Good morning. Here's the Outer Banks Beach, Surf, & Fishing Report for Friday, May 6, 2011.

This video was shot at the Lillian St. beach access in Kitty Hawk at 9:00 AM.

It's a gorgeous spring day. It's been a bit chilly the past couple days...if you can call 60 degrees chilly. :) We had a stiff wind out of the north brining in some chilly air, but the wind switched to the west last night; so we have a nice offshore wind out of the southwest at about 10 mph. The west wind is bringing in some warm air and cleaning up the surf. Lots of sun and temps in the 70's for the weekend.

There a waist high swell coming in, and the offshore wind is cleaning it up for some fun longboard waves. A few guys out enjoying the waves at Lillian St.

The OBX fishing is going strong...and getting better everyday. The water temps are fluctuating between mid 50's and low 60's depending on the wind, and as the water temps heat up, the fishing action will continue to increase. Offshore is still seeing a lot of tuna and dolphin, and cobia are starting to come up from Hatteras. The piers have very consistent reports of a variety of fish - blue fish, croaker, sea mullet, blowtoads, flounder. Few reports out of the surf, but we should see some great surfcasting soon.
