    Default Fort Fisher Meet 2019

    The Fort Fisher Meet will be October 25th & 26th this year. Posting up early for those who would like to attend so they can mark their calendar. Saturday being the day the group gets together followed by meeting at a restaurant for a meal. Iím really hyped on another surf fishing day like we had last year.

    Hope we can find some reds this year. But last year was a blast. We caught everything else!

    last year was absolutely fantastic fishing the surf and the fellowship was the best part of the day. And Donnie brought some tasty meatballs to go along with the Yankee dogs. I believe the catching everything else is due to John finding us a good spot on the beach.

    Thanks Ted. It was a pretty easy read. Nice hole adjacent to the sandbar you can see in the first pic you posted. Here's a bit of the variety hanging out in it.

    Have you been down the beach near Buzzards Bay before John. I have been told the surf fishing is pretty decent down there and not many people go down that way.

    Not sure where that is though I've surf fished most of the state from Duck to Sunset Beach.

    Linda caught a couple species on a 1984 Shimano bait runner on a Ugly stick rod. The last time she picked up a rod was in the early eighties. Was nice seeing her fishing again and maybe she will start fishing the surf again. I didnít take this pic, Thanks to John I have a pic to remember her day of fishing again.

    That's why I don't surf fish.... I have no idea how to read the structure, so it's just a waste of time.
    After all is said and done.... A heck of a lot more will be said than done

    I have not. It's only a mile or so further than were we were. I've not gotten down that far.

    As for Lovely Linda's surf rod, I own a Baitrunner of the same vintage. Daze has used it. Still works great and I've landed some over slot reds on it. Forgot about the Pompano in the mix too.

    Reading the surf is something I want to learn. I forgot how much I enjoyed surf fishing until last years meet.

    It's laid back relaxation interspersed with moments of excitement. Even when the action is slow sitting in front of God's salty nature machine without the beach crowds is tonic for the soul.

    I now have a small grill for the beach that should work well for burgers & Johns hot dogs. Upgraded the cooking grid to cast iron grates and will be using a mix of apple, cherry and oak lump charcoal.

    Looking good, before you know it, we will be doing lunch on the beach instead of a restaurant

    I like your thinking Donnie. More time to spend on the beach and no better view to enjoy a meal.
