    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
  2. 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.

    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/

    Winter Carp!

    Good luck on the Carp. Tons of those things in Smith Mountain Lake, but that would be a long drive for carp! Merry Christmas to BA!
  8. Did some out of town fishing this week on Emerald Isle. Picked up this nice Sheepshead. 10.55 lbs. Length 22 inches, girth 20 inches. Using live shrimp under a popping cork. Also caught several puppy drum, and a lot of short fish.

    Thanks for post reports BA.
  10. Wanted everyone to know one of our all time best VBSF forum contributors passed away. Thank you for sharing so many great fish stories George. You packed a lot of living into your 55 years. You will be missed. RIP. https://www.facebook.com/george.golinski.7
  11. Sorry but not sure how reliable this is. It's all I have. It's typical for this time of the year. CHINCOTEAGUE - Flounder action is good, with limit catches being made in the main channel, between Capt. Bob's and Tommy's Place, in the deeper holes. Croaker and sea bass are showing in the catches. Surf anglers are catching sea mullet and pan trout.
  12. Congratulations Bob and crew ... great day!! Now take that money and buy some nice new tackle!
  13. I'm guessing one of the car washes in the area would let you connect to their spicket if you washed your boat there?
