    Looking to head to the cabins on Portsmouth at the end of April. Will spring run have started? I realize a good amount is determined by the temperature changes. What’s the sound side like? Used to fishing Rodanthe/Avon and S. Nags Head. Thanks, I know it’s a little early, but it’s 20...

  7. Inshore Saltwater Fishing
    Ok, might have posted this before but can’t remember. When surf fishing, casting with a sliding weight (Carolina rig) and chunk of bait I’ve had issues with the two separating mid-air and reducing distance. Is that due to my casting technique and not getting enough whip or just general...

    Hi guys, I have been seeing a lot of mullets on the surf pretty close (within 40 feet) and I would like to catch them on my surf rod. I don't have a cast net so I'm pretty much stuck with my rod. Mullets seems to concentrate on the surface and I assume them to be top water feeders. Should I...

    It's been a while since I bought a reel for surf fishing, so I'd figured I'd ask the experts, or at least the ones using them more than me. I have an old Diawa 7000C and Penn 850SS, but would like to add another one to the arsenal. I've never used a conventional one, not gonna lie, they scare...

    OK I know your all tired of the questions from the newbs, but my friend, the search button, is a coming up a little short. Down fishing the Alabama Gulf Coast, I seem to be ably to catch the ladyfish by the dozens some days and buying bait can be expensive. So after searching google the ladyfish...

    OK this is a 2 parter: 1. What lures to fish in the surf and how? Also, would some details on rigging them to your leader as well. (Knots, Weights, Etc.) 2. Looking to add 2nd reel and rod to the stockpile for lures and, or 2nd bottom. Probably stay with spinning gear as I'm pretty new to...

    Hey everyone thought I'd share some pics and fun I had with you all. Surf fishing in Gulf Shores tonight and came up with a nice Red Fish or Red Drum I do believe, not positive since it had no spot and looked just a hair different. Tell me what you all think. Also added a couple of my other...

Came back with...
