Finally today I have something to talk about on the fishing front. Today on the surf in Duck and Corolla we are getting a few sea mullet, small bluefish, puffer fish, and a handful of red drum. Water temp today is 54 degrees. Winds NNE 12 knots.
Surf and pier fishing has been pretty slow lately with the exception of skate and small shark. Better weather will be arriving tomorrow and looks like it will be sticking around. Hopefully fishing will improve soon. Water temp in Duck is 54 degrees NNE winds at 10 knots. Down in Hatteras and further south there has been some pretty good drum fishing still happening.
Mark set me up with everything I needed to do a little surf fishing while on vacation in Duck, NC this week – rod and reel, rig, bait, license – even a couple of tips and tricks . . . Within 40 minutes I caught a 24″ red drum. Thanks Mark! – Phil Forbes from Ontario, Canada .We have red drum in Duck surf!!!

Brad & Cassandra from Pennsylvania have been catching and releasing healthy drum on light tackle all week using a combination of Bob’s fresh mullet and grass shrimp fished on drum rigs – rigging supplies and bait both purchased from Bob’s and of highest quality (as usual). Thanks so much for remaining a staple in our yearly trip to Duck for the fall red drum bite!
Thank you so much to John for his super friendly personality. He is above and beyond courteous and helpful. I caught a 16-inch spotted sea trout. But my best prize for the day was this 25 inch Red Drum that I caught surf casting in Duck using Fresh Finger Mullet from Bob’s Bait & Tackle.
