:popcorn:Ill go ahead and tape some guides on a rod again. The butt section will be nothing but a reel seat again......

Ill take a pint of Howards finest grog...Along with a cheese burger of course.

I guess its a us's vs you's type of thing hugh?

We'll be watching those temps. Im sure our team captain up there in Hattie (DD) will be scouting out a hole for the home team so we'll stop off at the pony for some am breakfast and get to catching a little afterwards.

don't under estimate the "well".....its been a great December.....my re-model is almost done....the missus is happy...and she agreed that I deserve a break some time in March. The ju-ju is runnin' strong;)

I'm hoping to recruit Walt D and that OBX Rookie.
Thats at least 4 between them 2.
Teo- at least 2
Neil - at least 2
NJ - at least 1 1/2 ( do one eyed drummies count?)
Clay - at least 2

I'll do my best to provide moral support, and help keep the cooler full of ice and bait.

anyone else game? lets show them Carolina boys somethin;)

So we see your 9 and raise you 2 1/2

Bring on them drummies and that nice cold one @ Howards....

Ryan Y
01-12-2008, 09:25 AM
Who's gonna let you Virginia guys know it's on?

You see, We can keep things quiet down this way between a handfull of people. We might have already been catching by the time you guys figure out whats going on.....We're apt to sneak accross that cedar island ferry and meet up with some other guys without being noticed. Only thing to give it away is the silence on the web after a few days....

But we'll let you know when the sandspike toss and leftover bait cooler shmag chug is going down....
:D

Anyhow...It will be good to see you guys this spring none-the-less.

I don't know about a "bunch" of PA yankees comin' down to participate, but remember I mentioned something about maybe going down to OBX in March? It'd be kinda fun to tag along even if we aren't "competing". I know for a fact that these guys can teach us a thing or two about drummin'!

Besides, it'd be fun to meet some of these guys off the board - and get in some spring fishing time. I have a big drum on my catch wish list for 2008.


if'n enough of ya PA guys get a mob together...we may have to split the divisions...

Thanks for the consideration Ns4D!

btw AC i got us a plan..... heres how this works out. we make sure we get down to ocracoke

1. raid the nc boys of all their food.
2. make sure that we leave kenny a frying pan, house autry and oil.
3. we'll win by default as kenny will have eaten all the fried mullet intended for bait.

BING BING BING... we'll win cause kenny'll eat NC's bait!:D

Put that beer down, Clay. You're not makin' much sense right now.

Of course we ain't got a chance.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news...and what makes it worse...I started this thread...due to lack of funds and the "almost" completion of our re-model...I have to "bow out" of this excursion.

This will be the first spring in about 8 years that I did not make it South in the Spring for the inaugural run...

Sad to say that after 4/3.....when the axe falls [ I am crossing every apendage I have, that it will not fall ] .....this weekend was my only shot.
Gotta say...shared and had great memories...and I hate to have not paid my respects and buried my toes one more time in the South beaches...

I apologize to all those that I currently had plans with.

Well, I was down Wed and Thursday with Bigg Foot and the wind was blowin, the sand was up, the sun was shining and the fish, oh my lord the fish. There were somewhere other than the south end of Ocracoke.

But, it was a great time. Cooked one more big breakfast on the beach and fed WhizKid and a young man, whose name I did not get.

Got to see the other FishHuntr, John M, a several others. So, it was worth the trip.

Hopefully it was not the last.

I have learned not to rely on any of the weather sights. They have been wrong 9 out of 10 of my last fishing trips.

Danny, remember the one trip we took last Spring that it was supposed to be sunny, warm temps and little wind?? It was cold, it rained, and the wind blew gale force.

Oh yeah, last year me and Bill headed to O'coke. It was the same weekend as the one we picked for this year April 3-6. Anyway Friday was beautiful. We woke up at 0430 on Saturday and the wind was howling at 40 and it snowed. We decided to pack it up and head home a day early. Went from 65 on Friday to 38 on Saturday.


I figure they would have a great bite this weekend and shut down on Wednesday 04/02.

I am not worried about the temp, I am more worried about the wind. Looks like a front is suposed to move in on Saturay night. Temps bottom out on Sunday. Should be an interesting ride on the ferry to Cedar Island on Sunday.
