Special guest

Sorry for the slack reports the last week, but I've had a special guest in town, Capt. James from the Dragin Fly came up for a few days of drum fishing.  We also hit that wahoo bite on the Bill Collector with Capt. Steven and Wade.   After putting a half dozen wahoos in the box, we went and showed James a nice Atlantic sail.  Beautiful day, just like Costa Rica, slick calm and the fish were biting.   This time of year is a great time to get offshore.  Give us a ring and we'll make sure that you get connected.

James got into the drum fishing and helped me with a few trips, he got pretty good at chunking mullet chunks.

The drum bite continues, consistent double digit days.  I imagine things are going to slow a bit after this upcoming full moon, with a lot of fish that have spawned out and heading to the ocean.  Surprisenly enough, there are still a lot of fish that are not done spawning and there should be good drum fishing well into October.   With the light tackle stuff firing off, there are going to be some great days of fishing on the Neuse/Pamlico through the fall.....including some big drum, it's not too late.
