This strong cold-front and strong north winds should have them chewing on the OI shoals next week. Thats what im counting on[grin] just as long as it lays down enough to get out and soak an eel.

Heading down Sunday to fish Monday and Tuesday. Have seen reports of scattered rockfish catches but no major run of 'em as of yet.
Just got back from being done there over the weekend. I was unable to go out of OI due to the fact I was working on my boat. But talking to the commerical guys there is a few off the beach around the Currituck light. Still waiting for the bulk of them to show up around the inlet.
Hopefully I'll have the boat finished by then. Leaving tomorrow to go to Cali to visit the wife's family for turkey day.

We have been in Nags Head for 6 days. There have been a few rockfish caught outside of Oregon Inlet. Fished inside inlet for a few days and it has been real slow. Only caught one inside and did not see any others caught. Fished Mann's Harbor Bridge and it also real slow. Wind has been blowing a gale most of the week.
If you can manage your way out Oregon Inlet you might find some. It should turn on in a week or 2 depending on the water temperature. We have next week off as well and most likely will head up to the Bridge Tunnel on Sunday night and hopefully find a more consistent bite.
