Hey guys!!!!!!!!!!!! YAAHHOOOO!!!!!!!!!! :eek::eek::beer::D:D

I'll keep it short and sweet. Last night the water was almost slick calm, and not a drum fisherman to be seen. Me and a few buddies came back from drinkin a couple cold ones up the beach watching football and decided to fish.

I got my first big one around 1 a.m. Then my buddy got his first big one less than 10 minutes after that. It was a fantastic night. Thank you guys for all of your tips and advice, it has helped alot. Been a long road since February moving to Buxton, but all was worth it last night.



Without further ado..


Fish was released unharmed and swam away fine. I filled out my citation! :D

Nice fish Mike! Still looking for my first one larger than a pup. Congrats!!! Is the smile because of the fish or the "cold ones?" Probably a little of both. Very nice fish!

Haha Jeep the smile was definately a combination of both. We didn't expect to actually find anything more than sharks/rays and a good time. We weren't in the "zone" for that fish when it came. Couldn't ask for a better time though. There usual crowd of people was non existant, so didn't have to worry about lines, an audience, etc. Me and my 2 buds were the only people out there. Craziest thing was after me catching my first one, my buddy caught his first one. I couldn't have asked for it to happen any other way... Good times,, good friends,, all to ourselves, fish of a lifetime and brews a-flowin. Thats why I love fishing!!
