Surf Fishing Report:
I am receiving questions about red matter in the surf and on the beaches. It is called Naked Butterfly Jellies. It can happen when the SW wind sweeps the bottom of the ocean and brings the jellies and the cold water to the surface. I have a picture sent from J. C. Dail.
Decent Sea Mullet and small Spot scattered. I should remind everyone the point open yesterday. There are some happy anglers.
The winds are SW at 5 and the water temp is 73 degrees. The water cleared, it’s flat and has warmed since yesterday.

The Little Bridge on the Nags Head/Manteo causeway reported Small Bottom fish and small Trout.
