Good morning. Here’s the Outer Banks Beach, Surf, & Fishing Report for Tuesday, December 6, 2011.
This video was shot at 9:00 AM at the Lillian St. beach access in Kitty Hawk.
Time is moving quickly. Already December 6th. Holidays will be here before we know it. But how about a perfect December beach day to keep us smiling?!
Wow it’s nice today! Sun, upper 60’s, light southwest breeze, fun surf, empty beaches, and the speckled trout are biting. Can’t ask for much more than that.
Temps will cool as we get closer to the weekend, and should be a seasonable 50 degrees by Saturday.
The offshore breeze is about 5-10 mph out of the southwest, and it’s cleaning up the chest high swell we have in the area, so it’s a great day to catch some OBX surf! The swell will stick around through tomorrow, and the wind will be out of the southwest tomorrow, but it’s going to pick up to 15-20 mph. So the surf should be decent tomorrow, but today is probably the highlight of the week.
OBX fishing is starting to slow down, but we’ve still got some good activity. Offshore they are catching yellow fin tuna. We’re getting limited reports from the piers these days since Avalon, Outer Banks, and Nags Head are closed for the season, but Jennette’s and Kitty Hawk are reporting speckled trout in the area. The big ObX fishing news is that we are starting to get reports of stripers in the area. A 40 pound striper was hauled in at the Oregon Inlet bridge over the weekend. As the water continues to cool, we should start to see some great striper bites! Stay tuned.
Hope to see you soon. Have fun!
