Surf Fishing Report:
Bluefish action has been over the top in Corolla for the last couple of days. They are running from 10 to 14 inches, perfect size for the pan. All you need is a small rod and a lure and you can have a blast. Bill Perry sent a picture of the beach covered with bait fish that beached themselves. Thanks for the pictures. I do love getting pictures telling the story. Also there are Sea Mullet, Spot and Bluefish on our beaches.
The winds are NE at 9 and the water temp is 77 degrees. The water has small swells, clear and warm. Nice day on the Outer Bank.
