9-15-14 ...... MONDAY ...... FINALLY ...... COOLER! ......

The WATER TEMPERATURE went back up to 83* on FRIDAY, but we are back down to 81* this morning! ........... The cool-off has produced a KING MACKEREL! .......... Congratulations to RONNIE BURGESS (Mebane, NC)-- 27 lb. 8 oz. KING MACKEREL ............ DON CARTER (Swansboro, NC)-- 2 lb. 10 oz. PUPPY DRUM ............. JONISON RIVIERA (Jacksonville, NC)-- 2 lb. 3 oz. BLACK DRUM ............ CARLTON SULLIVAN (Swansboro, NC)-- 1 lb. 14 oz. FLOUNDER ............ DAVID SNEED (Sebastian, FL)-- 1 lb. 8 oz. FLOUNDER ........... and SHARON STROHBECK (Manassas, VA)-- 8 oz. POMPANO ............. BLUEFISH, SEA MULLET, SPOTS, SPANISH MACKEREL, and FLOUNDER have all been coming up this weekend, but they aren't blasting them like they should. ............. When you have a chance, check out the new LED lights on the pier; we have placed about 12 lights UNDER the pier all the way out including two at the end! ............. There is already a BUZZ about increased FLOUNDER catches, and SHAD for KING BAIT have been plentiful since we places the end lights! ............. Hopefully they will keep the GLASS MINNOWS and others around especially during the FALL SEASON! .......... Cross your fingers! ........... COOL this week, and it looks like a good fishing time! ........... COME ON DOWN! .............. MIKE STANLEY

It's a good thing as we approach FALL FISHING to have a cooler water temperature ............ WE were sitting at 83-84* for a while and now it has backed down to 81* (thanks Dr. Bogus!) ............ Fishing has been good with SPANISH MACKEREL, POMPANO, nice size FLOUNDER, SPOTS, and SEA MULLET! ........... It seems that the KINGS are eluding us again, but that will be short lived given this late in the season. .............. Congratulations to RON CASAJE (Greenville, NC)--23 lb. 4 oz.

Although the WATER TEMPERATURE is at 84* (thanks Dr. Bogus!), a cool-off is in store for the coast starting tonight and lasting thru Wednesday or Thursday.  Hopefully the cool snap will help to bring the water temp down; we sure don't need any STORM MAGNETS around here now! ............. Today is the last day to sign up for the BIP 2014 KING MACKEREL Tournament drawing, so be sure get in today! ............ Rainy spells today will bring Northerly winds, but they will be on the light side; GREAT PLUGGING WATER! ............... Come on down! .............. MIKE STANLEY

Just when we were beginning to think that the KING MACKEREL were taking a vacation, we pop up with one! .............. Congratulations to JIM 'AFLAC' LAIRSON (Peletier, NC)--24 lb. 8 oz. KING MACKEREL! caught THURSDAY! .......... To top it off, THURSDAY night was a blast with some of the nicest SEA MULLET and BLACK DRUM! ............. Our own CATHY WELLS (Peletier, NC) landed a 5 lb. 12 oz. PUPPY DRUM last night around 3 am! ............ The water temperature is still holding at 83*, the only thing making it bearable out is the nice SW wind! ............ POMPANO, SPANISH MACKEREL, CROAKERS, and BLUEFISH top out the list for now and that might spell a ROAD TRIP for y'all this WEEKEND! .............. Plenty of bait and chances of showers thru the weekend means DOG DAYS for us at the beach ............. FALL FISHING is AROUND THE CORNER! .............. Don't forget to sign up for the TOURNAMENT! ............. DRAWING is SEPTEMBER 8th! ........... SEE YOU SOON! ............... MIKE STANLEY

8-28-14 ...... FRIDAY ...... QUIET ON THE END! ......

I had a feeling that HURRICANE CRISTOBAL was going to mess up our streak of great KING FISHING......... It did! ....... Actually stopped dead is more like it! ..... There are plenty of waves for the surfers right now; I have been hesitant to put our bouys back out due to the Hurricane season, but unfortunately the only language that some surfers understand is a trip to the court house!  Respect is non existent when it comes to hurricane waves.  Unfortunately, there will be many tickets issued as soon as I replace the bouys in the ocean........... We are catching a few SEA MULLET, SPOTS, POMPANO, and the JUMPING MULLET are on the move! ....... Congratulations to  PAUL PARK (Winterville, NC)--2 lb. 4 oz. JACK CREVALLE .......... and MARIE CROOM (Kinston, NC)--1 lb. GRAY TROUT! .......... Labor Day weekend is coming fast..... Don't forget to sign up for the 2014 BIP King Mackerel Tournament! .......

8-25-14 ...... MONDAY ...... 8 KINGS and a BARRACUDA on SUNDAY! ......

I have to admit that I was a little nervous about a serious wind change, but Sunday proved that the fish are in here no matter what! ........... The KINGS were relentless for most of the day yesterday; it was fun to watch all of the lines being systematically moved around every time a KING would strike! .............. BLUEFISH and FLOUNDER, as well as SPANISH MACKEREL, KING MACKEREL, and plenty of LIZARDFISH for bait kept it all interesting! .............. Congratulations to FELIPE VASQUEZ (Goldsboro, NC)--31 lb. 15 oz. KING MACKEREL ............. DANNY GLOVER (Emerald Isle, NC)--25 lb. 12 oz. BARRACUDA  & 23 lb. 2 oz. KING MACKEREL  &  20 lb. 10 oz.

I spoke with "FAST EDDIE" ANDREWS and he was summing up the catches on the pier ............. 39 KING MACKEREL and 8 COBIA landed so far this year! ............ WOW! ......... That's much better than I even thought! .............. The tropics are heating up, but it looks like TS CRISTOBAL will most likely run up between Hatteras and Bermuda on THURSDAY ................ SEE YOU SOON! ..............  MIKE STANLEY

Fishing activity is getting interesting! .............  Thursday on the end was much improved; BOBBY TYNDAL lost a KING first, then LEE BASS landed a 25 lb.

We are seeing SEA MULLET, SPANISH MACKEREL, and a few FLOUNDER during the daylight hours! .............. There are good sized schools of MENHEDEN running the beach and that is most likely the reason for the flurry. ............ One good point of reason is there have been a lot of Menhaden schools this season, and that doesn't seem to be diminishing............ 81* WATER TEMPERATURE and a nice weekend forecast with partly sunny skies and light winds ......... This might be a good one ............

8-10-14 ...... SUNDAY ...... RAIN TODAY, but FISH are HERE! ......

After a couple of really slow days, yesterday seemed to be more seasonal with SEA MULLET, POMPANO, and SPOTS, SPANISH MACKEREL; not to mention that it would have been a great PINFISH TOURNAMENT WEEK! .......... SPANISH MACKEREL were reported in the surf last night; there seems to be some interest in the GLASS MINNOWS that are skating the water's edge! .............. The FLOUNDER have been challenging; just be sure you have plenty of GULP! ................  Congratulations to PETE RESUGGAN (Peletier, NC)--4 lb. 15 oz. PUPPY DRUM ................. MITCH METRZ (Jacksonville, NC)--1 lb. 13 oz. JACK CREVALLE ................ ALEX WALKER (Reidsville, NC)--1 lb. 9 oz. FLOUNDER ............... BRUCE CARTEAUX (Jacksonville, NC)--1 lb. 5 oz. POMPANO ............... and GUSTANO GUERRERO (Charlotte, NC)--FIRST FISH! (Pinfish are good for something!) ............. The WATER TEMPERTURE is up to 82* and we will probably have good surf conditions for continued bottom fishing early week ............. TAKE A BREAK ............. COME ON DOWN! .................
