That will be a nice tat post em up when you get them I am interested in how they turn out! Think my next one will be a Mahi Mahi Bone on the other shoulder already have it picked out! I just like the look of the bone structure. Found the red on a "Get Reel Get Fish" shirt it was the inshore slam one, the Mahi is coming off another of their shirts but its the OffShore slam! Great work everyone I was begining to lose hope around the morehead, beaufort area seems like all the good spots are hung up with nets  Really glad to see some reds in the middle to upper slot range! On Friday Jason hooked up on the Fly Rod for the first time and got her close to the boat probably the biggest one of the school and she spit the shrimp. Man I am amped up about this fishing this past weekend!

I've been waiting for the image upload to become a little easier before posting but I did manage 9 pups a couple saturdays ago.  Got a super early start and was on site in the MHC area just before sun up.  Another solo mission.
 

All fish were caught on live finger mullet in the 2" range below a popping cork w/ about 2' of flouro leader w/ #2 circle hook.   Biggest was 23" with the rest in the 19" to 20" range.  All fish were released except one since it has been a while since the family has had some fresh fish! 

 

Went back to the same spot after baby bed time and scored one more.  Hopefully hitting it later this week and into the weekend for some tailing action.  Will post if successful.

SZEXTREME,
 

It's been a real pleasure having you here.  Maybe I'll run into you in FL one of these days....no netters to worry about! Wink 

Between the fish that my wife and PIERMAN'S wife catch we should be able to keep reports coming on this thread.

 

On friday, Debbie and I headed to the marshes in Swansboro.  We managed 2 reds that were barely in the slot.  Mine was at the low end but her's was at the high end.  I couldn't get the pic to load so just flip back a page or 2 and you'll see a pic of her with one about the same size.

 

Sunday we went to the haystacks.  Caught 2 low end reds on plastic but the topwater bite was real strange.  Debbie and I both hung 2 decent sized reds but none of them got to the boat.  After a brief fight they just came off.  This very rarely happens, maybe 1 in 50, so it was weird that it happened 4 times in a row.  They seemed to be aggressive as it only took one try for each of them to get hooked.  Did the usual wait to feel the weight of the fish, then set the hook but they only stayed on from 5 to 20 seconds.  Anybody have any ideas?

 

Chris, you should try topwater............just use sharper hooks I guess.

Hi Paul,
 

Glad to see you and Debbie are still slaying them!  Carteret Co legends.  I had the topwater rigged up but they were biting so well I didn't want to jinx myself.  I had been in a slump lately on the fish so was going with the bird in the hand theory.  Maybe some topwater this week / end.  Perhaps I'll see you out.  If I do I'll know I'm in the right spot!

CF

 

PS. szextreme good luck in your new ventures down Fla way.  Keep us posted.

Paulg, I saw you and your lady heading toward your drum hole Sunday as I was leaving a nearby creek. 
 

Couldn't find any good-sized fish.  My buddy landed a few that were this size (18") in that general area.

Tim, I am enjoying this thread and hope it keeps on going. I wasn't able to fish this weekend, and my plans to improve my yak cart went kaput also. I am thinking about giving it another try this coming weekend if my wife is OK with it. Not sure about that yet.  You have so many nice fish. Bet that granddaugher is ready to go again by now.

Finally get to post on this thread.  Got this fellow to take a mullet under a popping cork I threw out behind the boat while I peppered the grassline with a gulp.  I think next time out I'll just throw a few more of them out and do less work.  Location was in the area of Rich's inlet norht of Fig 8 Island.

Nice fish Skip!  Don't give up the casting.  Nothing beats the feel of thinking you're hung on an oyster only to feel it start moving. ...... except seeing them roll on a topwater plug.

Went out on my father-in-law's Coastal Skiff Saturday. We were drifting in the White Oak for some flatboys, no luck there.  He was dragging a bottom rig with a shrimp on one hook and a mullet on the other, when he hooked up on doubles... 2 pups, one about 14" and the other was 21". He smoked me, all I could manage was 2 small pups..

That is an amazing pic Mal_Pais.  Between last Sat and Sun I must have witnessed at least 25 tails and countless pushes and wakes.  Frustrating because I could only get one to bit. 
 

Any general advise, aside from stealth, on catching them on the flats and grass?  Top water was a spooker, I used some weedless large mouth bass worms, spoon, gulp and live bait just on a leader no weight.  One of my issues was time since I only had about 2 hours each day. 

 

Thanks

Fished a half-day yesterday in the marshes behind Wrightsville.  Last couple of hours of the rising and then into falling tide.  Tried spinner baits and topwater the whole time.  Didn't see any schools to throw a fly to, but had a few swim under the boat.  One well over 30 inches.  Ended up catching three on a Top Dog, off points and oyster bars.  If a strike and hookup on an over-the-slot fish on topwater doesn't get your hear beating, you're dead!  First time trying to post pic.

Found 2 schools today, mostly undersized fish, but we found a few 20" reds.  Gulp natural 4" was the bait of choice.

Sunday, August 19th:

Couldn't find them schooled up today, but we found a few small slot-sized fish.  Gulp shrimp on a popping cork was the call.

We had about the same luck this weekend around the haystacks.  All between 17 and 20 inches.  Couldn't get one to touch a top water plug.
 

Debbie did manage to get a 5+ lb trout almost to the net. The line broke above the popping cork. Cry  We followed it off and on for a couple of hours and it eventually went back to the same place he was hooked.

 

If anyone sees a green popping cork moving around, it's attached to a NICE trout. Hug

 

Does anyone know if they're gonna fix the picture downloader or is that "photobucket" thing going to be it?
