Talking My week at Emerald Isle

As I promised here is the report on my fishing experience at Emerald Isle, NC. Or maybe I should call it a non-report as the fish where I was didn't seem to be hitting much of anything I put out in the water. This must have been the timing of my trip as I talked to several other people fishing the surf and their experience was the same. Most people were fishing with bait and a heavy weight to carry it far out into the surf.

The home we stayed at was about a quarter mile from the Bogue Inlet and I had the opportunity to fish the surf and the Inlet. Actually I think I may have had it up on those who were fishing with bait as I caught one Blue (15") in the surf at the point where the Inlet starts and one Flounder (12") in the Inlet. Both were caught using a Sand Eel pattern which my son, Gregg, taught me to tie.

I may have had better luck if I had fished every day but as this was a vacation for more than myself, some time was spent doing tourist type things. I found the people living on the banks to be very friendly, polite and helpful. My thanks to Captain Gordon and Dr. Bogus for their help pointing me in the right direction even though the fish were not cooperating while I was there. Emerald Isle is a delightful place and I will surely return to try my luck again.

Papa G,
I am glad you enjoyed yourself. Sorry the fishing wasn't better for you. Surf fishing is pretty difficult even when it is really good. I am glad to help whenever you are headed this way.

JD,
STOP YELLING. Turn off the Caps Lock. Thanks.

Hey JD, not all of us are english majors by any stretch of the imagination, but it is expected that spelling, grammar and punctuation would be correct, or at least as best that you can do...

Papa-G, hope you still had a good time. That stuff can be downright tough...
