Surf Fishing Report:
Some good news this morning. “ This morning, Cape Hatteras National Seashore biological technicians will modify the signage in the Cape Point area in order to allow full ORV access to the tip of Cape Point. ORVs will have access to Cape Point starting at 8 a.m. Cape Point access may need to be modified again if shorebird nesting activity is observed, but we do not expect additional nesting at Cape Point this late in the season. “
