Fished "The Point" on the outer banks sunday and monday. About 600+ trucks on the beach! That was a sight. I saw one cobia caught by Ted and weighing in at 58 lbs. I saw several butterfly rays, small sharks, blues up to 10 pounds, and DRUM. The drum bit good on the point on sunday night. I got my first one but no one would help me measure it since they were busy fishing. It was estimated between 38-43". Some of the long casters could reach the fish good and kept hooking up. I left at 10:30 and when I returned I asked Tres how many he got nad he replied " I stopped counting at 10, I had one on every bait except the last." Anyways, good trip. might go down in 2 weeks again.

Steve - don't know any details. Just a pic I stumbled upon in the P&S gallery. I'm sure it was referenced in a post somewhere, but haven't found that to know the story behind it.

Personally - I HATE crowds of any size. Some of the pics I've seen of the OBX scene are off the charts.... I don't like fishing alone but even more - I don't like crowds - just want to fish with a few friends and relax - not try elbow my way in for a few square inches of water.....

There has got to be somewhere in OBX that isn't crowded....

Doesn't there????

I wouldn't mind driving 15-20 miles of beach to get in the clear.

It is only that crowded in the picture because there is no where elso for them to go. It was a lot less packed on the beach. Rods were spread out and everything.

I am willing to bet that that is Little Island Pier (sandbridge) just south of VA Beach last fall. They had an outstanding Fall for drum. I don't think I want to fish there, they close at like 10 p.m. or something like that.
