check out red drum tackle here's the report for today...wooohooo:fishing::


There has never been a bite of big swordfish like it was today on Cape Point. Everybody was casting 2# whole squid with night sticks attached and almost every cast was a bite. The mako's were just a pain in the ass because you just could not hardly catch a sword because of the pest. Best results were done by Wheat who had spooled a big old Daiwa with 150# braid and was really holding on to a nice one.

While Dan was off island and the rest of us doing something else the report is that at dark thirty the bite was intensifying. Every single cast was a 200 to 500 pound sword. I only stock three flying gaffs and they are gone. I just can't believe it....

Bye and out to the point we all go,

An incorrect fishin' report on the Scarlet Carp Board, who'd thunk it.

guys - the pic was photshopped! that's the same pic poster had holding a citation drum last sept when we fished with him -- it was all in fun -- comic relief to make ppl laugh when they have this injunction thing hanging over em -- if you read the commentary on the pic, he said he was headed home thru the 'ocracoke tunnel'-LOL:D
the whole thing was tongue in cheek

Do they often exaggerate in their fishing reports? Obviously it is in their best interest to do so. I am not suggesting they do but I was in Hatteras last October and some of their daily fishing reports told a different story than what I saw myself.

I knew my horses were acting up the other day when I was out there, rearing and carrying on when I was trying to get them in the water... They knew they were going to get poked by swordfish. I call it swordfishitis now, next thing you know the giant squid will be biting hopkins again...
