Time to Think Big Drum
We finally got some favorable wind but storms have plagued the afternoons. After several hot hours of AM fishing, it’s OK.
Fishing has been good with numbers of slams being caught, just not legal size. You can have a lot of fun and manage a meal if you work at it.
I had a repeat client from last year out for mixed bag Friday and weather was great in the AM. Jackie and Ralph got to see the whole down river side of the Neuse. We fished from Raccoon Island all the way back to Oriental and caught fish everywhere we stopped, No large fish to brag about but a fun trip cut short by our now tropical storms in PM.
We are all biting at the bit for Old Drum. I am going to try and stick a few this week to jump start everybody. I know they are here from reports I have been getting; maybe not real thick but bet I can catch some. Bait is the issue. If you got plans to go I need you to call me in advance so I can have you fresh mullet here for you. AS every year, if you order you are obligated to pay and I am obligated to have you ready to go. Also have plenty of Lupton Rigs, chum, Penn/Okuma combos and large drum nets in stock.
Drum trips are already booking up so call if you want to go. I do 5-6 hour morning or afternoon trips as well as full day on my 23 Mako capable of fishing 3 safely and comfortably.
Also have some 2x and xl of my new ss shirts in and working on UVs as well. Will be ordering more ts soon to cover all sizes
Stay safe and respectful on the water.
