Brandon?

 Yup, Brandon.  One of the meat head proteges we are bringing along.   He don't need much help. 


George

Brandon’s a great guide, thanks again for a great trip.

Yes, meatheads can catch them on corks

 They must have been thick. 

3 on the corks and one on the rattletrap

The afternoon consisted of popping shrimp heads instead of popping corks 



Even Bobby caught one




George, 
I just want to say thank you again for the trip this past Friday.  We had a blast, everyone caught a fish (even Bobby), and more importantly we had a great time.  Its something we look forward to every year.  

 If you have it open, could you pencil us in for the same Friday, Sept 16th of next year?

   Also, I just wanted to thank you again for the extra bait you gave us.  After sleeping in on Saturday morning, we ran the ditch down to Jones Bay  and made quick work on a pretty limit of slots and a couple dozen rat reds while beating the banks like you showed us last year.  Also ended up with with a big trout and a really big flounder that we released in accordance with NC rules and regulations.  There was a lot of bait just offshore of us, but we didnt try to fish any of it.

 Just wanted to thank you again for you hard work and hospitality.  

 Sincerely, 

CW

my fishing

 kind of sucked as I was out looking for unicorns on that slick calm day we had.......found none. 

Everyone else who is not as hard headed squeeked out a decent day. 

This nor'easter put the meatheads back at what they do best wtih more double digit days. 

Capt. Blake's fishing

Thanks for putting these guys on some big drum.  Blake was awesome!!!!!  ----BT

No Nighttime pics

 If you are good enough to catch 'em in the daytime, you don't need to be a Vampire. 

Couple days with Justin






 Justin is not a trout fisherman, but if they are 28 or 29 inches long and big enough to eat a drum rig, they are in trouble.    Get the net quick when they've got a yellow mouth!

report or lack thereof

I'm sorry, I've been up in the hills since coming down to harrass the tarpon in July and very slack on passing along the fishing reports 

I am about to fix that problem. 

I climbed down out of the hills this week and poked my head out in the river, caught another tarpon and XX drum by 3 in the afternoon.    Heck with drum fishing at night.

Pics to follow

 I'll get some pics, but pretty epic few days on the Pamlico Sound before heading back to the hills to beat the heat and check on the tomatoes. 

Day 1 we did what we came down to do, caught a tarpon and jumped another off. 

Day 2 We caught another tarpon

Day 3 We saw none but saved the day on one stop to try to catch our limit of pups for dinner.   After about 45 minutes of fishing 6 25/26 inch pups were going home with us along with 3 trout, one of them was almost 30 inches long. 

Day 4 We should have been tarpon fishing......we listened to Tom Cat catch one and jump another off but opted for topwater trout, more of those 25/26 inch pups and about 20 non existent flounder, half of those would have been really nice keepers.

Tarpons

 Man that is one of my favorite things to do and I'm glad that I came down to the coast to do it.  

Caught one yesterday and one today.

For example

 I know that A LOT of TARPON have showed.   Like the good old days.

I was considering coming out of the hills this weekend until I saw the weather report 

But I still keep in the loop

 and we are booking trips for the Down East Guides. 


The last post should have been posted at

That's the other job keeping me off the water.

Light tackle fishing is epic

 Trout, pups and catch and release flounder.   

I know it sounds crazy having to release flounder, but that is just part of the crazy world we live in nowadays.

On the NC front

 light tackle puppy drum fishing is excellent. 

Got 'em of all different sizes, including the big 'uns 

Oh, sorry for that last report......that was from the Dragin Fly

May 29

Slow fishing still 5 yellow fin tuna and 2 sailfish today hoping for a better day tomorrow
