Drum Update

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

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

I spent a week away with wife, daughter and grandson leaving operation in good hands with JB. Had some good reports of flounder, slot and old drum. Did a short pier fishing trip with only really small sea mullets. Hope the make their adulthood running from sharks.

Michael is working on the first NC Fisheries Slam citation. He has a 24” release trout and added a 41” drum but just a real nice catch of flounder. Citation flounder is his mission now and I feel assured he will get it.

One of my customers put his kids on some nice drum – great to see kids enjoying the best sport around!!! Good job Hunter.

My man JB tried his had at showing people how to fish and stuck their first Old Drum.

The word is flounder and a lot of small ones. There are a few legals in the mix. Puppy and slot drum still the best action with a mixed in trout. Its hot so be careful out there – drink plenty of water.

Old drum this weelowed a little this week and still a little early but don’t think you cant stick one. Took my grandson Monday and had 1 on he lost along with rays. Should continue to inprove. Ive had reports of huge schools around inlets and where are they coming to! I have landed a new source for 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, 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. 

The Jimmy Arthur Memorial Fishing Tournament was a huge success. There were 37 adult and 13 jr anglers fishing hard in the heat for a memorable trophy in one of the 3 categories; speckled trout, drum and flounder. There were reports of a lot of small fish caught with a total of 13 weighed in. Results of the adult categories are:  Trout – 1st @ 3.28 lb Pete Roach, 2nd @ 1.62 lb Doug White, 3rd @1.50 lb Owen Lupton III / Drum - 1st @ 5.12 lb George Wiggins, 2nd @ 4.64 lb Pete Roach, 3rd @4.44 lb Michael Carawan / Flounder - 1st @ 1.86 lb Owen Lupton III, 2nd @ 1.80 lb Ricky Willis, 3rd @1.58 lb Doug White. Results for the jr anglers are:  Flounder - 1st @ 1.48 lb Payton Chrome, Drum - 1st @ 3.44 lb Samantha Salter with the big winner of the Trout trophy to the young lady that couldn’t fish with her dad; April Arthur.

On top of all the fishing, approximately 500 BBQ (cooked by Ed Dixon, JB Brigman and Chad Levy) plates were sold at the tournament site of Pamlico County Moose Lodge.
