Weather has been beautiful and the fishing has been exceptional on the Outer Banks! That will change tomorrow as hurricane Fiona moves by Offshore. The wind and waves will arrive overnight making for tough Surf conditions, while also keeping the offshore fleet at the dock. However the strong winds will hopefully stur up some Big Drum for the local fishing piers over the next few days!
In the Surf we have received reports of Big Drum, Puppy Drum, Black Drum, Flounder, Bluefish, Spanish Mackerel, Spot, Croaker, Sea Mullet, and a few Pompano over the last couple of days.
From the piers the Spanish Mackerel bite has been very good in the morning and evenings with a handful of Bluefish mixed in. There has also been a fair amount of Sea Mullet, Spot, Croaker, Flounder, and Sheepshead.
Soundside has been very good with anglers finding plenty of Drum, limits of Speckled Trout, Bluefish, and a good amount of Flounder. Remember Flounder season only has a little over 8 days left!
Offshore has been beautiful this week. Boats have come in with Dolphin, Blackfin, Yellowfin, and Wahoo. There has also been a lot of laundry hanging out lately as the Marlin fishing has been consistent!
