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.

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. 

We are on for the Jimmy Arthur Memorial Fishing Tournament set for August 7 with all proceeds going to his 3 girls. It is going to be flounder, trout and drum with trophies for 3 largest in each category. There is also a jr angler category with trophies for largest of each category. Rule #1 is “It will be a fun annual event to help the 3 girls he so dearly loved”. Contact me for info and please come help and have fun. You can fish from boat, land or pier. Cost is $50 and &25 for jr anglers under 16. All event will be out of Pamlico County Moose Lodge. Donations also accepted. Let me know if you need any additional info – flyers will be out next week in all local merchants in 4 county area. We also are selling BBQ plate tickets for 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 also going to be carrying a new boat hull cleaner that you will want to have – suppose to be the best – more to follow.

I should be set up as a NC Wildlife License Agent in August taking care of all your hunting/fishing license needs as well as boat registration and renewals. School scheduled for Aug 3rd if I can pass! Been a longtime since I was in school. 

For anyone looking for a place to rent for a vacation in Pamlico County – I have the opportunity to offer a friends house that has 2 bdrm/1bath on Dawson Creek with private pier. Call me and I will hook you up with the owners.

Safe fishing and remember OUR KIDS
