  1. NC Coast
    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...

    Hi Friends. I'm from Jacksonville and I like to fish many different places. I've had some good times fishing this year. I'm really beginning to see the value in learning how to surf fish effectively. Places to surf fish are ubiquitous and its that advantage I love the most. I'm really favoring...

    Emerald Isle surf 10/23/16 5:15 pm on a falling tide. The false albacore finally came in to the surf and were busting up some silversides. First cast into the frenzy hooked up with this one. He made two great runs....had to tighten the drag twice. What a thrill! The 1 oz. gold Kastmaster...

    OK, I have a dumb question (and I'm sure so many of these posts have started with those words)... I have a Gander Mountain Myth fishing rod and reel that I use from the bank of the Pamlico River. It has 6lb test line right now, but I am going to respool the rod with 10-12lb test line. I am...

    Been a couple weeks since my last report, but I've been hitting the surf when I can. I like fishing from my kayak or skiff, but nothing beats the surf during winter months-though it hasn't felt like winter until recently. Caught these two on an outgoing tide from the beach this week, before...

    Once I realized my Panthers were going to handily beat the brakes off the Falcons, I decided to hit the beach and surf fish for some trout at halftime. ;) Fished from about 2:30 until 5:00 during the incoming tide. Saw plenty of small-looking baitfish flipping in the water, not much wind, bird...

    St. Croix 12' Mojo Surf Rod St. Croix 12' Mojo Surf Rod. Only used twice at the coast. Awesome rod, just too strong for my liking. Bought new this spring from Bass Pro. $280 new. No problems with it at all, no scratches, guides are still perfect. I've gotten into using lighter tackle, only...

    The baitfish are starting to show up in the surf zones, keep an eye out for them because there should be plenty of Cobia and Kings chasing them up! Has anyone been out to Northwest Places lately??
