There’s been a whole lot of cleaning up happening over the last week since Hurricane Sandy showed her face. Oceanfront and near oceanfront homes in Kitty Hawk are still recovering and cleaning up the mess that was mostly caused by the ocean over-wash and high surf tides. The northern parts of highway 12 (the beach road) in Kitty Hawk are still blocked to traffic but seem to be clearing up slowly as the cleanup continues.
On a more positive note, the weather couldn’t be more beautiful today! The temperatures were in the low 40′s last night and they’re now in the low 60′s. The sun is shining bright and it feels like an early Fall day. The low tonight is 44 degrees.
There are reports of Puppy Drum being caught this morning from the piers. Other than that, there isn’t much else besides enjoying this November day on the beach!
Kitty Hawk Pier, Nov. 10, 2012
There’s a small wave just on the south side of the Kitty Hawk Pier. The waves are knee to thigh high with an occasional waist high wave. Conditions are semi glassy becoming less this afternoon.

The fish are still biting! They’re catching Bluefish, Puppy Drum, Spot, Trout, Croaker and Flounder…some Red Drum were caught yesterday, but haven’t heard of any today…yet.
The waves are small and choppy, around knee high. It looks to be fairly small all week until the weekend – it’s supposed to be around head high on Sat/Sun! Let’s hope for clean conditions.

The surf has been around waist high with the occasional chest high sets. The wind is making it a little too disorganized. The swell should be at its highest today around 3:00PM. It looks to be fairly small through the weekend.

The surf looks fun this morning! Lots of early morning riders. The waves are knee to waist high and clean conditions. The wind will shift this afternoon but hopefully these conditions will hold or get better.

The fishing is still good. Everyone’s catching Drum! Also catching some Bluefish, Spot, Pigfish, Sand Perch, Sea Mullet and more!
The surf has picked up this afternoon. It appears to be shoulder to head high, sometimes a little too disorganized to ride, but plenty of ridable waves out there. Not sure how long it’ll last, but get out there while you can.
