I made it down to the beach this weekend to fish the Hook Line & Paddle TJM tourney down in Wilmington. Fishing was good Friday & Saturday. Caught some nice drum and flounder and one monster trout. Got lucky enough to win the Grand Slam prize on Saturday with a 70.25" slam (Trout 27.5, Flounder 20.75, & Red 22).

Bout had a heart attack when I saw that trout come up beside the boat. Looked like an angry serpent! Needed the trout to complete my slam as I had a red and flounder already. Missed the fish on the first swipe with the net and so glad I didn't knock the lure out of it's mouth. I wouldn't have slept for days and no one would've believed me cause I could tell it was a monster. Beat my pb trout by 2.5 inches. I would have won the Trout division also, but the rules allow only one prize per angler this year. Toba says that is the "Bob Clause" because last year he won red and slam and left with 2 yaks, so they changed the rules :). I think it is a good rule change though. It's a charity tourney so spread the wealth. I could just as easily benefit from the rule next year.

The slam prize this year was a Slayer Propel 13 along with paddle, trophy cup, cooler and a few other small items. Productive lures for reds & flounder were topwater and redfish magic spinnerbait. The monster trite was caught on MR27 mirrolure. Some pics from the weekend:

This was an annual event put on by Hook Line and Paddle out of Wilmington. There are quite a few other events though this year. Check out NCKFA (http://nckfa.com/), Carolina Kayak Anglers on facebook, Queen City Kayak Bass Fishing, and Riverbassin website. That covers most of them I can think of off the top of my head. Still quite a few left this year.

Thanks man, yeah, those bigger reds were from Friday. Needed a bit more water on Saturday to catch them in the same spot. Tide was just starting to come in good in the area when we had to leave to make weigh in.
