Another warm day on the Outer Banks. I do not ever remember having a February quite like this.
Anglers in Buxton and Frisco continue to catch Sea Mullet, Blow toads and Puppy Drum. There were 3 Black tip Shark beached at the Point and also 25 in to 32 in Red Drum. Jennette’s Pier is catching Shad.
I will take this opportunity to talk about our visiting Seals. Seals stop in occasionally on the Outer Banks to take a snooze and rest. The National fisheries Service Marine Mammal Network tells us stay a certain distance, watch to see if they are hurt and let them enjoy the beach without any aggravation. Humans are not to feed or come within 50 yards of them. Seals are protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act.
The winds are SE at 8 and the water is 48 degrees. Partly cloudy, a little windy, an east swell.
