Two weeks on ocracoke

9 posts in this topic

well, just returned from a fishing trip to ocracoke island, caught some nice reds, 47", 44", 2 at 38", and numerous pups, a few speckeled trout, flounder, pompino, black drum, and too many blue fish to count, also lots of large butterfly rays in excess of 100 lbs. most of the trip the weather was in the 80 to 90's, no rain !

caught finger and cigar mullet with the net for bait. oct 12 had a run of reds at nite, saw probably 100 large fish put on the beach. now i'm ready for the return of the stripers to ai.

oh for dave and general, hooked several huge sharks, but either got spooled or rubbed off.

Clamped the Panasonic camcorder to a hatch cover and went fishing,carry extra batteries.On a center console I use a Canon d-10 (waterproof camera) clamped to railing.Most still cameras have a timer setting so you can have 10 seconds to get in the picture,and also takes video.[video=youtube;BD6WhoIVEj4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BD6WhoIVEj4

clamp looks like a great gizmo, if your close to your vehicle. most of the time while surf fishing the outer banks, i find myself far from my truck, and standing in knee to waist deep rough surf. unless you have a fishing partner or friend close by, it takes tooo long to get your camera and pose for the shot.

i don't like to keep a fish out of the water much longer than i can hold my breath. that way the fish can be revived and released to fight another day. just my way of doing it. i have seen too many large fish dragged up on the beach, carried to a truck for pics, and measurements, and then did not survive the release, just floated away on their side. a sad waste of a great trophy.
