Hope you catch it! Good stuff and I like the pictures. Looks like you had the beach pretty much to yourself.

Nice catch I was on South Point last week.

Great thread Rick. Finally some photos on the fishing forum Beer


RE: Hate when this happens




Yes, I agree with the last comment. So nice to see so many comments and pictures on the fish forum. Thanks for getting it started, Rick. All nice catches gentlemen.

I come to this thread every time I sign in and most the time... nothing. Hatteras is first and foremost a fishing island. Been coming here since I was 10 years old in 1961. This was refreshing to see. Let's keep it going guys and gals! Fish

Very true. I always look here and get a little bummed if there's nothing new. Rick got the ball rolling. I'll be down on the 11th to fish and will make a point to post. Fish

What a difference a day makes, no bait to find or fish. I fished ramp 67 for 2 hours, nothing ,went to south point fished another 2 hours, not even the crab were biting the bait. I didn't see any one else doing any thing. Very nice day on the beach lots of shells to look over .

Oh well thankful for what I got. this is the last day. We are almost packed headed home in the morning .

count for he week
5 drum
1 speckled trout
1 15 1/2 inch flounder
4 small blue fish
1 pompano
3 pin fish
2 sting rays

Oh well not bad , I hope to be back in the spring

Oh yeah a calico crab too
Tight line




RE: Hate when this happens




We were there for our week in mid July. Caught over 100 fish but cleaned cleaned and ate a total of 99. Took a small batch home too. All were spot, pompano, mullet, croker, a few blue fish, no keeper flounder, no Spanish. But it was nice catching fish everyday. No sting rays this year either. Normally always get at least one. No drum either. But I am not complaining. Always love catching what we caught. They are so good to eat. All caught around the point. It was a great week! My brother-in-law went with us this year. First time to the ocean and onviously first time surf fishing. He was absolutely amazed. He is still talking about it and can't wait to go again next year with us. I get no greater thrill than to introduce someone to surf fishing on Hatteras island. I always say the first fish catches you. I is always a special moment when that happens. My brother-in-law was no exception. I have had the pleasure of witnessing that many times with family over the years it never gets old. smiley
