    YETI Drops NRA Foundation

    Suddenly, without prior notice, YETI has declined to do business with The NRA Foundation saying they no longer wish to be an NRA vendor, and refused to say why. https://www.nraila.org/articles/20180421/florida-alert-yeti-drops-nra-foundation
  3. New North Carolina Cobia Regulations For 2018 MOREHEAD CITY – The recreational cobia season begins May 1, and the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries is reminding anglers that the regulations have changed. The recreational cobia season will run May 1 to Dec. 31 with a minimum size limit of 36 inches fork length (tip of the snout to the fork in the tail) and a possession limit of one fish per person per day. For private boats, from May 1 to May 31, the maximum limit will be one fish per person per day, not to exceed two fish per vessel per day, regardless of the number of anglers on board. For private boats, from June 1 to Dec.31, the maximum vessel limit will be one fish per vessel per day, regardless of the number of anglers on board. For for-hire operations (charter boats, head boats, guide boats), from May 1 to Dec. 31, the vessel limit will be four fish per vessel per day, or one fish per person per day if fewer than four people are on board. Anglers must return all cobia not meeting the harvest requirements to the water in a manner that ensures the highest likelihood of survival. For more information, contact Steve Poland, cobia species lead with the Division of Marine Fisheries, at 252-808-8159 or Steve.Poland@ncdenr.gov. 2018 VIRGINIA COBIA REGULATIONS From VMRC Website The 2018 Virginia recreational cobia regulations are as follows: 40-inch, total length, minimum size limit; 1-fish daily possession limit or 3-fish-daily vessel limit, whichever is more restrictive; only one fish per vessel per day may be greater than 50 inches in total length; an open season of June 1 through September 30; and gaffing is now allowed to land a cobia while fishing recreationally. All anglers, captains, and guides fishing for cobia must obtain a Recreational Cobia Permit from the Commission and report all harvest and cobia fishing activity. Permits can be obtained online here or at an MRC Licensing Agent. Reporting can be done online through the Saltwater Journal or using forms provided by the VMRC.

    Back Bay blitz!

    Well, in the spirit of "keeping the people updated", here is my fishing report from the North River in North Carolina from Saturday, 3/31. In excess of 75, maybe 100 large crappie and SUPER large bluegill, with a mix in of bass. All caught under bobbers with either small minnows or night crawlers. Best bank fishing day I have had in years for those species....maybe ever! Did not see or hear a soul all day! And I fished alone and released EVERYTHING. If ya wanna catch fish in the spring or winter, I suggest you: 1)Get a North Carolina License 2)Go exploring everything bigger than a mud puddle, and don't be afraid to change up tactics. We fished four out of the last six Saturdays in Back Bay with FANTASTIC FISHING, up to the middle of March when it all changed up and the crappie were mostly runts...then I went south this week. 3)Meat baits, baby...I don't remember catching ANYTHING this late winter/early spring on artificial....and I have tried using them every week. Good luck to you all. BA PS I think I could have caught on flyrod, but it is tough to do when you are getting bites all day with hardly a break. Maybe next weekend.

    Okay awesome thank you very much , I mean I got two decent setup I think lol , I got a Offshore Tighline reel with an Offshore 7’ medium heavy fast action with 25lb mono and then a shamano 4000f with same pole / with braided , not sure what test it is though .. definitely head to that tackle shop and check it out though .

    There are a lot of affordable rods out there but don't skimp on your reel. Cheap reels full of plastic will only last a couple of weeks.The greater the amount of steel ball bearings, the smoother the retrieval. Many recommend getting the reel with the most ball bearing that you can afford, but with 5 you’ll get plenty of smoothness at an affordable price. Stop by a shop like Long Bay Pointe Bait and Tackle and they'll show you some nice combos. Lures vary widely depending on which fish are available. Mirror Lures, metal spoons, bucktails, leadheads/swimming tails are all popular. Tight Lines! http://longbaypointebaitandtackle.com/

    Just had a question , I’m starting up fishing again and trying to get back in the game . Ive been fishing the Lynhaven inlet and trying to start lure fishing . Could you give me any recommendations for rod, reels , line, and lures ? Really trying to catch any fish I can at this time in the season and want to have everything ready for when the water gets warmer

    Fished two consecutive weekends with medium minnows and caught many large crappie with bluegills and bass mixed in. Back Bay has the fish if you have the time to go look for them! We have been using 9-12' crappie rods which are a BLAST with 2 lb crappie! Keep alert for snakes if you are prowling around...they are,too! And are they cranky!!!
  18. @cam_viney Thanks man! My happy place lol

  19. Great catch on the Christmas day. We're planning a few trip before the month ends, just need to finish the installation of anew set of tires and ion wheels on the truck. We're excited.
  20. Hope it is going to be a good season this year.
  21. It seems getting slower around here.
  22. Nice fishing report and impressive performance!
  23. Water temps are to cold right now. There are some red drum down around Hatteras NC.
