Jolly Roger Report and Kayak Fishing Group

Fishing Topsail Message BoardTopsail Area Charter Boats2009 NC Recreational Coastal Waters Guide

Hello from Topsail Beach. A few things this morning. First was my fishing outing at Jolly Roger Pier yesterday. This is really the first chance I have had to spend much time on the pier this season. I had such a wonderful time chatting to my old and new fishin' friends. To my new fishin' friend Ken, I really enjoyed our conversations about pier fishing, bait fish, and netting. Hope you have a safe trip home to your family. We caught several nice blues on gotcha plugs, and a bunch of smaller ones. I witnessed a bluefish catch on a diamond jig with gold hooks along the leader. (spanish rig?) The blue ate one of the gold hooks. I personally didn't catch any bottom fish, as I spent most of my time throwing a gotcha and chatting to my fishing neighbors, but I did see some nice virginia mullet brought over the rails, not a huge number, but nice keepers just the same. I heard stories of fast and furious "catching" Friday after midnight. I saw a picture of a cooler (thanks Chris at East Coast Sports in Surf City) that was at least half filled with mullets. I heard of a group of friends that caught over two hundred mullets in just a couple of hours. Day time fishing, especially surf fishing, is not great right now, but I see it getting great in the very near future. Thanks to everyone at Jolly Roger Inn and Pier for makiing my fishing day so enjoyable. I am looking forward to many more this season.

Now on to the part of the post about the kayak fishing group.

    Johnny, it was a good feeling meeting you and talking "fish" stories. I still want to find or create the book about fishing the coast based on "ole timers" experience with subject. I still can't believe there were no blues in that large school of menhaden we saw cruise by the tip of the pier going north/east! I look forward new fishin adventures.
