Good morning from the Outer Banks! Temperatures continue to be summer-like here on the beach even though this is the last Monday of October. Things are slowing down here on the beach, but the “fishin” has been tremendous lately
Puppy Drum plentiful
The last few weeks on the Outer Banks we have been seeing a number of people fishing at sunrise and sunset. Folks are racing across the beach road with pole in hand early in the morning late in the afternoon. They are headed to the beach to put a line in the water at the best time of the day to catch fish. This October the fish that many have been catching are Puppy Drum.
Puppy Drum are juvenile Red Drum fish that are sized at approximately 18 to 26 inches in size. They are very plentiful this fall with anglers catching their limit of 3 fish per day within minutes of arriving in the correct spot to fish on the OBX.
This week’s Memory Monday photo memory comes to us from Cynthia Wells. Cynthia captured this photo of a double pole angler looking for dinner while relaxing on the beach.
What a great picture, and we hope he was able to catch dinner while he was enjoying the day. Thank you Cynthia for providing this week’s Memory Monday photo memory.
We look forward to serving you again soon.
All the best from the beach!
