4-18-16 ...... MONDAY ...... GOOD FISHING WEEKEND! ......

It was really cool on the pier this weekend; the WATER TEMPERATURE has dropped to 56* (thanks Dr. Bogus)! .............. I guess if it gets any cooler we'll be scraping ice off of the pilings! ........... Just kidding ............. There is a really drastic warm-up coming this week and that should change the amount of fishermen on our pier! ........... Congratulations to TIM HINES (Simms, NC)-- 1 lb. 5 oz. POMPANO ............... NUI VINSON (Jacksonville, NC)-- COOLER of SEA MULLET .............. JONISON RIVERA (Williamsburg, VA)-- COOLER of SEA MULLET ............. and WILL YAWN (Raleigh, NC)-- 1 lb. 5 oz. BLOWFISH! ............ The good eating fish are still coming up at the pier; they are using SHRIMP and FISH BITES (Artificial BLOODWORMS)! .............. Be sure to use reasonably small hooks and small pieces of bait for these bottom feeders ............. You can't swallow a whole steak at on time and these fish can't swallow 1/2 of a shrimp, either! .............. Looking forward to way more SPRING-LIKE WEATHER! ............. COME ON DOWN! ............ MIKE STANLEY

Lots of BLUEFISH to compliment the SEA MULLET and BLOWFISH are coming in! ............ It's a breezy N-NE wind through the weekend which will keep the ocean relatively flat ....... perfect for GOTCHA PLUGS and BLUEFISH! ............ Congratulations to JOE LEO & our good friend "88 Year Old" PETE LEO (Emerald Isle, NC)-- BLUES & SEA MULLET ............ MIKE & MARILYN JONES (Phenix, VA)-- COOLER of BLOWFISH & SEA MULLET ............... and LEWIS COBLE (Greenville, NC)-- 1 lb. 14 oz. BLUEFISH!  ............... Be sure to dress warm because of the brisk North winds today; the WATER TEMPERATURE is down to 57* (thanks Dr. Bogus!) and we should see a warm-up as soon as the wind shifts back to the prevalent SW! ............. We are NOW OPEN 24/7 for the season, so plan a trip down any time of day or night! ........... We are tweeking the new WEB CAM; the response has been overwhelming and so it's taking a lot of thought and exploring technical options. Our goal is to give you a quality picture that won't break our backs as far as broadband costs; today we will be working on a more efficient way to keep the cam as informative as possible! ........... Please bear with us............ Special thanks to BRAD PUMPHREY with EASTBAYMEDIA.COM for his help in keeping a quality STREAMING VIDEO that is reasonable and tech-savvy for all of us to enjoy! ................. SEE YOU SOON! ............. MIKE STANLEY
