0730-1530 at BBNWR in the rain and east wind...water looked real "drummy"... Two bluefish and one barjack. One guy caught a sand perch another guy said he caught 4 "red drum" Friday... I was too wet and cold to ask for details... Most likely puppies.

Dismal fishing on a beautiful weekend. Saturday fished early until the thunderstorm chased me off. Zip. Fished the high tide Sunday afternoon til dark. One roundhead. Bait was all ultra fresh:the crabs sure liked it. Saw a couple bunker caught and that was all for two days.

Thanks for the report. That’s a bummer, but I’d take any day on the beach than inside. Can’t wait for the cabs to leave. It should start heating up in the surf soon.

Weather great this Saturday. Fishing? Not so much. Anything less than a cinder block would wash up on the beach in 5 minutes.
Heard somebody caught a shark. Otherwise, nada.

Saved some 10 and 12 oz wing sinkers for a rainy day. So dusting off the one piece "Old School" heaver and screwing on a 40 year old ABU 8600 for throwing big leads and big baits in the BBNWR surf tomorrow. Likely will be a repeat of Saturday but it is looking drummy.i

Thanks for the report and I hope you have better luck today. I was 9 miles to your south on Saturday, fishing right at the fence at Carova, same result 8s were washing up in no time flat. I didn't see any mullet running yet.

Well, no... That was a second hand report. I kind of soured on tagging after personally tagged and released hundreds of fish with Dr.Jim Wright til his passing... I am for tagging but I have retired from tagging.

And it looks like BBNWR again Saturday, unless I come to my senses (and that's not likely...I have a very loose grip on reality)
Would be nice to fish in less than a freaking GALE, though.

So I went to Lynnhaven and caught ONE teeny flounder and a few spots...nice cool weather but water dirty on both sides of low tide.
