Did you get rained out on the Vac.?
I was down 6/17-6/25 and had beautiful weather but on the return trip it got rainy. We stopped in VA Beach for 6/24-6/25 and missed the rain altogether, but it was getting windy and rainy when we left the OBX. I was in Waves just below Rodanthe.
As far as the surf fishing, the locals I spoke w/ don't even fish much this time of year except from boat. Cobia were around w/ some nice ones in the surf, but all I had were short flounder, small blues, and if you wanted croakers and spots you could have your fill(boring IMO). Only saw one puppy drum caught around the inlet(18") and I got one small spade. All in all,it's still better to be fishing and not catching then not fishing at all
. I'm planning a late Nov. trip as we speak and the stripers and big drum should be starting up by then.
Let me know how you did. Corrrolla is nice area.
