Me, surferdude and basswrangler decided to scratch the itch and hit up swansboro today, unfortunately Basswrangler doesn't have a kayak so we decided to brave the ICW in a canoe instead. It was an adventure carrying it 100 miles on his ford taurus but aside from that it worked out pretty well. We got there around 2:30 and fished the falling tide. Saw a ton of bait and a few drum but the hard part was getting them to bite. Ended up finally sticking too one spot after losing a real nice one and pulled in a 23 incher. It was a fun fight on 10lb braid. There was also a a few rays and an underslot drum caught in the same spot. Before we left I also managed my first keeper flounder of the year and one that was a little too small. A dang good way to spend the afternoon by any means. No topwater love, though I did try. Fish came on redfish magic and gulp shrimp.
