Turkey day was a charter of brothers. My ritual this year was taking my two brothers and brother in law fishing. Challenging crew but Mike (brother in law) did it all, skunking the rest. Fished New Bern and pulled out 1 nice just under 7# rock and 1 trout. Fun AM then time to eat. All the families around the table – just what Thanksgiving and Christmas is all about.
Tommy Cowen has jumped in the lead with his 7.7# fish, knocking Mark out of the money for now. Lisa had to help make picture look good! Expect more fish weigh ins with cold weather coming in this coming weekend.
Had one of my friends that knows his trout catch a limit during NW blow. Nothing huge but a good limit for tough conditions – even share some for wife and I tonight.
Colder weather should push Rudee Inlet Va Beach large trout south. Watch for rock jetty to pick up or Get Started!
Live shrimp is over for me this year. I am heading out tomorrow for mud minnows with hopes of having them now through next fall. Mirrolures and DOA still great baits of my choice.
Continue thinking of any wants or needs for tackle, trolling motors, Power Poles, Costa Del Mars, hunting gear (no guns), camping gear, etc. that you are wanting but no rush. Henrys show coming up soon and I always take orders and share discounts.
Safe fishing and remember OUR KIDS
