In Summary:


Surf Fishing Report:

The day turned out to be much better than expected and there were fish. Today might be a different story. It has been said the Outer Banks will get 4 inches of rain. Sea Mullet were plentiful and there were citations. Some Black Drum and Puppies were also caught. Bluefish were at the point and a couple of citation Drum.  

I have a great picture of Drum this morning. The picture was taken by Devon Cage on the Poacher. I thank Kevin Miggels for sending the picture.

The winds are NE at 12 and the water temp is 64 degrees. Rain, windy, choppy swell.
