    Portsmouth Island Roll Call

    Five others along with myself will be heading over on October 31st and staying for a long weekend. Just curious to know if any other Pier & Surf members will be there the same time.

    We have a crew of 4 going over on the 26th to the 29th I will be sure to give a full report on here. I will PM you with specific spots so not to spot burn on here. Things look like they are getting real good down there.

    I was over there the first two days it was open and the fishing was good then, plenty of slot drum for everyone it seemed. Didn't hear reports about anything bigger but hey I'll take a few slot drum any day. Good Luck!

    No permit is needed to drive on PI. Contact Morris Marina in Atlantic, NC for information (they own/run the ferry). It is an amazing place but be prepared, there are no roads or stores on the island, just a few cabins, mosquitoes that can carry small children away, and God's great landscape!

    Yall give em hell next week! I can't re book my trip this fall since we were going over last week during the close down, just got to much going on around the house. Pup bite has been off the hook there & I bet the bigguns will be chewing. Looking forward to seeing the reports,i'm heading to Hampstead this weekend to chase some backwater fish.
