A lot of you guys may be interested in what the fishing is like around here and debating whether or not to come down here to fish for albies: if you have a trip scheduled for this week you may want to hold off. We are supposed to get a strong SE blow in the middle of the week. This will put things off substantially. There were some albies in Beaufort Inlet this am, early. But they have been pretty scattered for the most part. If anybody is interested in these reports I will continue to update them. In the meantime here is a fish I caught Saturday night:

Cpt.

Your reports make us sick, but we're all gluttens for punishment here in the Northeast (just look at where we live!)

So, keep'm coming!

Beside, you can't get vritual Puke on your shoes!


BTW: Nice Speck!

Forgot to mention in my initial post that I was fishing in shorts and sandals this weekend...

Capt G,

Yes please keep the reports coming!

I was considering doing a trip mid-November but I am discouraged by how poor it has been so far. Talked to a couple
of captains by phone who said it has been very spotty so far and nothing like the explosive action of the last couple of years.

Do you think things will heat up as the month progresses and cooler temps prevail, or is this just doomed to be a lame year for Alberts?

Your insights are appreciated.

Dave

Capt. G -

Yes, until we get the pro-pages up and running it'll be good to hear what's happening. I'll talk to you offline about the pro-pages changes that are coming up very soon.

Big Dave,
Anybody who tells you they know what is going to happen with the albies this year is full of it. There is no way to predict.
Juro,
I am just reporting as a service. I am not trying to push myself or anything. I am taking my URl off of my signature.

Cool, nor did I mean to imply. I am working on this new part of the site over the winter and thought you might be a great asset, actually!

Keep 'em coming!
