Fished 16 hours starting around 11:30 pm Friday at Carolina Beach Pier. Not too cold but very windy. Spot started biting good around 6 am Saturday and were still going strong at 3 pm when we had to leave cause we ran out of cooler space. We pulled them in 2 at a time using leftover fish bites from last years fall fishing season. My husband and I filled a 60-quart cooler with 150 of the largest spot I've ever seen. Looks like the best season since 2008 when we brought home about as many but not as big from Carolina Beach Pier. Can't wait to go back in a couple of weeks.
