Thursday, November 13, 2008    The Old-Timers were out in force yesterday as Virginia Mullets, Red and Black Drum of nice size were caught. Today, fishermen were upset with the heavy rains that fell this morning. 3 inches or more filled one local gentlemen's garden rain gage. Somehow this event had the visitors saying it changed the flow of the ocean. Yep! That will make our report as we hear it. Regarding Tuesday's Pompano, a different local reported similar specs on what we reported.  Stay Tuned!     Gasoline $2.24-2.34 & up  for regular.  Tomorrow's tides  Hi 7:48 am 8:07 pm   Low 1:03 am 2:12 pm  

Tuesday, November 11, 2008    Special Thanks and Love on this 90th anniversary of Veterans Day! Sunday was a slow day regarding fishing reports. Monday morning, a gentleman made an Ice stopped for the six cooler loads of large Spots he and his seven-member family caught over the weekend. These folks were going home to freeze fish to help out on this winter's grocery bills. (Plus fish are delicious).     The town's Kayaker capsized in 2 feet of water. He's okay other than a dampened spirit and a rod or two needing some TLC.   This morning, reports continue to come in regarding the Long Fall Virginia Mullets.      Now for the Big-Big Story!! ==>    "Banquette" sized Pompano caught somewhere close to the town's south-end emergency beach access crossover. What's a Banquette sized you ask? Banquette size is a fish so big that you could feed a good size class reunion. When I ask the local fisherman, who knows his local fish, he assured me this was not an African Pompano. He reported to me something along this line, "This was a yellow belly Pompano, seven or eight inches thick, 18 inches tall and just under one yard long." I'm sure this will make the paper this week. The event inspired the fisherman to drop what he was doing, go get wife, their fishing equipment ,go back and commence fishing.     Around here, gas company's have giving up another dime on the gallon!    Stay Tuned!     Gasoline $2.26-2.35 & up  for regular.  Tomorrow's tides  Hi 6:09 am 6:27 pm   Low --:-- am 12:29 pm  

 Saturday, November 8, 2008    Long Virginia Mullets, Croakers and Black Drum were the main catches this past week. Late yesterday afternoon, kayaker and his mate reported they enjoyed fishing the surf and offshore. Mud Minnows worked well catching Flounder, yet many were too small to keep. Latter on, a UNC-W student inquired about the Kayak and its functionality with the ocean. Best way to explain is for a free demo. Once past the breakers and out where the water's dept is past 10 feet, these two were accompanied by several Dolphins who were just as excited about the water as they were.     Stay Tuned!     Gasoline $2.37-2.39 & up  for regular.  Tomorrow's tides  Hi 3:45 am 4:01 pm   Low 9:51 am 10:00 pm  

Friday, November 7, 2008    Springtime weather is still with us. Our Air Conditioner came on around 10:00 am. Neighbor and his friend caught several large Virginia Mullets  on surf last night. Flies have returned which to me is odd for this time of year. It's official now, North Carolina is now a "blue state" regarding in the president, a new senator, governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and many others elected this past Tuesday.

Back Drum, "eating size", are running 10 to 21 inches in length. Many are sized over 18 inches. Virginia Mullet count has picked up, but are falling short of past fishing season's numbers. One fisherman reported he saw a fellow on the beach pull in 5 very long Virginia Mullets  two at a time in just under 10 minutes. After that, everything halted until after sunset, then the Blues came in.        Other news, gas prices have dropped another dime. A radio station reported this morning that more than 40% of the registered voters in North Carolina have completed early voting.   I'm going to "cast" my wish for a winner, and that's any nice size eating fish!    Stay Tuned!     Gasoline $2.44- 2.48 & up  for regular.  Tomorrow's tides  Hi 11:33 am 11:59 pm   Low 4:44 am 6:06 pm
