Report - some success
Back from Hatteras, got some good windsurfing in and about three hours of fishing. Fished the channel that runs from Avon north close to shore. Did a sunrise outing, shaired my spot with turtles and a huge otter. Like a small seal. I managed to hook an ocean pearch/scup looking thing and a few sea trout.
I was staying on a salt pond and there was an impressive worm hatch on two mornings, no fish on the worms though. The laughing gulls made a day of it. There were menhaden in the salt pond also, and on day one, I saw some flashes below the water, something eating the menhaden. That was a windsurf day, so I didn't fish them, never saw the flashes again. Maybe bluefish or Redfish ?
Saw some two foot wide sea turtles and a few big unidentified fish (not sharks, but maybe a four or five foot long creature) while windsurfing south of Hatteras island in the ocean side. Report of a six foot tiger shark caught from the same beach I was sailing from later in the week.
It seems that most Hatteras folks don't fish with artifical lures much, let alone fly fishing. Saw one guy throwing some flies in oregon inlet as we drove by coming in. Back to the new england board till next year.
