Hot June Update

The weather is still tough on the Neuse. I ran a couple of trips with some success, even without the weather man’s help.

Friday’s trip with Ralph and his wife Jackie was shortened due to severe storms popping up on us. Prior to that we had several small trout and flounder a lot with 1 nice slot drum. I have to say, Ralph is the man, he brought his own bait casters in a stiff wind and managed to catch several trout on jigs with minimal birds nesting. But, Jackie put it on him with the slot drum!!!!

Saturday’s trip was an educational trip teaching Roberts’ children, Emily and Evan, how to cast and fish. It was Emily’s Birthday trip at 8 years old. She managed to be the star catching a pin fish, flounder, and a trout. Couldn’t get picture of her and trout, scared her terribly. Evan did finally catch a croaker. His coach, Dad, was not as lucky as the Mom and daughter!!!! Went in search of drum to complete Emily’s slam but never hooked up. I did go back to my spot after dropping them off and landing 2, 20+ inch drum. I knew they were there. The both learned the basics of casting spinning rods and will get nothing but better with more practice.

Flounder have continued to be the main stay along the river. A lot of small fish with mixed keepers (15”). Baits of choice are mud and mullet minnows with some using gulp and deep creek baits on jigs.

I am posting my rough draft with final proof to follow soon of my new line of Denali microfiber polyester shirts like the DOA you see me wearing. They are so cool and have a 50 UV protection rating. Not hot at all. I will have my Minnesott Marvin and KneEDeeP Custom Charters on it along with a few phrases. If you would like one, let me know size and I will place in order. If I get enough orders I can sell for $32.95 or if not $39.95. Well worth the money.

Don’t forget all the other gear I carry and install at discounted prices.

My charters are picking up targeting these fish and I Guarantee FUN. Look for possible early drum trips too. Conditions are right and the way this summer is going anything’s possible. Call me to get booked.

Be Safe on the water.
