  1. Meet and Greet
    Just joined. I'm considering selling small packs of freeze dried crickets for freshwater fishing and freeze-dried shrimp for for saltwater. Any thoughts on whether this is a good idea ? If so, would the classifieds here be a good way to start ?

    I headed out to surf fish today after work to see if yesterday's big pompano day could be repeated and I was not disappointed. Same spot, almost exact same time of day in the evening, on an incoming high tide. 8 total were caught today, including the 2 pictured.These fish were caught on both...

    Went surf fishing after work since it was so pretty out. Tied up a 2-hook drop rig, got some fresh shrimp and headed out. Didn't get many bites for a while, and watched a guy kayak fishing around busting bait for a while. He caught false albies and big blues. Once he came in we were chatting and...

  8. Freshwater Fishing
    A friend and I went out to the White Oak on Suday morning to do some bass fishing. This is a favorite spot of ours. It doesn't produce the biggest or most fish but it is a great area to be out in. We got about about a mile up from Haywood and decided to wet our line. The fish were jumping...
  9. Saltwater Fishing
    Ok, a few quick questions. Can you guys please name as many public areas as you can where I could fish at night for Shrimp and catfish? Ideally, I'd like to have a line in the water for the castfish, while I'm cast netting for shrimp (catching the shrimp to eat, not for bait, well maybe bait...
