Outer Banks Fishing Report

Surf Fishing Report:
Ramp 44 was the hot spot with plenty Drum caught. Ramp 27 was another place that reported good Drum fishing. Sunday’s unfavorable conditions is the cause of having little news today. Drum were biting up and down the north beaches with a good Trout bite in Kitty Hawk. I have pictures sent from Chad Baniowski but the pictures have been reduced too small to use. They caught their limits of Trout. For the people arriving on the beach today for a week of fishing. Download this address on youe telephone and you can check your phone for current minimum lengths and creel limits.

Outer Banks Fishing Report

Surf Fishing Report:
The Point reported Drum, some big ones and Bluefishand Pompano. There were also scattered Pompano on most of the beaches. North of the Inlet there were Puppy Drum caught at the Inlet and Nags Head. Drum bite pretty good on the north end of the north beaches from KDH to Carova. The water temp is still in the 70’s. That is warm for this time of the year.
I’m happy to get good numbers of pictures everyday. Please state the size of your fish. Everyone should have something to measure with but if you don’t a dollar bill is 6 in. That sounds a little off the wall but better than a steep fine you might have to pay.

Avalon: Puffers and Puppy Drum.
