In Summary:

Surf Fishing Report:
I have no news from yesterday. Today will be a better day and the week ahead is looking good.
This is a good time for me to remind people that an “all wheel Drive” is not the same as a 4×4 and lowering tire pressure is essential. You should have a plan to remove your vehicle safely in the event you get stuck on the beach. Stop and read your signs when you enter a ramp. It will save a lot of trouble in the long run. I have pictures.

The winds are W at 11 and the water temp is 68 degrees. Sun is shining, light winds, clean swells.

Sound Fishing Report:
The Little Bridge on the Nags Head/Manteo causeway reported slow this morning. A few Striper and bottom fish.
