A breezy week turned into a gorgeous weekend as the Northeast winds subsided long enough for anglers to hit the beaches in T-Shirts, and offshore boats to enjoy calm waters all the way to the Gulf Stream. Lots of fish were being reeled in from all over the Outer Banks, including lots of drum, blues, sea mullet, and even speckled trout around the jetties near the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.
We’re expecting a coastal storm over the next couple of days, but that just means the shelling is going to be great by the weekend, when the air temperatures are expected to reach almost 70 degrees. It’s certainly shaping up to be a good November.
