They could show anytime at the beginning of September...and peaks sometime around the end of September and drops off the very beginning of October...but you never really know.

I will wait for the mullet to show 1st, then a good NE 2nd and then start seeing what the pups do...., but I am thinking about it already and stockpiling rigs!

Need to pour some more lead as well!:3gears:

definitely a different start to it south of the bay, up here it is spawn related down there more food and migration back to OBX.

Getting started up here on reels, rigs etc myself.
