    Hoping for a morning like this for the get together. The afternoon return to the launch was definitely no fun especially for Linda. Winds coming straight from the launch gusting around 17 mph with waves splashing over the bow and to shallow for mirage drive. I made the mistake of giving Linda half a paddle but she was a trooper and never gave up and paddled over half way of the Basin to the launch, not easy in PA 12 I can assure you.

    The Basin is separated form the Cape Fear River by a civil war era rock wall and the beach on the other side. Very shallow and at low tide water can be as low as a foot or less. If you venture back beyond Zekes Island there is a marked channel close to the wall that holds some deeper water. The wind direction and how hard it is blowing can make some pretty decent waves in the Basin but if that is predicted I wonít recommend on going. If you venture back beyond Zekes Island and go exploring the channels in the grass areas donít be caught in there in low tide. If you are the exploring type of person like me a gps can be your friend when you look around and everything looks the same when you are ready to return to the launch ramp. I personally love the Fort Fisher area for kayaking fishing.

    I take plenty of water, sunscreen and snacks and a rain jacket just in case a pop up rain hits being you are at the coast. I Hope this helps and inspires you to come and fish and explore a new area.

    I'm up for a meet and fish on those dates, keep me in the loop. PM me if you would. I live in the area and have fished there a lot over the past 15 years, sadly the netters have taken their toll. I haven't caught many fish in the past year or so. They have really wiped the place out. I always love to check out the other wildlife though. Love the Fort. Chers, Darrell

    There is places that hold fish Iím sure you are aware of that netting is about impossible. A bit of a risk getting stuck back in the grass areas if you really donít pay attention to the tide but usually produce. Here is a small red that I caught on out going tide and had to drag him out of the grass fast as well as myself.
