anyone still here?
I still check here from time to time. I just returned from Hatteras last week. Fished Wednesday morning at the point, perfect conditions to start. Had a SW wind blowing across point with an incoming tide. Got on beach around 6:30, put a fresh spot head on and within about 15 minutes, Hooked up!!! 33 inch yearling drum on the beach after about 10 minute fight. After that wind shifted from NE at about 20-25 MPH, and that was the last bite I had all day.Will not make back down this fall due to a newborn at the house, but should probably be back to Portsmouth in May.
Congratulations fishmedic on the fish and the baby. We are heading to PI at the end of Oct. hoping for a good trip. I have been reading on the Drumwagon site that the rangers are on their game. Hope they don't give us too much crap.
Maybe we'll run into ya in may.
Surf fisher, when you heading over?
Are either of you members of the PI Fishing pages?
Rick. Going to Topsail Island next week for a long weekend,I"ll give u a fishing report later..... Hope you have a great trip to PI.... shoot me some fishing reports.....
You know it!
JUst spent a good week on the island with the camper. Fished s point area all week during the day was a little crowded but evening I had the place to myself. No problem with catching bait all week plenty on the back side. Caught plenty of blues all week all the under slot pups you wanted to catch & had one day where we got slot pups for our limit. Back side had plenty of flounder but never got a keeper & some decent size sharks cruising the shore with the bait fish. Got a citation drum Thurs night at 45in & lost another that felt even bigger just from the way it was fighting. As quick as the bite started it died but just happend to have bait in the water at the right time.
No problems from the rangers never got checked only saw them twice the whole week but other people get checked though. All ready looking forward to next year if all works out will be back on the island Memorial weekend. Goodluck to those going in the next few weeks should be some awesome fishing.
Thanks for the report LONGGONE...... Sounds like a great trip.......
