This weekend the island hosts the 23rd annual Ocracoke Invitational Surf Fishing Tournament. I have not been to the beach in the last few days, but reports indicate that, as usual, fishermen & fisherwomen are lined up all along the surf. Last year an unexpected northeaster brought strong winds and high tides (many roads were flooded and portions of the tournament were canceled). This year the weather is nearly perfect -- at least for a spring vacation. Don't know if the fish are biting, but there's nothing but blue skies and warm temperatures.
