   A little drizzly this morning but it's supposed to be a nice day out. I'm not sure how everyone did last night but I hope there was a good bite. Quite in the shop so far this morning and I have not heard of anything thus far but I will pass on any info as it comes in.
  We do have a couple of shout outs and some fish pics sent in by Lauren McCann and her group getting it done with some mullet, black drum and a nice one it was and some puppy drum and I do see the infamous green and pink rod that the ladies always do good on. We also have Brian Douglas with another fine puppy drum that he caught in Corolla. Thanks so much for the report and pics you guys and gals.
  Along the beach, we had a good drum bite in the morning and I am hoping that it was good in the afternoon as well but we will just have to wait and see what happened. Things should improve in the surf this week as we are still battling the rip current from a storm well offshore and it is making things difficult to hold the bottom. It is the weekend so I think I am about the only one that puts a report out there and info is hard to come by.
  The piers are a great way to take advantage of this current and they have had some good runs of fish lately with blues, spanish, drum, and trout. The nearshore boats are out looking for cobia and there are also blues and spanish around. On the inside trout and drum remain around the inlet. Offshore fishing has been on the scrappy side of things. There are a lot of sharks out there looking to take your catch away. They are still managing to find some nice size mahi and yellowfin, blackfin, wahoo, and the billfish are there as well. Bottom fishing remains strong with the sea bass and tiles. The water today is 68 degrees and the waves around 2 to 4 feet with a strong rip, be safe!

Thinking of a charter boat give us a call and we will get you all set up.
