Report from the beach and the river

From the beach:

Great albie fishing the last two days on the east side, today they jumped the shoals and could be found all along the beach from the Cape to the Sheraton. Big drum again yesterday on the east side. Lots of pups and trout along shack.

From the river and Capt. Gary Dubiel:

"Still plenty of specks coming to the boat out of Oriental with a higher percentage of nicer fish with the cooler weather. Puppy drum fishing has been red hot the last couple days with some excellent afternoon sight casting. A few flounder having rounded out a nice mixed bag.

At New Bern, striper fishing has been very good. We are landing fish on top waters and on jigs with plenty of slot and over slot fish in the mix. Specks and puppy have also been biting very well in the same areas. Most of the specks are pretty nice size."
