Surf Fishing Report:
Bluefish were plentiful at the point. Anglers using metal caught 2-4 pounders. A couple of Red Drum and Sea Mullet were also caught at the point. Avon caught Bluefish and Buxton reported Sea Mullet, Blow Toads and Blues. Frisco had Sea Mullet. Hatteras added Flounder to the report
North of the inlet there are Bluefish and Sea Mullet. Also our Trout fishermen are having good luck with some nice keepers. Ryan Rhodes caught a 4.9 # Speck using a jig with a chartreuse gulp on a double rig. It was almost there but no cigar. A citation Speck is 5 lbs. Ryan is an avid Outer Banks fisherman and creates some great videos.
The wind is NE at 20 and the water temps is 61 degrees. It is a gloomy day and misty. The water is clear this morning and we all know that means Bluefish and Trout.
