I was unable to fish over the weekend. I normally fish the Pungo/northern Pamlico sound, and my impression up to that point is that there are some big ones around, but like everything else for this year except flounder, a little slow compared to more normal years. Personally, my boat has only landed one this year. Now I'm getting ready to have 2 sets of guests over the coming weekend and early following week (planned months in advance) specifically for the oldies, but getting a bit nervous. Reports seem to be very inconsistent, and so far nothing on this board about this last weekend. I've been bragging to my out of town buddies about this fishery for years, and to maximize our chances I have booked a reputable guide for a 1/2 day as back up. Sure would like to also get some on our own. Has anybody got any encouraging news?
