OH BOY! TAX DAY!! Now that that is over with lets talk about something really important. Fishing! The inshore fishing has been picking up pretty good over the last few days. The sea mullet and blow fishing has been pretty good both inside the hool of the Cape and the turning basin here in Morehead City. We are starting to see the water temperatures rise fairly rapidly as well. Hopefully this hard Northeast blow that is going to be happening for the next few days will not make the temps drop any. There has also been very good fishing for red drum in the ocean. There have been large shcools of reds hanging around in the surf and they have been in the upper slot size. We have also seen red drum back in the marshes as well. Offshore the wahoo bite is continuing to be very good as well as blackfin utna ans some gaffer dolphin are starting to show up.
