The Outer Banks North Carolina Ruled! Check out the photos

The saltwater fishing absolutly ruled! I caught so many redfish (puppy drums) around the shipwreck outside of the house we rented, I became tired and had to go back and take a nap! We used a Cajun Rattle Cork (it is like a bobber, with a glass bead, brass bead "clacker"- like a top water carolina rig). Below the Bobber, we used red jigs with Gulp! shrimp. What an amazing rig!

The fishing was great- a couple of days into it, I realized that there were about 10-20 small sharks swimming around the wreck while we were out there. They left us alone, but once the huge Man-O-Wars moved in, I was out of there!

Table Rock Lake, MO.- Cape Fair June 19-21st

Camping was great at Cape Fair last week. Got a chance to fish from shore just a little (business has been incredible as of late!.
Caught a couple of nice bass off of the dock by the boat launch. Caught one on a Chomper crawdad texas rigged throwing a 6' rod, 14# test. Caught another bass later on a Bomber Crawdad crank bait. Some small Longear Sunfish on night crawlers and slip bobbers.
Fish On!

Surf fishing great in the Outer Banks

We just got back from a week in the Outer Banks, NC. The weather and fishing was incredible! We really got on some fish this week. My brother-in-law, Rob, came down with us and we fished all week long- very cool!
We could not have done it without the help of the local tackle and bait shop, Hatteras Jacks. They were so helpful in assisting us with strategies for saltwater (not like we have any saltwater in the midwest- I wish!).
I think that is the secret if you really want to get on some fish- ask for direction. I know that when people ask me about what is biting and how to go about it, I really try to make myself and open book. We live in a fishing world of abundance. What you sow in this world is what you reap-Givers Gain, as we say in BNI. The same holds true to fishing.

Fish On!
