11/19 – BIG SPECKS, PUPS, Flatties and Albies…

Today was a great day, with some great company – I took out Steve and Rett of New Bern – offshore fisherman who are really wanting to learn the ways of the inshore fisherman. Steve was stoked about learning to catch speckled trout as well as some puppy drum – if the conditions allowed.

Well, the weather was beautiful and the fish were biting – every hole we tried produced nice fat trout, fiesty 16-17inch puppy drum and a lot of nice little bonus flounder. Over six hours, we caught close to 40 specks, a half dozen pups and a bunch of short flounder (just one keeper). All three of us managed an inshore slam with room to spare – and we never had to change lures. All fish were caught on the old standby – a green grub. Gotta love ’em! In addition, after tearing up the trout, on the way to the Cape Lookout jetty we quickly caught a nice albacore – but the jetty wasn’t happening today (and hasnt been lately). Live shrimp produced giant hogfish and citation pins and very small trout – so we went back to my other holes. Don’t leave biting fish to find other fish!

Half the specks were in the 2-3lb range with a couple getting close to 4lbs – the rest were 15-18inches. We kept eight specks for dinner.

Great company today – and I look forward to seeing Steve in the future for some WINTER STRIPER ACTION (as well as kings and flounder, in the future!)!!!!
