Fishing Report:
There is not beach report and no charter news.
The weather has been hard on our fishermen this year. We have had plenty of time to clean our rods and reels and get them ready for the fishing season. A lot of lines will need replacing. Some of the reels are not working as they should and a new one looks awfully good. Visit the guys at TW’s today. They can tell you all about the new stuff coming in everyday.

The winds are S at 14 and the water temp is 47 degrees. Over cast, rain expected, breezy, large swells.

Fishing Report:
I am more than ready for a slight warm up we are having in the weather today.
With this cold weather we have had another problem with cold-stunned Turtles. This time there have been 100 Turtles reported. The Hatteras Island Wildlife Rehabilitation is on it.
We had our yearly “Tree Day” on the Outer Banks. A convoy of 24 pickup trucks from VA Beach made their way to the Outer Banks. The trees are to help trap sand and stabilize the beach. Thanks to our locals and VA Beach that collect the trees every year.

The winds are N at 24 and the water temp is 49 degrees. Sunny, windy, rough Ocean, white caps as far as you can see.

Fishing Report:
Slow winter fishing is the time to give your rod and reels a good cleaning and buy new line if needed. Clean out your tackle boxes and throw out the crap. If the back of your ORV looks like mine, you might start on that chore to begin with.
There is no fishing news this morning from either Island.
The White Marlin I am showing this morning was a state record.

The winds are E at 6 and the water temp is 52 degrees. Cloudy, breezy, messy small swells.

Fishing Report:
Hold your hat; it’s going to be a windy and cold weekend with wind gust as high as to 37 mph.
There was some action reported on the Island. There were Puppies and Black Drum at the jetties, Sea Mullet behind the motels and big Shark at the point. A good puppy Drum bite was reported on the south beach as well. The Ocean is still unusually warm for this time of the year. I am just surprise the news is so hard to come by everyday.

The winds are NW at 26 and the water temp is 52 degrees. Overcast, windy, rough ocean.

Fishing Report:
A few surfers and glass hunters on the beach. The wind will switch tonight and a big temp drop.
The only news from the surf are Sharks at the point.
Last year on Jan 13th the first Bluefin was caught for the season. In 2020 Jan 13 Phideaux Charters in Wanchese reported a Bluefin caught and I think it might be the first of this season. It is the only one I have heard of this year.

The winds are SW at 15 and the water temp is 51 degrees. Mostly cloudy, breezy, med swells.
