Made it to the Cape Lookout jetty since the wind prevented chasing kings. Action was steady all day and kept moving up and down the jetty to get away from the spikes until we found some better fish. Couldn't pick up that last spec to make our limit of 8, but ended up with mostly 16"-18" fish. Got into a school of big grays at the end, a real nice flurry that lasted 45 minutes. Too bad we could only keep 1 apiece. Put a 20" and 22" in the box and threw back over 20, with 5 19" and nothing under 15". Best school of grays I've seen in awhile.

Nice ones Mark. Congrats. You are a much better fisherman than me. I got a decent Albacore right between the bight and the jetty along the drop off a few weeks ago. It was the last weekend in Oct. Beautiful weather that Fr/Sat. Pulled my lines in at the Cape about 6pm and caught a perfect sunset as I entered the Morehead Inlet. Will be back down one more time to hopefully get a few of those Trout at the Jetty and put Cat’s Cradle up for the season. Maybe I’ll see you out there?

Nice sunset shot! Yea, those albies are a blast, especially on light tackle. They are still busting nearshore if you feel like chasing after them. I find it really frustrating as they are really fast and really picky when casting to them. We got a couple big ones, pushing 20 lbs, last Monday fishing for kings at NW places. Those things will burn some line and don't give up at the end. I didn't post a report, but we limited out on snake kings, all around 8 or 9 lbs last Monday. My brother was down for a long weekend and the wind was oppressive. I really wanted to get him on the kings. We gave it a go on Sunday, the further out I got the worse it was. Gave up and hit the jetty. Sometimes things work out! The trout should be around for at least another month, holler if you get down and want to go.
