Surf Fishing Report:
Action was on the slow side for the weekend. There were Drum caught and some Trout.
NW winds call for good Drum fishing. Easy to find the sloughs. The piers are already reporting Drum this morning. Puppy Drum are bottom feeders. You can use a bottom rig with fresh mullet, menhaden or spot for bait. I use a triple swivel rig most of the time, and I often catch a Puppy Drum when I am fishing for Trout using lead head jigs with twister tail or grub. Puppy Drum have a minimum length 18”- 27” TL. The wind is NW at 8 and the water temp is 73 degrees.

Sound Fishing Report:
The Little Bridge on the Nags Head/Manteo causeway reported some keeper Trout.

Pier Fishing Report:
Avalon: Slow.
Nags Head: Spot, Croakers Sea Mullet, Trout, and 2 Puppies.
