Ok wen fishing this weekend up in Emerald Isle. Did some surf and pier fishing. Caught shark after shark after shark. Then after a couple of blues up in Fort Macon, I had a double rig out with cut mullet and 2/0 Gam. Octupus Circle Hooks, and not really paying attention when my surf stick bent almost in half. Well long story short after a 300 yard running battle in the surf, I landed a 26" 8lb puppy drum, my biggest ever so I was really excited. Yes I kept it and yes it was delicious. I did catch some decent snapper blues as well. All in all it was a great trip.

How awesome! I can't wait to reel in one of those. We are going to Roanoke Sound pier this weekend. I hope to pull in one with a good fight. That is the most thrilling feeling. The biggest fish I have caught to date is a 2lb catfish. I am originally from Ky, and the coast fishing has me so pumped!! Will be wearing my lucky hat! Great job bankandsurf!!:) Thanks for the pics.

Hey Greg other that Sharks what did you catch again, oh yeah a crab.:p

Well, If you hadn't stolen that pup off my line and put him on yours I might have reeled him in!:D

BTW, I'm off duty for the next couple days if you wanna get together and drown some minnows. I'll be putting the boat on the water today or tomorrow to make sure she's still running. It's been a busy summer and this will be the first time I get the chance this year. Give me a call and let me know.
