Hook, Line and Sinker: Local Fishing Report and Photos for June 4th, 2014

When Jerry, Ray and Bill extended their generous invitation to me to go fishing with them it took about a nanosecond for me to say ”yes”.  Someone had supplied them with ”numbers” for some off-shore ledges and they wanted to go check them out.  We took Ray’s boat out about 25 miles to the first stop, and immediately caught fish. Not satisfied with the absence of Grouper, our leader wanted to go to a few more known locations, a little further out.  When we’d had enough, we were 40 miles from CB inlet. I’m not sure exactly where (couldn’t reveal it if I did know) but I do remember seeing Frying-Pan-Tower at one point.  The day’s highlight for me was catching a large black sea bass.  It’s true...  my fishing history being limited to mostly inshore creeks, bays, and the Cape Fear,  I’d caught plenty of small ones, but never a keeper.  North Carolina requires Black Bass (actually a type of grouper) to be at least 13 inches long, and limits us to keeping no more than 5 per day. Mine was about 16” and weighed 3.5 pounds. More importantly, it tasted great the next day! 
In the end, we had caught our limit of Porgy, a good sampling of Black Sea Bass, Grouper, a Triggerfish, and an assortment of other bottom dwellers; enough that on the way in we started calling friends to meet us at the dock if they wanted any fresh fish.  We enjoyed good weather, smooth seas, and fellowship that kept us smiling all day long. Way better than just a good day. (I call it a good day when nobody gets hurt and we don’t break anything.)  It was a Great Day!  How blessed we are!   
Thanks Jerry. 
Thanks Ray. 
Thanks Bill.
Wishing you the best,

Neil Clark landed this lunker flounder this week.

Danny, from Raleigh, caught this pretty Redfish in the Cape Fear.

Get Busy Charters had been hot!
