    Trolling - Methods, Gear and Baits
    by Michael Russell

    The fact that fish will strike at moving objects has been known to man since the dawn of time. Evidence of this has been found throughout the world. Polynesians troll pearl shell jigs with tortoise-shell hooks from paddle canoes. Other races trolled from a variety of sail and oar propelled vessels, long before the advent of the motor. Now anglers can troll at various speeds and to depths of up to 60 fathoms with long lines

    The Future of Billfishing
    by Richard Churdy

    If you love something, set it free. It’s not the exact or full quote and I’m pretty sure that the author wasn’t talking about a fish. Nevertheless, the sentiment seems to best express my feelings about billfish and their importance in the grand scheme of things. I ran across another quote that speaks volumes, and it goes like this - “A release today, is a fish tomorrow!” Yep, this guy is speaking my language. I wonder how many others f

    The Majik Drum Rig
    by Capt. Owen Lupton



    What is the purpose of the short leader drum rig with circle hook? That is a legitimate question some of you may have asked. In an effort to save our big red drum, so the spawning stock can increase, the Division of Marine Fisheries closed the season on taking any red drum over 27” in length a few years ago. Since there was an extensive fishery operating in Pamlico Sound on large fish over 27” it became apparent that status q

    The Benefits of a Fishing Guide
    by Aaron Ralston

    Here is my definition of a perfect fishing day: “Heading out into the open bays in search of 28” redfish and schools of hungry speckled trout, limiting out and loading up the boat with a stringer of fish that could win the next big fishing tournament, having the fish cleaned for you and not cleaning one rod, reel or boat, all before noon.” The fishing trip I just described sounds like the whopper of a tale you would hear while pla

    The Red Drum - North Carolina's State Fish
    by Capt. George Beckwith

    When Capt. Owen Lupton and young Rick Cayton caught the first tarpon on a rod and reel in the deeper waters of Pamlico Sound in 1976, a new fishery was created for Pamlico County anglers. The heavy, 20-40 pound gear reserved for offshore excursions through Ocracoke Inlet proved ideal for the newfound tarpon fishing. In the subsequent years, a few local anglers spent thousands of hours battling mosquitoes, dodgi
