Nick, GOOGLE "Duck Army Pier"...onthe home page inthe right corner is a data inset with the water temp on the pier recorded...interesting that this morning's temp is 59 versus your info : a full 20 degs warmer. This upwelling of cold water, caused by predominately south west wind is a local phenomenon. Thanks for your response.

Yeah, I read their plot and it does in fact show the dip in temperature, I love science, thanks for the education and the new site:)

That usually means the water is dirty as well. The Duck pier has always been one of the first things I look at when I am thinking of going to BB. Thier temperature sensor goes down a lot though.

For what it's worth I have noticed that no matter the wind direction once you get a week or so into September the water always seems to be clear and warm. I don't know why but I have been down there mid September with a West wind and the water was almost tropical and crystal clear.

Good old BBNWR showed her bad side today:water looked real drummy but that was just to taunt me. I could not hold with 10oz storm sinkers or grip leads (sputnicks)...and me with 5 dozen just caught mullets!!! Ended up at Lynnhaven with 5 pups...oh ,well!

Any size to the pups? I caught two today back by pleasure house, both were around 14in. At least they were bigger than the ones I got a week or so ago (around 10in). I was thinking of trying BBNWR tomorrow morning with mullet I caught today, but my heaviest rod only throws 6oz.
