Jolly Roger Fishing Report

Hello from Surf City! I finally got back to the salt water today. Dad and I fished Jolly Roger Pier. The weather was a little overcast, wind at about 15 to 25 mph, and COLD!!! Dad caught one black drum and then nothing for a couple of hours. The bite started and didn't slow until we left. We kept 16 of the best black drum, and gave the rest away. It was just too cold to clean fish. We also caught two nice chopper blues. The blues are in the fridge marinating with Texas Pete and apple juice. There were several two pound plus whiting caught, and a few small puffers. We lost count of how many baby flounder were caught but the water was full of them. The flounder were all about 8 to 10 inches. We are going back tomorrow am. I will post when we return. Felt good to be on the pier.

Till next time....
Tight lines!

Topsail Island, A Short History

Local folklore claims the name, Topsail (pronounced Tops’ul), dates back to the 1700s when pirate ships roamed the coastal waters. The pirates hid their ships in the channels behind the island and waited to plunder passing merchant ships loaded with goods. Eventually the merchants became aware of this hiding place and began to watch for the tops of the pirates' sails peeking above the oak trees on the island — hence the name Topsail Island.
