And on the other side on the Dragin Fly

For me it was albies and some really, really good, up close and personal sight casting red drum in the surf. Very neat to watch them eat the fly from the tower.
Up the river or at the coast, give us a ring to get out on the water in NC.

Cast and Blast
The up front costs of leasing land, building and brushing blinds, preparing decoys, boats and dogs.....or hiring a guide is expensive. Unfortunately there were too many customers who did not "get it". They felt entitled to kill and expected to kill ducks just because they spent their money on a guide.
On the other hand, there were other customers who were just happy to be there. Tickled to death to watch the sunrise over decoys instead of through a windshield on the way to work. If they shot their gun great, but if they didn't, they'd wipe it off and put it back in the case until next time. The oysters were good, great steak sandwich and it was cool to cast at a striper or trout on the way home. Those are the people that I miss spending time with. No December tournaments or trips to the Galapagos planned this year, so I'll be around and thought that I may dabble in it a bit.

How can it be so good, then be so bad
Capt. Joe Ward was on a striper/trout trip up the river, fishing places that he has been killing them over the past few days, but for whatever reason they were not chewing yesterday. Conditions were slick calm with no current, maybe it was too calm.....but that should be perfect for fishing the albies and big spanish at the coast. It's been on fire there as well. Joe was ready to load up the boat and head to the beach when he got a call from one of the guides fishing for albies at the Cape.
The report from the Cape was just as gloomy, not a fin was stirring and only two albies caught by the entire fleet. They were blaming it on the east wind.
Who knows? Sometimes you can go to the best place in the world at the best time to be there and sometimes it's still fishing. I'm on the way to Charlotte to talk with the fishing club up there tonight and will be splashing the Parker tomorrow.......

A lot hotter than my snook fishing from the beach today.....although we did catch some nice mullets for bait.

Drum Tag Returns
Sept. 5 in West Bay off Cedar Island we recaptured a tagged drum that measured 28 inches total length.....too big to keep so he was released with the tag in tact. This "yearling" was tagged when it was less than 12 inches long off of Dawson Creek in the Neuse River on Sept. 5, 2012, exactly two years to the day.
Links to some Alaska video from this summer....
Big Drum still around
