All the family is back safe and sound from the quick trip to North Carolina and my cousins wedding. We stayed in the Mooresville area and had a beautiful house right on lake Norman. Our schedules were filled with non stop family visits, dinners, etc... BUT, when there's a chance to fish I always do. My brother and I did sneak down to the lake for 20 minutes, tied on a watermelon zoom trick worm and caught a couple bass. Jeff caught one decent fish, we gave a high five and went back to the family events. A fun trip, great wedding service and a beautiful area... Capt. Dan

Tarpon Eats....

The wind and rain has had the best of us the last couple of days and has not allowed me to get to the outside tarpon grounds. However, there are always some juvenile tarpon in the river and we have been targeting them. Rick and Joe joined me the last couple of days and we gave it our best to run to the flats, but mother nature wouldn't let us do so. So, for plan B, we worked some areas in the river and had some great fun throwing the fly at some smaller tarpon. Bob had several tarpon eat the fly, but these little guys are sure tough to get a hook to stick in. It's neat to watch them, as they act like their larger family members and it's great practice in presenting a fly properly. Eventually, the wind got so strong we fished the creeks in the bay and found a large mouth bass and some jacks to bend the rod. A fun couple of days and I thoroughly enjoyed the days with you both...

NE Blues....

Yes folks, it was a tough one today. I had my good client Mike on board in hopes of finding a couple grouper, but due to the lousy conditions; it just wasn't meant to be. We began today's trip fishing the river and caught a nice snook and missed a few other to get the day going. We also picked up a healthy large mouth bass on a jerk bait in the brackish water as a pleasant bonus. The NE wind was howling, but we did give grouper trolling a try and not even one taker to show for our efforts. The water was extremely dirty and trolling in the white caps wasn't any fun. On the way back inshore, we caught a couple trout to end the day and we'll have to give those grouper a try again some time. Thanks again Mike for a good day and look forward to fishing again soon...
