Ole Drum have been caught in good numbers and huge sizes this past weekend for those in rocking and rolling. Not all spots producing best – have to move around as fish do. Bait situation has been tough with limited mullet available – need to plan ahead. Large menhaden have been far scattered too. SSGT Bennett has been catch bunches of slot drum and now has hit on the Ole Drum. Lisa Hodges got her first drum along with sons 2 slots. Just gotta go get,em. Now that Chris has finally graduated from college and is having to work for a living – he still gets to fish. He had a captain in a bigger boat haul him around last weekend landing numerous ole drum and providing us some better looking pictures than myself!!! Go girls.
Headed out Monday to try my luck again w/ my man Michael – fished 3 spots and went 4 for 6 w/ one huge ray before 7pm – moved to one other place I wanted to try at dark and ended up with one huge ray and a 47 incher. Good day in anyone’s eyes. Michael is heading back out today – a lot younger than me, I’m tired.
One of my customers put his kids on some nice drum – great to see kids enjoying the best sport around!!! Good job Hunter.
Weather looks ok for this coming weekend if we can get Earl out of the way so call if I can help you.
Please call me to order your mullets. Most use 20/25# a trip. I also have a good supply of chum, Penn Slammer Combos and lupton rigs.
Big drum trips available and can also be scheduled. I prefer late afternoon returning around dark. Call for details.
There is another event I am promoting that benefits Southeast Pamlico Volunteer Fire Dept. It is Teach’s Cove Kayak Fishing Tournament. Yes – no power boats allowed. Huston Wallace is the creator and chairman of this event and has been putting a lot of effort in this benefit as part of a high school project. I am glad to have been asked to be the weigh master for his event. I have applications in my shop or you can get from his website http://web.me.com/ebwjrw/tctournament.com/Welcome.html If you don’t fish from kayak or canoe then tell someone who does or I know he will gladly accept donations as well. Lets all support this young mans effort.
Want to also make a hit for our Pamlico County Shrine Club Trout Tournament coming up Oct. 23rd. It will be another fun event with loads of prizes and cash. There is a conflict that has just come to my knowledge. This being our 3rd year – now CCA is scheduling on our same day an Inside/Out Event. Hope all that have supported us will continue and we are growing – as anyone who has fished it on the fun and prizes. After this year 50% of proceeds from your entries and sponsors donation will go to the Shriners Childrens Hospitals; which I am proud to say, my grandson is now a shriner child and patient there.
I am up and running now selling Ncwildlife hunting/fishing license and boater registrations. Let me know if I can help you with yours. I am also going to take orders for cases of shot gun shells and rifle bullets. Not going to stock in shop but can have if available in 2 days at as always – my discount pricing.
Safe fishing and remember OUR KIDS
