One Stripe Away From a Skunk
Here in Oriental all town roads end at the water which creates tiny parks between the waterfront homes.

I spent an hour fishing then this evening and managed to beat the skunk with a little Striper who surprised me with a vigorous strike right at my feet as I was pulling out for the next cast.

Hooked Up At Sunset
The bite was slow on an evening fluke trip so I decided to use my light spinning set up spooled with #10 braid. On the business end I lightened up my leader to #20 to which I tied on a 3/4 ounce bucktail with a closer teaser above. Casted out and would you know it, after just a few bounces I got slammed. The fish proceeded to run directly away from the boat. I didn't want to touch the drag, so I cupped the spool but that did little so the fish down. Wasn't long before I was into the Mono backing on the reel. Fortunately, the fish slowed and I was able to turn it. At this point guesses were made as to what was on the end of the line. Guesses included a big striped bass, cow nose ray and black drum. I was hoping for a big weakfish. The thought of a big bluefish did cross my mind but I thought that after a few minutes that if it was a bluefish it would have bitten through the light leader early in the fight. I was able to gain line although the fish still made a few more drag pulling runs. Eventually had the fish boatside and got a gaff stuck in it. As hard as it was for me to believe it was a big bluefish of #11+ hooked perfectly in the corner of the mouth where it wasn't able to bite the leader.

The Bluefish bite is still going strong. Cocktails ruled the day. There was a two hour run of none stop Gators...all were picky but we got it done. With so many cocktails around this signals the end of May, and time to focus on Striped Bass out East.

Close But No Cigar
The winds are brutal down here in Oriental today. A lot of folks where fishing today but anyone who had the boat to cross the Neuse River did so to get to the lee shore. My old boat is not that seawortht so I stayed local and worked in heavy wind. This puppy was the best fish caught today but was still 1 inch shy of being a keeper.

Gator hits the heavy SP
This is just another end to end, and slack to slack fishing trip. I almost went home when the skunk ruled they outing. I was encouraged to stay so I took a brake to at a cookie, drink a Gatorade, and a short nap. I woke to find the bite had turned on! Bluefishing like I'm use to...finally. Screaming Drag!

Shaka Antoine @terryb, they have known names that relate to their size. The names are snapper, cocktail, and gator. To me a snapper is 6" to 4lbs, cocktail 4-6lbs, gators are 10lbs and up. I call that 7,8,9 size just Bluefish lol.

Dock Puppy
Stepped out for an hour and fished a couple of docks down the street from my house. I managed to pull this little guy out from under a dock.

I stepped a little closer to the dock for a better shot and found some fire ants the hard way, by touch. Ouch!
