You could skip a nickel to Frying Pan Tower this morning, despite forcast of 10-15; 2-4. We are in a summer time pattern of SW prevailing winds which usually means flat calm in the morning, and a sea breeze in the afternoon. Reading the forecast can be misleading. For the offshore Far Out Shoot Out fishermen, that means a good ride out with flat seas, and a tail wind coming home. Nobody has messed with the fish out there in last few days so they should be hungrey. Time to Go Fish!

Found a couple of nice keepers for the dinner table yesterday. Peanunt menhaden are hanging around the Ocean Isle Marina and beyond towards Sunset Bridge. Menhaden have also been flipping good in front of the canals at Holden Beach. We did get a few short fish on mud minnows, but the menhaden produced these solid keepers. If the wind isn't blowing too hard artificial baits in chartreuse and white color patterns will also draw some strikes from flounder. Water temperatures did cool a bit, but has rebounded back into the lower 70's which should be perfect for a good bite. Happy Mothers Day! See ya on the water!
