Our Fishing Report

 Well, not to much to report except we are having a good time and just happy to be able to fish on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Ronnie has been surfing several times.  He has caught flounder, bluefish, sea mullet and speckled trout.  Unfortunately all the fish (except the bluefish and we didn't want those) were too small to keep per the 2014 NC Saltwater Fishing Regulations.

No red drum yet but we have had nice weather for November.

One of the nice opportunities full-time RV traveling offers is the ability to reconnect with family and friends you have not seen in a while.  I knew my college roommate and sorority sister, Geri and her husband Larry, lived in Kill Devil Hills.  I contacted her and we picked up right where we left off!  We have had a great time catching up and reminiscing about our college days.
We were invited by Geri and Larry to go fishing out on their boat.  Larry knew several good fishing places and he took us to some of his favorites.  We had a great time but we only caught crabs on this trip.  That's how it is sometimes with fishing..

Now my brother John had much better luck surf fishing.  His fishing team competed in the 57th Annual Invitational Surf Fishing Tournament sponsored by the Cape Hatteras Anglers Club.  They placed 19th out of 119 teams.  They caught a variety of fish within size regulations including a "keeper" red drum.

We still have plenty of time to get back out on the surf and try for that illusive red drum.
  Until then, we will continue to explore and enjoy all that the Outer Banks has to offer.
More later.

  1. Sorry to hear you're fishing luck is less than stellar :) Ronnie looked a little cold out there all bundled up!

    It's so fun to reconnect with old friends. Enjoy!
