There was something for everyone with the Inshore boats today. They had excellent catches of Sheepshead along with Red Drum and a couple of Bluefish and Gray Trout.
The weather has been up and down lately. Some days start out with cool mornings that stay cool for the rest of the day. Then we have some days that start out cool but turn warm for the afternoon. Tomorrow looks like it will be very warm due to a strong SW wind. It makes it hard to know how to dress when you leave the house in the mornings.

Another day of the big boats staying tied to the docks. The Inshore boats had another day of good fishing in the Pamlico. They had Speckled Trout, Gray Trout, Bluefish and keeper Red Drum.
It looks like the boats will be tied up for most of the week as a storm may set its sights on the SE coast after it visits Florida.

Another beautiful but breezy day so the Offshore boats stayed home. The Inshore boats had a sunny, warm day to fill coolers. Black Pearl and Tightline managed to bring in the meat. They had Red Drum, Bluefish, Gray Trout and Speckled Trout and released a few Gag Groupers.
We're keeping an eye on the weather as next week looks like it will be interesting with a storm that may head to the US if forecasts are correct.

The NE wind has not let up yet and the ocean is still rough. The big boats stayed tied up but one Inshore boat tried their luck and fishing was scrappy. Black Pearl did manage to catch a couple of Trout in the Speckled and Gray variety along with some Bluefish and a Puppy Drum.

It's been a windy few days that have left the Offshore boats tied to the docks, but one Inshore boat trekked out into the Pamlico Sound and had a good day on the water. Tightline had a good catch of Red Drum with mostly keepers and some nice Bluefish. Red Drum are likely to bite on windy days and the Bluefish don't want to miss out on the attention.
