Took my dad over to the island for the first time for both of us... he will be 69 Nov. 8th and what a treat for both of us. He was able to video my catch of a 27" false albacore on light tackle that he was more excited about than I was.  Great memories for both of us on a beautiful island... thanks to everyone  that stopped to talk to us while we were there.  Our first trip of hopefully many more to come.

I thought the fellas looking at the internet and dreaming of fishing would like to see these pics.. November , 5, 2016>>>>We got the OLE DRUM club together this weekend and had a DRUM FEST.  The OLE SILVER BACK that has fished the island for over thirty years caught one as well as our JOEY that showed up with tackle box and shorts on. Several  fish were caught and we really thank the DSFS for making sure the bait was fresh and the ice cold.  Even had some BLUES, FLOUNDER, TOADS, DRUM, CROAKER, POMPANO, ROCK Skates AND Sharks were all caught.  Saw a couple of FAT ALBERTS caught too. Big Fish of the weekend was a 40-incher.

They are evacuating the island (10/4/16) and we caught the 3:15 ferry. Biggest fish I have ever caught in my life. I felt as though I had won the lottery. This was a Heck of a catch for me. 46 1/2 ins and 50+ lbs. Caught on cut bait.  It almost feels like a dream to me to have caught a fish this big.

Have fished the island for almost twenty years mostly with crazed fishing fools that stink of beer and bait.

This trip (Sept 10) took the females of the family and had as good a time as those trips of filling the cooler with flounder and drum.

Enjoyed all there is to do at Core Banks from fishing to camping to site seeing and shell searching.  September is not hot and heavy fishing but is real good weather, warm swimming water and breezy enough to keep the bugs down and no line at the shower.  Hear is a couple of photos for the drum wagon faithful to enjoy.

Went over Friday (4/29) came back Sunday evening...fishing was slow and rough especially on Saturday. We managed only a handful of whiting and blues on Friday, along with landing a few med size sharks 400yards north of the point.
Saturday was rough fishing in the wind, struck out at the point, moved north to the cabins, landed some decent sharks in between break offs...and the shining moment of our trip at 10pm we landed a 48inch watermelon head Red Drum on fresh bluefish, right in front of Cabin 1. Fattest drum I've ever seen, he was just chilling with a herd of dusky sharks.
Sunday was again slow, sharks and a few blues.
Overall not much bait to be had, if your headed over I'd pack some extra from the mainland.
Roads and beach were in the best condition I've seen over my past few trips, access to the point was fine, though we didn't have extreme tides over the weekend.
Can't wait till Oct.

My older brother with the catch of the weekend. Black drum caught, 4/10/2016 at the best place on earth. Four generations of family for a fishing trip and we got to witness the catch of a lifetime. Wish I had a pic of every one.

3/27/16 -- Made a quick trip over this weekend to start off 2016 season with my (new to me) fish buggy. Had awesome time, weather, fishing, serenity, and met some good people. Thanks to Fleet & Kimberly, salty visitors of the island sharing their experiences with this new buggy owner. Plenty of blues, few mullets and 3 Drum - 46", 29" , 39" kept me motivated this weekend. Looking forward to the next outing.
