Surf Fishing Report:
A slight chance of showers today and night and we could use it. Another beautiful day and extremely hot. From ramp 38 to ramp 49 there were Sea Mullet and Bluefish with some Spanish in Avon and Buxton and Pompano in Frisco. North of Oregon Inlet Sea Mullet, Bluefish and large Pompano reported in S. Nags Head. Pompano are caught when the water is warm and clear. They will feed anytime of the day on shrimp and sand fleas. Often pompano are caught just off a few feet of the drop-off close to the beach where they are waiting for the sand fleas to be swept into their mouths by receding waves. Pompano are like Spadefish, they like small pieces of bait because they have small mouths.
