Shallow water fishing in the sound and lower Neuse has been very good. Catching plenty of nice puppy drum and flounder. Starting to see a few specks every day. Tarpon have ben scattered but still being caught and the big drum are starting to show but are still a little slow. Look for a big push as we get closer to the full moon.

Capt. Gary wasn't there a tarpon tournament up there? About 2 weeks ago +/-? I tried to find out what the results were but couldn't find out anything. Do you know anything about it? I was thinking there was one in Oriental but maybe it is in Washington.

There was a tarpon tournament in Oriental July 30/31. Gene Wooster won with 3 or 4 tarpon and 2 other anglers had 2 each...I'm not psitive on the total number of fish caught. You were either in them or not. I was not. Not a bunch of fish showing. I had one bit, but no go on the fish.

Tarpon fishing is like that. anybody that likes to fish and deer hunt has gotta like tarpon fishing. It is a hunting game that includes some exciting fishing and a lotta challenge. First you have to find them, then you have to get them to bite. After that you are still about a 7 to 1 underdog. For a feeling of accomplishment there's not much out there to compare. AL
