Harkers in November

Hi All,

I am planning on hitting Harkers around mid November and am looking for information.

It sounds like a great place to stay is the Fisherman inn at Atlantic Beach, hopefully the docks are big enough for a 30 foot Scarab.

I'd appreciate any tips on good places to eat, places to stay like the Fishermans's inn that have a dock for your boat immediately available.

Thanks in advance,
Greg.

Try the the Carribe Inn which friends of mine stay in and like a lot. Fisherman's Inn looks a little shady to me. Beaufort Inn is right next to the inlet and has docks.
Tons of great places to eat around here. Most are quite good.

Stayed at the Beaufort Inn a few years back .... nice diggs.
The town of Beaufort is pretty classy w/ great restaurants.
Short ride to the inlet too!
By car, Moorehead City & Atlantic Beach are nearby ....

Stay at the Beaufort Inn. It's a great place and you can walk to town where there are some great places to eat. Also a short ride out to the hook for albies.

good luck,

If you stay at Beaufort Inn make sure you say hello to Ms Katie for me (one of the owners) she goes to church with my in-laws (this is a small town)

Looks like there is a fair chance I will be in Harkers in early November as well. Capt. if you have any pictures of flies you use for both the Albies as well as trout and Redfish you could share I would love to see them. I will have a 20ft Jones Brothers and I hear sneaking back in the inlets can be a fine time if the seas are too much to chase the tunoids.

Thanks in advance,

Sean

Sean,
Fishing the inside is something I've toyed with as well; we'll have to see if we can work this into the plan if necessary.

Sean, I've read that a fly called an alba clouser is great. It's just a clouser tied with super hair. Good colors are white and olive with gold flash. I tied mine on #2's with bead chain eyes and fished them on a sinking tip line. Tom Earnhardt, who is the false albacore guru, came up with the pattern.

In fact, if you have a jones brothers boat, he's the guy who designed the light tackle edition.

good luck,
JT

Here is how I tie a Clouser: http://www.geocities.com/~flyfishnc/gordoclouser.html

Here is a glass minnow pattern of my own design (that has been designed by every flytyier in the world as well): http://www.geocities.com/~flyfishnc/...glassmino.html

and my fav thing to use is a Crease Fly: http://www.geocities.com/~flyfishnc/creasefly.html

If the little tiny minners are around try the Dirty Sanchez: http://www.geocities.com/~flyfishnc/rainbait.html

My flytying page lists all the flies I use for reds and such too: http://www.geocities.com/~flyfishnc

Have a good time when you come down here. If you want to go redfishing one evening or on a weekend...I am here.

Thanks Capt. I will check those out.

Quick question. Do you know if you guys are running ethanol blended gas (E-10) down there? According to my dealer I need to be very careful about blending the old MTBE stuff with the E-10 and I am having trouble figuring out via the web what I will find when I get down there.

Thanks again,

Sean
