Default Past Week @ Atlantic Beach

My wife and I have a camper down in Atlantic Beach, and while down the last few days, I noticed tons of boats between the inlet and Triple S. I counted 28 at one point, maybe a few miles offshore, but some coming only a few 100 yards. Were any of you guys out there? If so, what was biting? I figured maybe blues or Spanish.

I figured the guys in close were looking for Spanish. It was so flat there was even a pontoon boat trolling off the beach.

The guys farther out out were packed pretty tight with each other. Like I said, I counted 28 boats in a small area, so I assume they got onto a bait ball.

Boat was stolen this past winter, so I am beach bound for awhile.

A mile and a quarter straight off the circle is the AR315 reef complex, liberty ship and various habitats sunk around it. Were they in that area?

There was bait schooling just off of Fort Macon beach and the Spanish were on fire. Great fishing!

that’s what I was seeing, then. It looked like everyone was having a great time all day.

It seemed like Friday it was a bit further southwest between AR315 and 330 area. But again, I was just observing from the surf.

I even saw a pontoon boat trolling off the beach!

We limited out on Spanish in 45 minutes with 4 people on board last week just outside Ocracoke inlet.

I was there on Thursday. Trolling for spainish. We were slow around AR315 and I came into shallower water and the birds started hitting. Boats started coming in and we started catching. Great day on the water. Been a long time with no wind.
