Late July Update

imageimageimage

WOW – calm winds and a push of new water in the Neuse! Also good signs of bait too. Lets look for a good week/weekend.

Tarpon tournament this weekend may be tough – rough weather has hindered scouting and fresh spot and croaker are at a premium, not much around to be bought.

I have not heard much on old drum this week – rough weather with low water level. If weather hold we may see some action this weekend and I am planning on having the freshest mullet available though the season. If I don’t have any, I have a good friend to send you to to fill your cooler.  Please call me to order yours. Most use 20/25# a trip. I also have a good supply of chum and lupton rigs. 

My Wendell family did well this past weekend on some large black drum. Ryan claims to have caught both larger drum weighing in at 6-7# each.

Staff Sergeant Mike finally got what he has been chasing – a nice 26’ slot drum to go along with some others. He is now ready for the Old Man and I have promised to get him there too.

Trout, flounder and puppy drum have been caught in various areas in the Neuse. Most are being caught on live bait but your artificial lures work too.

I will be taking eating shrimp and mullet orders through the rest of the summer. I guarantee freshness on anything I carry.

Keeping live mud minnows around that are producing flounder, drum and trout.

Big drum trips available and can also be scheduled. I prefer late afternoon returning around dark. Call for details. 

Please try to support the Jimmy Arthur Memorial Fishing Tournament set for August 7 with all proceeds going to his 3 girls. If you don’t fish, come get some good BBQ plates. Tickets are available for plates Saturday the 7th with all these proceeds going to girls as well. Let me know if you need tickets, applications or just want to donate to the girls.

I am still waiting on Motor Guide trolling motor authorized service center approval. Trying to give Motor Guide owners another option for repairs. I can also assist you with your Motor Guide, Minn Kota and Power Pole purchases at my discount pricing as well as installs. 

Safe fishing and remember OUR KIDS

Late July Report

imageimageimageimage

This has been the hottest – slowest stretch this summer. Winding too!

Tarpon sighting and hook-up has been limited with weather. Need some lazy days to get it going.

My guy Michael took his the grudge match with the only fish 2 nice fish; 5.5 citation trout and an upper slot drum to beat out 3 other guys.

Ms Pace was in yet again with a hopeful citation getting only a picture post – keep going girl.

And let’s not leave out Uplander ED, a bass fisherman turn local fisherman. He and wife have been staying on Dawson Creek for an extended vacation. He asked me about local fishing and “aint skeered” to cross river in his bass boat to Turnagan Bay area.  He has caught drum flounder and trout showing off these 2, a 24 and 28”er. He loved my mud minnows but got it handed to him Wednesday coming back across river. He’s heading home soon but is planning a return trip to fish Jimmy’s Tournament.

Myself, Gary Dubiel and Tim Ellis made a trip to tag some trout but scratched out on trout. We should have been after pups and flounder. Covered a enormous area with a lot of casting but no trout.

The trout and upper slot drum that we were on a couple of weeks ago have moved – maybe to deeper/cooler water.

Mud Minnows have been my bait of choice of late over rubber!

Latest news is Ole Drum – there have been several confirmed catches this week – here we go. Will be keeping a good supply of chum and lupton rigs and can fill your fresh mullet orders if called in advance. Also let me re-line your reels with fresh line to handle this monsters. Mono or braid available.

Shrimp are getting larger (20 count) and I am taking orders now for eating shrimp. Prices are not currently escalating as expected.

Big drum trips available and can also be scheduled. I prefer late afternoon returning around dark. Call for details.

4th July Update

imageimageimagejimmy_app.doc

Hope all had a safe and fun 4th – appeared that all did around Minnesott Beach. Saw a lot of families sharing weekend together.

It’s still the same story – the best fishing near the sound. Trout drum, flounder & spanish. Tarpon have been spotted with several being stuck this weekend.

Michael took his lady Julie on a trip this weekend and put her on 2 nice fish; 4.25 trout and 25 inch drum plus more fish at less size.

Michael also took me out on his new boat and we had a good day. Several drum in slot range with 2 at top of slot weighing in at just under 14# for both. Would have done well if in a tournament! Also had a couple 19-20” trout and 1 nice flounder, tagging one trout for tagger Tim and keeping other due to hook depth. Keep your eyes open for tags to support his doctorate program and receive a really nice hat or $100 for a red tag. It was a brutal day after wind died out and green heads took over – hot and painful. Extreme Fishing at its best. Carry loads of 40% deet stuff will help!!!!!

Again – all these came on my Mud Minnows!

Shrimp should start to get larger and I am still taking orders now for eating shrimp as they start being caught. I will still discount my price even with rising cost.

Keeping live mud minnows around that are producing flounder, drum and trout.

If you would like opportunity to get out and catch some of these slot drum or trout, give me a call. My rates are available on my site under charter services link. Big drum trips coming up can also be scheduled but this current upper slot action on light tackle ranks high.

I am also planning on being a NC Wildlife License Agent in August taking care of all your hunting/fishing license needs as well as boat registration and renewals. Been putting that off for 3 years but is need more locally now with Mr Alfred Cahoons retirement.
