Yeah, ok I have been on this Forum for some time now and totally forgot to do this introduction thing!!!

SORRY!!!

I'm Michael, I teach science at a museum here in Wilson. I grew up in Claremont, California, which is just outside of Los Angeles. I started fishing on the pier on Venice Beach with buddies of mine when I was in high school, and eventually began fishing the Balboa Island Pier when I became more addicted.

I moved to NC when I was in college, and I picked up freshwater fishing here. My favorite spots are Lake Wilson Reservoir, City Lake in Rocky Mount and Wiggins Mill in Wilson. As far as piers, I think it gets no better on the East Coast than the Nags Head Fishing Pier.

My whole philosophy on fishing can be summed up in this sentence:
"Were you at work?"

And I firmly believe that kids who buy worms are not buying drugs.

I have never turned down a fishing invitation and I am fast to extend them. And I pride myself on be a non-boat-owning angler.


See you out there!!!!

Yeah, I kinda screwed up the whole intro thingy too. Welcome aboard.

Your philosophy about kids buying worms made me think back to when I was a kid when my dad and I would watch the Southern Sportsman on PBS. I loved his show ending line "Do yourself a favor. Take a kid fishing". Too bad I can't remember his name at the moment.

Thanks for the intro BCdogs14!

No shame at all in being a non-boating fisherman. I am one now myself. It's all for the love of our great sport! Below is a great site dedicated to boatless fishing and though it pertains to Florida there are some good tips on there.

Welcome aboard. I grew up a good 6 hrs from the place I've always liked to fish. I started making the trip on my own when I got my drivers license. 30 yrs later it is a little harder to make that trip but fortunately that is changing for the better. I used to be a regular at Jennett's pier many moons ago but I have fished all of the OBX piers with exception of the one I always wanted to fish.....(the Duck Corps of Engineers pier.) I've fished the piers at Sunset Cliffs/Pacific Beach, Oceanside and San Clemente also. I've been out on Venice Pier a couple of times but never fished it. Balboa Island Pier....I've probably been pretty close to it...but didn't know it existed. You already got one up on me there. But anyway, I can see why you would like Nags Head Pier...Much better fishing than I ever experienced on the West Coast piers that I tried.
