  1. If the Arctic Blast doesn’t beat me, I’m going to make a last ditch run to the coast- I’m in NC: has anyone tried a fly version of the traditional popping cork setup, say a shrimp pattern hanging tandem off a crease fly or gurgler? There’s apparently still a decent speckled trout bite going on. Thanks!
  2. So my brothers surprised my dad (and myself) with a trip to Louisiana today for an April fishing trip in the Bayou! My dad blew us out of the water with this 27 pound beauty!!!
  3. Greetings everyone! Now that things are opening back up, I'm heading down to OBX for an extended weekend (wife's birthday). Pops bought a house in southern Nags Head a little over a year ago, so that will be my base of operations. This will be my first attempt at surf fishing. I've been through a lot of posts and articles, bought some gear (that will be staying at the house for many future uses), and would like your tips and thoughts! Time frame: June 4th late pm through June 9th am Luckily, this will give me a outstanding opportunity to catch the spring tide (if I can stay up late enough) and the next very low tide around 2pm. Scouting out where the 1st and 2nd troughs are as well as cuts. I bought two 9' X-Heavy Fast action rods w/ 7000 series spinners, one for me and one for my father in-law. Planning on doing almost matching setups, middle of the road, soaking bait and learning the ropes. Not worried about catching anything in particular. Main setup: 20# mono w/ 50# shock leader, two hook bottom rig w/ 4 oz pyramid and 4/0 circle hooks. Second setup: 17# mono w/ 40# shock leader, two hook bottom rig w 2 or 3 oz pyramid and 3/0 circle hooks. Do the hook sizes and weights seem middle of the road? I'm worried they might be on the big end considering the time of year. Does this seem like a waste (too close together)? should I stick with one setup and have the other be something "more different", like fish finder rig or much lighter/heavier setup? Plan on soaking the bait (and sun), probably squid and shrimp (and beer). Depends what the tackle shop guys recommend. Will mostly be walking/carting out a mile or two from the house. Might take a drive a few miles south but not onto the beach (have 4wd), and staying far away from the point. Also, I will have plenty of opportunity to go out at night, is there anything that is a "must have" for surf fishing at night (do those rod lights actually work)? Let me know what you guys think and I'll be sure to update here and let you know how it goes! Bill
  4. I haven't seen eels mentioned, and don't recall seeing eels on sale as bait when last down in Buxton. That said, do eels (presumably dead, frozen, and brought to Buxton in my cooler) have any value as drum bait? Sharks will take them, I suspect. Black drum might take them more quickly than red drum ... maybe. If eels caught very well, the bait and tackle stores would carry them, but I wasn't really looking so might have missed them. Your thoughts?
  5. Best in-class custom diawa saltiga ballistic 35. Built by Keystone Custom rods, formerly in PA. Additional pics on Keystone website. Made to showcase the Keystone brand potential. All the best Fuji components; trigger seat, titanium guides and tiptop. Weighted butt-cap system (diawa factory) with 29" to trigger. Perfect mid heaver for big fall fish and serious drum fishing. Excellent casting performace with 6-8oz. and bait. Subtle diamond decorative wrap above handle and matching guide wraps in maroon, metallic gold, silver, and red with xflock shrink handle. This is the finest conv. layout I have cast on this blank; titanuim SV 25 - 20 - 16 - 16, and N 16 - 16, with titanuim 16 tiptop. Total of 6 guides plus tiptop. Super light and super crisp. I have owned this rod since 2014. Rarely used and is in perfect condition. $425 shipped paypal Please let me know if you have questions. Best Judah
  6. I may be taking an impromptu trip to NC this week and I'll be bringing the kayak. We're staying around New Bern along the Neuse River and I'd really like to get into some drum. I've never fished for drum before so I don't even know what to look for. If anyone could give me some tips or is feeling generous enough to PM me a spot or 2 I'd appreciate it.
  7. I am heading down to Cape Lookout from DC area on sunday for the first time. Rolling solo just me and my dog. I typically fish Assateague and Delmarva beaches and am new to fishing OBX. If there are any SOL members that are going to be on the island......I could use some pointers. I will be driving a greenish gray Sierra 1500 with DE Surf Fishing Tag on the front and MD Tags. Black rod rack on rear. Stop by and say hi. Will trade beer for fresh bait. Whats the main difference between north and south island fishing? Best place to get fresh cut bait other than Davis Ferry? Any tips on rig for bull reds? THANK YOU FOR ANY AND ALL INPUT
