go south.down around the point.it will still take a day or so for the surf and water color to calm down and clear a a little.blow toads,sea mullet,grey trout,flounder,spot,and croakers,tailor blues,dog fish.all should pick up a little when it settles down.the botttom feeders will not mind the dirty water so much as they use it for cover as they migrate from inlet to inlet.water temps should still be ok for all these species but should get bettwer towards the end of the week.probably will be some drum around as well .with the temps in the air moving up the wind should turn to the southwest and thats what you want for hateras,buxton,rodanthe,and salvo area.good luck and let us know how you do.
George,"Pit Boss", uses the chrome ball rig in the surf. He cats it out and lets it roll along the bottom, attracting all thoe bottom species. What he's doing....is trolling along the surf line. He really wacks those bottom species. He has a 3 inch leader to a red or pink or white fly that has a 5/0 hook onit. He attaches a strip of mulklet or some such fillet . Now about 16 inches ABOVE that chrome ball he adds a dropper loop. To this he puts on a T'ZER fly and a 3/0 hook. To this he adds a WHOLE SQUID HEAD AND a small strip of squid.
Cast this out and walk the beach as the current take it along the surf WHERE the fish are. It works for him. Try it.
Hope I've helped.
Fish the jetties and deeper holes for the fish.
'Till next time.
Keep your feet dry and catch 'em up!.

its probably too crowded on the obx to try that, and the current is usually ripping so much that you'd about have to run to keep up with your rig. When i went for stripers in decmeber an 8oz pyramid was not holding, and its worse now depending on the wind
