Good morning. Here’s your Outer Banks Beach, Surf, & Fishing Report for Thursday, February 2, 2012.
This video was shot just south of the Avalon Pier at the 5th St. beach access in Kill Devil Hills at 9:00 AM.
Happy Ground Hog Day! Unfortunately, Mr. Phil saw his shadow this morning, so more winter on the way. But with a winter of sun and 60 degree temps, who can complain?!
Overcast and some showers to start today, but hopefully we’ll see the sun by the afternoon. 60 degrees and a light offshore breeze out of the southwest. Temps will cool to the low 50’s for the weekend, and the sun should stick around.
No surf to report. The ocean is flat. Swell will pick up tomorrow, but that’s only because the wind is going to switch to the northeast and kick up some wind swell. Could have some knee high longboard waves over the weekend, but nothing substantial.
OBX fishing is slow, but a couple ok reports. Good reports of tuna offshore. And in the not great but we’ll take what we can get category, word is there was a big school of speckled trout just north of the VA/OBX border yesterday. Fingers crossed that we see a good bite of something soon.
Hope to see you soon. Have fun!
