  1. you can drive where you want to on ocracoke now except for the permanent closures
  2. yes....eat yourself a striper. i fully support your lunch. just try to promote the idea of not killing the largest and oldest of the species.....there are always going to be more 30 inch fish than 50 inch fish for natural reasons. the gene pool that makes the largest and smartest needs to be looked out for. call me a fish hugger....i could care less....i like the idea of big fish down the line for my grandkids to catch.
  3. actually......there would be no regard for the "40inch fish cast after cast for hours".....those annoying 1000 people that you speak of are killing 99% of the stripers that are being caught. and as your avatar suggests, you are on the same team. the big ones are the breeders with the good genes....you want them to live and die a natural death. eat yourself a 28 inch fish every once in awhile. if your state regulated the slaughter of the breeders of that species then i guarantee you that there would only be a few fishermen on those rocks instead of the dozens in the line you see in that pic. the big red drum that are being caught and released in nc are consistently at larger sizes since the slot size popped up. 20 yrs ago a 45 inch fish was a big deal....now we catch 50's all the time. try not killing EVERY striper for 15 yrs or so and watch the sizes and the numbers jump for your kids. and lets talk drum rigs....
  4. Ever weigh a hatteras 6 or 8? They are always over. And full agreement .... if 8 aint holding i am in the camper
  5. fish finder should be on the bite leader ...not the shock leader.... i should say that a little different... MY fishfinder is on my bite, not my shock......if you are only using a shock then thats where your fishfinder goes... you see the random 3 way out there...but its overkill and not even going to give you the same amount of fish on the beach as a slider
  6. some people do....
  7. no real reason other than bait presentation under water ....in my mind the rig swims better with the loop at the crimp than it would with a knot....may not be true but it seems like it.
  8. 10/0 mustad demon perfect circle 100lb mono for the snell... no clip.. fishfinder is a must.. 3 ft 100lb bite leader... 25ft 50lb shock leader.. 20lb pro spec chrome
  9. heads are ok drum bait
  10. pinfish
  11. pics from today show a really large bar that needs to figure out what it wants to do...i am kinda cool with it connecting and being able to drive over but if that aint happened all summmer blowing sw most of the time i dont see it happening before drum time which is starting pretty much in the next couple weeks...but if a storm big enough to make the bar go away comes through its gonna blow away more than just the bar and all those cars look crazy....but it is a holiday....
  12. there are puppy drum around now on the ocean side....big drum are on the soundside. but starting about the first of october until early december is the prime time for big drum off the beach
