Wind Wind Wind!

Lots of wind down here at Topsail over the last several days as the remnants of Ida rolled through. Throw in quite a few inches of rain, and you make for some pretty nasty weather. The last time I checked, It was due to roll on out of here tomorrow. This should make for a nice fall weekend at the beach. Before the winds moved in, the fishing was going quite well. The nice virginia mullet continue to bite at night, along with flounder, drum, (puppy and black (one black drum over 40lbs was caught and released last week from the surf just down from the pier)) blues, a few spots, and some pompano. The trout still haven't shown up in good numbers yet. This is due in large part to the extremely warm water temperatures that we are seeing. It is not unusual for the water to already be in the 50's by now. As it is, it is still in the mid to upper 60's! This is a good thing for lots of other species of fish though. It has the potential to prolong our season by several weeks if everything aligns right! It is hard to say what the results of this blow are going to be on the fishing. It could be just what we need to trigger one last good spot run. I do look for the mullet to return in soon as the water calms enough to make things fishable. Give us a call at the Jolly Roger for an up to date fishing/ocean conditions report!

Come on down to Topsail this weekend and enjoy some of this wonderful mind weather that mother nature has provided us with!
