Looking at the weather yesterday I had planned on fishing the bay and bought fresh surf clams to drown, wind was blowing pretty steady from the west so with the tide going out it would have been good.  Hit the bay and the wind started to decrease so I went to the inlet and then beyond.  I ended up fishing a wreck in 65' and caught so many 12.5" seabass but they were just that so back they went, and ended up with 7 13" to 14" keepers and a mess of small tog.  Wind kicked up after about an hour from the east and the waves were hitting me beam on for a couple of very uncomfortable hours, ran out of bait and headed home for a nice fresh seabass meal.  It was great to finally get some meat!!

We were in the bay looking for blues and tried a number of spots but everything was dead.  Water temp at 53, down from 60 the week before and we had the wind chop which made it a bit wet.  Going to try early next week and then Friday!!!  How big is your boat?

I was fishing from shore in Great Bay just before high tide this morning. Caught 3 descent blues on SP.   Others were catching on bunker.  Pretty much every cast.

I was really glad for the pilot house on the way home, it was a wet ride for anyone w/o some type of enclosure, I really do like having windshield wipers!!!!

Headed to Cape Lookout today, we'll be staying in Atlantic Beach.  Good Luck this week, weather will probably be good since I'm leaving.

You're going to the Cape Hatteras area??  Cool.  Good luck with the fishing.  You won't need it, of course.  Catch em up.

 

Are you towing, going by sea or through the Chesapeake??
