It was a long week that was slow till the end. Friday morning at the Nags Head pier was the best day. Spots and blues were hitting and a trout even showed up. It got even better for the blues when I started cleaning fish. My partner would throw one fresh from the water on the block every time I got one cleaned, I got the short end of that stick. Personally I saw the better fish come while surf fishing in the late evening but you just couldn't put any numbers together.
