Good morning from Topsail Island. I praise God that we are able to live at the beach. We are so thankful for all our many blessings.

It's not so great weather-wise. The skys are overcast, looks like it might bust out raining any moment. I have the remnents of a migraine, so I am kicked back at home relaxing.
The fishing report;
Surf City Pier caught the first king of the year (I think first) yesterday. Will Rivenbark caught the king Wednesday morning weighing in at 15 lbs. Congrats to Will who put up a courageous effort landing the king. He fought the fish down the north side of the pier about hundred feet or so before they could get the gaf in and haul the fish over the railing. Early am, there were a few blues caught on gotchas. I know of only one spanish caught yesterday, (caught by Gary Gibson) but there may have been more caught after I left.
Sea View Pier at North Topsail Beach reports spanish and blues, good bite early, and slow but steady for the rest of the day. A king was landed Wednesday morning, a 33 pounder. Nice! Sea View also reported scattered catches of small virginia mullets and small spots throught the day.
Jolly Roger Pier reported lots of blues, a few choppers, and even a couple of 25 inch class red drum.

Surf fishing is still rather slow, or at least for me, but should improve with a few more degrees of water temps. The water temp at Onslow Bay is reported at 69*.  Sounds like spring fishing is here, it should only get better for the next month.
