Oh Frisco was not always "laidback".... I can remember rigs all the way around the end from cleaning table on one side of pier to cleaning table on the other side,as many as 60plus,with about that many kings decked..june?no work started but it will open in june??Hope so!That would be sweet!I was there last in 04.back then there was talks of extending the pier back to how it was back in the day.Did that ever happen?All the same when we were there in june 04 the kings were there!I helped a kid catch a nice cobia on a bottom rig he set out for cobia.we had a king come out of the water with my bluefish on his head(didnt hookem).The day before the first two of the year were caught. The water that day at low tide couldnt have been 10 feet! who cares though when the fish are there.we gave up a 1/2 weeks hotel stay(prepaid) at longbeach because the pier there was swamped.if a king was on it would be miserable.maybe 45 rigs out.no fun in my book.frisco is laid back
Not Chris,but yes back when I fished it for kings it was longer... We caught plenty of kings and cobes back then (mid 70's late 80's).. We caught kings from May thru Nov,sometimes as early as April.. It has changed since,but there are kings and cobes to be had and June is a good time to try...Chris,
Did the pier go out farther years back?A local told me that it did.On google earth you can see the sandbar under water.pretty neat.I grew up in n.myrtle beach and we caught kings from august to october.the spring run was a waste of time with very few kings caught and we never ever saw cobia.loved the old long beach pier.sad to see it go.oceancrest catches lots of kings but after learning first hand how they decide for you where your rig will go turnned me away.the crowd is crazy too.back in 03 or 02 i went there to fish.they drew pingpong balls from a machine to determine where you got to set out your rig.i was first there and i had to fish off of the side of the pier because of my drawing number.there were only 6 of us fishing and 3 wqere on top of each other and the rest of us were on the side.i like the first come first choice deal myself but there are some fine folks at the pier no doubt.its a good pier.with the uncertainty of frisco we may just fish yaupon pier.always can count on trout with live shrimp at all oakisland piers and flounder.
does frisco normally do well on kings and cobia in june?i loved my day at frisco!
I dont think that the live shrimp on a cork will hold up in the currents, At least I havent had any luck with that. IT works great in the sound or other calm areas, but I havent had much luck anywhere with a decent current. just my .02thanks for your reply drum dum and masterbaiter!!! hahahahaha!i love those names.Let me tell you guys what im thinking and tell me if its worth a hoot or not(please ofcourse!)
weather permitting i would like to let momma sit on the beach and chill while i take the yak off the beach somewhere near frisco.thought about anchoring and balloning a blue or pogey.were talking june9-16 time frame.worth a try or a waste?maybe slow troll abit.
also is it worth a hoot to try for trout with live shrimp on a cork in that area.Jill on the hill wants to chill on the beach while i fish.she wants to sling bait while i yak.shrimp on the bottom or something like that for whitting..opps! i mean sea mullet!never fished for trout or flounder there so i didnt know if it was worth it.
then there is ole mother nature!! may be to rough to yak!one last thing and ill shut up! when i was there in june 04 there was already a school or two of menhaden,do they normally come through near frisco then? seemed early to me.
