Gill-ty Is Charged
Did you hear about the evil tuna?
He was rotten to the albacore.
Slick calm out in the Atlantic, bringing in tile fish, yellow fin tuna, black fin tuna and mahi. Releases of blue and white marlin. Nearshore caught spanish mackerel and ribbon fish. Inshore came in with a different variety of false albacore and spanish mackerel on fly and of course some beautiful trout, blue fish and drum.
FUN FACT: There are estimates of 3,000 sunken craft off our shores. With that many downed vessels, it’s no surprise the Outer Banks is known as the Graveyard of the Atlantic. These shipwrecks date as far back as the early English settlements more than four centuries ago and as recently as spring 2020. The seasonal breezes erase the sand off some of these wooden hulks, making for neat pictures on the beach. Others are a short swim offshore and attract snorkelers and spearfishing enthusiasts. There are some pretty amazing underwater photos out there of Outer Banks wrecks and relics. The elements that shaped these islands over the millenia don’t take orders from anyone. The main reason Cape Hatteras and Bodie Island Lighthouses are so tall is to be seen for many miles over the horizon, to let sailors and ship captain’s know to be careful along our coast.
