Inshore anglers "blistered the Puppy Drum" in the Pamlico Sound today - lots and lots of Drum! Offshore anglers had a bit of a struggle today, but the bite picked up some this afternoon. The Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna bites were fair. Some boats found schools of Dolphin. The King Mackerel bite is picking up and bottom fishing was pretty good. A beautiful day is on tap for tomorrow - let's hope the fishing improves.

Check out the pictures along with the smiles - way to go! The fishing offshore was on the slow side. Some Dolphin, Wahoo, and Blackfin Tuna were caught. Bottom fishing was good. Some Sailfish and one Mako Shark were seen -even on slower days there is a lot to see when you travel offshore.
