Weekly report 11/16/09

Rough week dominated by the strong nor’easter that’s claimed a number of houses on the Outer Banks, mostly in South Nag’s Head and Rodanthe, not to mention a few hundred feet of NC12 at Pea Island.  Water temps are ranging from upper 50s north to the upper 60s south, pretty seasonable for this time of year, but perhaps a bit on the warm side, especially south.  With a beautiful high pressure system taking hold, the weather is stablizing and the water seems to be clearing up nicely.  The big surf fishing news is of reports of a few big stripers taken from the Outer Banks beaches today and yesterday.  Reports from Hatteras Inlet (at least 2), Cape Point and the north beach.  Hopefully, conditions will be favorable for keeping a steady flow of stripers migrating our way over the coming weeks and months.  Some reports of puppy drum and specks north of Oregon Inlet today which is a great sign that surf conditions are rapidly improving.  A couple scattered reports of pups and nice sea mullet on bait, along with a few flounder in the suds rounds out the scant report for the week.  I hope to have a firsthand report stalking specks along the southeastern coast this coming weekend.  Its time.
