7-15-14 ...... TUESDAY ...... PICKING UP a BIT! ......

The SUMMER SEASON has peaked, and the WATER TEMPERATURE is up to 83* (thanks Dr. Bogus!) ............. It's been so incredibly humid during the day with a health breeze, but many of our visitors are choosing to come out during the early morning and evening just to beat the heat! .............. POMPANO, SPOTS, SEA MULLET, PIN FISH, and even a few SPANISH MACKEREL are being landed ........... I have even heard of a SMALL COBIA, but it seems to be undersized. ............... Congratulations to CHIP WINDHAM (Pleasant Garden, NC)--1 lb. 8 oz. POMPANO ............... ASHLEY TAYLOR (Chocowinity, NC)--1 lb. 7 oz. POMPANO .............. 'LEROY' FAULKNER (Clinton, NC)--1 lb. POMPANO ............... CARSON RICO (South Riding, VA)--14 oz. SEA MULLET ............ and JOSEPH LONG (Jesup, GA)--FIRST FISH! .............  It is just a good time to pop in for the day and wet a line and forget the world for a while! ........... The beach is absolutely beautiful now and there is a good turnout of both tourists and locals alike ................ It sure would be nice to see a KING MACKEREL or TWO! ............  We witnessed the "SUPER MOON on Saturday night; it was absolutely HUGE! ............. I'm sure glad that we had already fired the JULY 4th show! ............. Sorry for the slower reports, but it's SUMMER, and everything is so predictable! ................ There is a COLD FRONT coming tomorrow evening and it will bring some rougher conditions. ............. Maybe we can stir up the bottom! ........... SEE YOU SOON! .............. MIKE STANLEY

7-8-14 ...... TUESDAY ...... FINALLY ... BACK to NORMAL! ......

What a crazy weekend! .............. After preparing for a fast moving little stinger Hurricane named ARTHUR on Thursday night, and then JULY 4th clean-up and FIREWORKS on Friday, plus slammed business for the weekend, things are NORMAL! ............ Just after the storm, the water was so muddy that it looked like the MISSISSIPPI.............. That slowed fishing to a crawl, but now with almost clear GREEN-BLUE water, we are CATCHING FISH again! ............. Congratulations to GARRETT CARTER (Clinton, NC) with a Catch & Release TARPON (est. 85 lbs.!) ............. JONISON RIVERA (Jacksonville, NC)--5 lb. 1 oz. PUPPY DRUM ...............

We are so happy that fishing has picked up and a balmy 82* (thanks D. Bogus!) ................. Special thanks to Rosanna and her crew from EAST COAST PYROTECHNICS  for a flawless FIREWORKS SHOW on Friday night! ................ The show will always be memorable because EVERY SHELL fired, which is almost unheard of! ............... Also, thanks to the TOWN of Emerald Isle for all of their logistical help in producing such a fine show. ..............Special thanks to FRANK RUSH, Town Manager, for a really good call on the whole HURRICANE situation; especially keeping the fireworks (and the whole July 4th schedule) so close to the mark!  Frank was determined not to disrupt the vacations of so many thousands of visitors! ............. GOOD JOB! ...............  Well ............ We're BACK TO NORMAL! ............ COME ON DOWN! ............. MIKE STANLEY

7-3-14 ...... THURSDAY ...... IT'S a HURRICANE! ......

The wind and torrential rain is upon us as I write this report; we have been slammed with not only one of the biggest Holiday Weekends, but a nice little FREIGHT TRAIN running through our living room! ............ We closed the pierhouse at 5:00 PM this afternoon and will hopefully re-open around 8:00 AM on FRIDAY, JULY 4th! ............ Reluctant to slow the momentum of such a large Holiday crowd; especially those who have worked so hard to enjoy their vacation; the Town of Emerald Isle is anxious to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. Hopefully, we will wake to some pleasant calming seas and beautiful beach! ............... At this writing, the JULY 4th Fireworks are still on schedule for FRIDAY EVENING at 9:00 PM barring any unusual circumstances.  Fishing has been put on hold for a couple of days because of the rough seas and strong currents............ Congratulations to GOVERNOR CARTER (Maysville, NC)--3 lb. 8 oz. SPANISH MACKEREL .............. and MATTHEW WIGGS (Selma, NC)--PINFISH (First Fish!) ........... Not much to report, hopefully tomorrow will be the same way (at least for a few hours!) ................ Opening at 8:00 AM tomorrow ................ Hope to see you soon! ................

It's hard to believe that we are already at the 1/2 point of the summer season! ............... Absolutely beautiful weather today and other than a good rain stormon Saturday, it was a pretty good weekend, too! ................ The WATER TEMPERATURE is 83* right now (thanks Dr. Bogus!), and that is starting to heat up the Tropics just enough to make us nervous for the upcoming HOLIDAY WEEKEND! ............ Fishing has been good for this time of year; PUPPY DRUM, BLUEFISH, SPOTS, SEA MULLET, POMPANO, SPANISH MACKEREL, and FLOUNDER have been coming up all weekend! ............... Congratulations to JONISON RIVERA (Jacksonville, NC)--5 lb. 6 oz. PUPPY DRUM ............... DON DELARIA (New Bern, NC)--4 lb. 14 oz PUPPY DRUM ................ JACK CODY (Emerald Isle, NC)--COOLER of SPOTS ............... CONNER RIGGS (Cove City, NC)--SPOT (First Fish!) ............... and ELI LEWIS (Cayton, NC)--CROAKER (First Fish!) ................ We are watching the weather closely, and will keep you updated as to our conditions at the pier. .............. Usually fishing has a direct impact based on the weather, as is most of Mother Nature! ............... We sometimes see a boost in fish numbers as a Tropical System approaches! ............. Don't forget that the Annual BIP July 4th FREE FISHING DAY will start at 6:00 AM on Friday, July 4th, and last until 12:00 noon. .............. Then, after the FIREWORKS SHOW on the pier is cleared, we will allow everyone to fish until 6:00 AM on Saturday morning! ............... HAVE FUN; there sure are a lot of people around these parts! .................. MIKE STANLEY

Pretty predictable fishing; we have had a great weekly vacationer turnout and the beach is absolutely beautiful ............ It's what can you expect for almost JULY 4th! .................. Speaking of JULY 4th ............ We only have just over a week for the annual FREE FISHING DAY on JULY 4th! ........... Plan on being here for free fishing until 12:00 noon and then from approx. 11:00 pm until 6 am SATURDAY MORNING! ............. Let's hope the fishing stays good! ........... SEE YOU SOON! ..........

Lightning hit the pier on Friday morning, causing a great deal of lighting and electronic damage, including all of our computers and phone system! ........... Sorry for the interruption in the cam and reports; we are working on the problem .............. We have had a relatively good turnout since the last report; SPOTS, nice sized SPANISH MACKEREL, SEA MULLET, a few POMPANO, BLUEFISH, and even a COBIA! ........... The WATER TEMPERATURE is up to 79* (thanks Dr. Bogus) and we have been dodging the normal T-shower drill (we don't see a lot of the rain and storms that happen just across the bridge!) ...............

We are creeping up on JULY 4th (hard to believe), and it's time to plan your trip to see the TOWN of EMERALD ISLE and BOGUE INLET PIER JULY 4th FIREWORKS! ........... Remember, fishing is free on JULY 4th but we will be closing the pier at NOON to prepare for the show.  FREE FISHING will resume after the clean-up about 11:00 PM until 6:00 AM on July 5th.  ...............

6-18-14 ...... WEDNESDAY ...... TAKE A KID FISHING was a GREAT SUCCESS!

It was hot at the beach yesterday, but that didn't stop an absolutely fantastic turnout at BIP! .............. For those who aren't familiar with TAKF, we help provide underprivileged children a place to come to the beach to fish and just have a wonderful time away from their normal environment. ............ There are different venues such as Charter Boats, Head Boats, and fishing piers in the Crystal Coast Area. .............. Many thanks to all of the volunteers that help with all of the guidance and logistics to make this charity one of the largest growing in Eastern North Carolina! ................. Fishing was not super co-operative yesterday, although they did catch some SPOTS, SEA MULLET, and PIN FISH to keep the tournament interesting! ................ Please understand, many of the participants have never been on a fishing pier, or even to the coast, so even a small fish was a thrill! ............ SPANISH MACKEREL and BLUEFISH have been coming up on the end, but overall it has been quiet. .............. Hopefully we will have a more in-depth report in the next day or so! ............ Thanks, and see you soon! ................... MIKE STANLEY

6-9-14 ...... MONDAY ...... A QUIET FISHING WEEKEND! ......

We had a real good turnout this weekend; plenty of fishermen looking for that SPANISH MACKEREL or COBIA ........... But the water was muddy from that last storm which had the ocean churned up like a washing machine (last Thursday) ............. Bottom fishing was decent; there were PUPPY DRUM, POMPANO, BLUEFISH, SEA MULLET, and SPOTS with a few FLOUNDER! ............ Congratulations to CHRIS JOHNSON (Danville, VA)--5 lb. 2 oz.

I was speaking to one of our regulars on the end; STEVE ELLSWORTH; and he said he saw the NANCY LEE Charter Boat unloading a couple of KING MACKEREL at the dock in Swansboro! ............... Wow, that's a good sign, considering the WATER TEMPERATURE is a balmy 77* (thanks Dr. Bogus!) .............. Scattered showers ahead for the week, but comfortable temperatures will prevail .............. COME ON DOWN and grab a SPANISH MACKEREL! .................. MIKE STANLEY

It's hard to believe that it's MAY! .............. After a quite volatile weather pattern this week, we are looking for a really nice sunny and warm weekend! ..............

Thanks, Pete! ............. They have been slamming the BLUEFISH with RED/WHT, CHARTREUSE/WHT, RED/SILVER, and WHT/WHT GOTCHA PLUGS! ............. If you have never had the opportunity to plug, I suggest you give it a try .............. Tons of Fun! ............. The best thing about plugging is the chance that you will land a FAT SPANISH MACKEREL! ............... A lightweight rod & reel with under 10 lb. test line will definitely give you a fishing experience! ............ Especially when you hook up with a 3-4 lb. SPANISH MACKEREL or BLUEFISH (or how about a 10 lb. ALBACORE!) ............ Warm water, and beautiful beaches ............ COME ON DOWN! ................. SEE YOU SOON! ...............
