Days 4 and 5 Ocracoke

Two great days weather wise.  Each morning starts out a bit overcast, but by afternoon we have full sun.  As typical, the wind picks up throughout the day, but the strongest wind of the week has probably been a hair over 15.  Today we had some SE, but mostly its been SW.

The fishing continues to lag behind the weather, but there is some action.  Goes without saying that big bluefish are the name of the game.  They are joined by a few small flounder, scattered small bluefish, very few sea mullet and today, I caught a 10 pound black drum.  I’ve also been finding small flounder and small gray trout in the sound.  This afternoon, I kayaked out to Hatteras Inlet and found small blues crashing glass minnows at the rip.  I was able to entice a few with a yo-zuri swimmer and a lead head grub.  I also saw a few Spanish jump but didn’t hook any.
