    Floated the river today. Gorgeous day. Water is still a bit cool and the fish were sluggish. A dozen or so small bream and a little smallie. Broke my small Tenkara rod setting a popper on a 5” bream. Ugh.

    Jacob Fork. Catawba Valley wildlife club to Providence Church Rd. Might be able to work something out. :)

    Sweet. I've not done Jacob Fork at all, yet, despite having lived in the area since 2007.

    Providence Church Rd downstream is good too. But the take out at Greedy Hwy is pretty much gone. The landowners buried the road in wood debris. Assuming the knuckle heads were trashing the place. I didn't realize that until we took out and it was not a pleasant take out. Need to find something else. And there is is a put in/take out on 127 with a $2 donation to the landowner for using it. That one takes out at Finger Bridge Rd. I have only done CVWC to PC and PC to Greedy though.

    Good evening on the lake. Broke off a bigger one, over 4 lbs, right by the dock on the way out. I’m liking this chatterbait!

    Wife’s white bass. She’s not much on the in hooking.

    Found the rod she lost 2 weeks ago too.
    Lauren paddled right up to it. The lake had come down several feet and it was barely under water.

    On vacation so another trip down the creek. Lots of smallies this trip. Wife caught her first one and put up a heck of a fight. I missed some nice ones.

    One gave my wife fits. She was hooting and hollering. Lol. I caught one about 14” or so and he got aerobatic and run me around. And I missed a couple that were bruisers. Probably 2-3 pounders. It was a good day.

    Took JR fishing last week for the first time. He could 5-6 all by himself. He was super proud that he casted, hooked and reeled then in by himself.

    I grabbed some Zoom straight split tails, which is what that one took. Ordered some more Rebel wee crayfish crank baits last night and grabbed some double curly tailed trailers too.

    Caught this little guy messing around at lake macintosh in Burlington today. Went to test my fish finder out and figured I would drown some night crawlers while there.

    The best part was I saw 6 deer while floating in a small cove. One yearling knee deep in the water drinking didn’t even see me approaching.

    It stood there long enough for me to take a pic and then took off to find mom.

    Getting tuna in is like dragging a Volkswagen up from the bottom of the ocean.
    Makes me tired just watching.
    Glad you guys had a good day.

    Went down to Cape Lookout last Sunday as my brother came home with his kid and wanted to go fishing. Took him out to the Bight at the Cape and tied up to some old docks. I had what looked to be an 60-80lb black drum lazily moseying around the dock just feet from the boat. I threw the every thing at him and if I had had a few beers of liquid courage would probably have jumped on him for S&G. I hit him in the head several times with live minnows, small gulp, large gulp, small Zman, large Zman, and chugged top water plugs over him. No dice. I remember seeing two black drum this size last year on the flats, one was hit by a boat so I figure it may have been him. It was somewhat shy but seemed to tolerate the boat.

    Did see a record number of sea turtles. I lost count at 14.

    Tried out my new to me reel I got from @jim2024bob .

    I'm not sure what was going on, but it was some tough fishing Friday evening. It took over three hours to catch six fish. It was like nothing was biting.

    First fish with the new reel.

    I believe I heard this gal chuckling at my tiny fish.

    I'm a little late posting, my son and @Bows & Bullets caught these down in Swansboro two weekends ago. And you'll notice there is no picture of me with a fish (I did catch some just not big enough to be seen on camera with). It has been pointed out on numerous occasions by numerous individuals, who caught the bigger fish :rolleyes:.

    Honestly fly fishing only outshines traditional rod/reels on trout. Gotta be able to get the bait on that fish without spooking it. It’s fun for everything else but there are better rod/reel options for other freshwater fish...
