Fished 34 north of Avon, great day at the beach, Lots of fisherman but no one caught anything that I saw. Spent five hours throwing mullet chunks at various locations and never had a bite. 10 oz did not hold bottom. 

They are setting up for the surf contest but the weather does not look good for the next couple days.

Weather permitting I will work the south facing beaches tomorrow or the sound side.

Gave up on the Avon beaches and went to the south. First 43 which was crowded with guys doing nothing, so after a while I was off the 49 near the airport. After several hours all I caught was small sharks and again no one else was doing much. I did see one puffer get caught so that is my report, one puffer.

Lots of rain schedule for tomorrow, maybe it will turn on the fish.

It has not improved yet. 

According to Frank&Fran it was the worst surf fishing contest in years, very few fish with the largest being 24 inches,

I fished today ( 6 early hours) with nothing to report. The surf is dead, I am not even losing bait.

My nephew a fly fisherman went out on a kayak with some guide friends from New Inlet and caught his largest red ever. They report large schools reds (100's of fish) in six foot of water in the sound.

I just got back on Friday. I fished the previous 8 days and caught 126  nice whiting, including one that weighed 2lb 4 oz. I filled out the citation paperwork at Red Drum Tackle. All were caught on Ramp 43 and 44. All were caught on sand fleas. I fished 4 days with winds out of the NE between 20 to 30. I caught 34 on Thursday and had to leave the beach at 3:30 to meet  a Spectrum tech that never showed up .My neighbor Butch caught 24 in 2hrs. He also landed a 44x28 red drum last week fishing with me too. You don't  often see an 80 yr old man that can do that. I said it before and I will say it again...He is the best surf fisherman on the Island.
