Surf Fishing Report:
Scattered Bluefish, Sea Mullet and Spot. There was a fast and quick Drum bite south of ramp 4 yesterday. Erin White and her Dad were hooking up with rod bending Drum every couple of minutes. They caught about 8 Drum, all about 36 inches all in a short time. I could see from the pictures I received there are some really nice sloughs at the inlet. Fishing should be good on all the beaches. Conditions are good.
The winds are ENE at 8 and the water temp is 77 degrees. Another nice day with an ocean breeze, clear water, good swells, surfers are out early,
