Flounder stuff


MEDIA ADVISORY: Division of Marine Fisheries announces scoping period on southern flounder

MOREHEAD CITY – The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries will hold a public scoping period Dec. 4-18 to solicit public comments on potential management strategies for an upcoming amendment to the Southern Flounder Fishery Management Plan.

The primary management strategy for Amendment 3 is long-term sustainable harvest in the southern flounder fishery. The South Atlantic Southern Flounder Stock Assessment update (containing data through 2017) indicated the stock is overfished and overfishing is occurring.

Fisheries stakeholders can provide in-person comments at two scoping meetings that will be held:

Dec. 9 at 6 p.m.
N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries
Central District Office
5285 Highway 70 West, Morehead City

Dec. 17 at 6 p.m.
Dare County Government Complex
Commissioners Meeting Room
954 Marshall C. Collins Dr., Manteo

Beginning Dec. 4, comments can also be submitted through the division's website with an online form or by mail. A news release will be issued closer to the scoping period providing details on how the public can participate.

A scoping document outlining the potential management strategies can be found on the Southern Flounder Amendment Information Page.

TSA line


Right before he pats me down the TSA guy asks “which side is my stuff on the left or right?”

 I told him it was kind of all over both sides so be careful

He replied,  “no sir I meant which side is your carry on bag coming off the x ray machine the left or right"

my couple of days on the water

success with albie on the fly, trout and puppy drum for dinner.   Some of those little ones have finally made it to the dinner club, 18 1/2 and 19 inches.

Yesterday, quick trip before the blow to put a 3 man limit of grouper in the fridge and freezer, all over 12 pounds.......and a trout, no love with the albies but we saw a few.

Got trout?



Capt. Ashley and his momma do!

Back on the grid.

Everyone needs a little R and R.   The leaves are at their peak in Down East Maine, just wanted to confirmm that for you. 

some residual big drum are in the Neuse/Pamlico but the majority of the meat has left the building.    Albies, kings, trout in the creeks and at the beach, big drum in the ocean, good bottom fishing.  All looks good for the fall.

Greg's catch for the day


Tuesday, October 1, 2019

First and foremost, please extend my gratitude to all of your guides.  They truly made lasting impressions on our group.  As I look back on the 5 years we have done this trip, I am amazed at the number of people that your group has been able to put a fish of a lifetime in their lap for a photo op.  We had several first timers this year, and all of them walked away with a world class red drum catch and release.  One of our crew had never seen the saltwater, and to get on the boat in the morning, and come home with a personal double digit day is an incredible experience.  As good as the fishing can be, it can cause us to take for granted the amazing fishery at our door step in the Neuse/Pamlico, but it is hard to imagine another destination that has the quality and quantity of drum as that piece of water.  As always thank you for the one stop shopping.  From lodging and food, to multiple boats for multiple days, Down East made it happen yet again.  Thanks again bud, you guys are amazing.  I will reach out in the next few days to set up 2020.  Talk to you soon-RH







still getting them

on one of Justin's last trips he hooked 5 at one time on artificial lures........just saying.

Fishing remains pretty good for the meatheads, holding on to some double digit afternoons.

2020 calendar is looking very, very busy.   I know it's a long ways off, but please let me know when you want to fish next year so we can get you on the calendar.  Same for the Roanoke.

corkers and meatheads

Everyone seems to be getting what they need, but based on my observations, meatheads make better corkers than corkers make meatheads.   Nice that everyone is catching them. 

Got some openings this weekend with corkers or meatheads,  pick your poison and ring us up to finalize the details.

Excellent morning corking and the meatheads are getting them in the afternoon.  Scattered openings.   Get them while you can!
