Corolla Fishing Report
Waves around two feet today with a water temp of 75. We have had scattered reports of bluefish along the beach along with mullet and king fish. There a lot of people fishing for shark this week haven't heard back from any of them. The piers are slow with mostly mullet and bluefish unless you go further south. Nearshore boats are getting plenty of ribbon fish and spanish while the offshore fleet did get out yesterday and landed plenty of mahi some albacore and a couple of blue marlin also caught. We have some charters out all day today and I plan on being down at the docks to see how they did.
On the lighter side little Ethan Richmond from Virgina caught his first bluefish in an unusual way. While walking along the beach with his dad they came up on several people fishing and stopped to watch. The anglers on the beach weren't catching anything but then a huge off spray came down and swooped up a bluefish, as it tried to get air born again the bird hit a kite string causing the bird to release the fish and fell to the beach where you guessed it little Ethan ran over and picked up the 12 inch fish and held it up high for all to see and didn't need any fancy equipment. One happy father and one happy little boy, the bird did survive without injury but was still hungry.
