Nah, between her work, her college and the kids classes we only had 3 weeks to choose from. One was the 4th of july and try to get a place in the obx like we wanted on this short notice was impossible, one was the last week before school and it was all booked... Im surprised I was able to get this one week. Now, if the Gods of fishing are good to me we will have the smallie show the last weekend of july. Count me in if that happens!!

PS-BTW, she thinks y'all are alright but she is not a crowd person. The only crowd she stands is at the local honky tonk.

Guys, dont forget im not shy with a spinning rod, actually, the gf says she wants to do some fishing and she would be using a spinning rod. I will take advised for both!


Fernando, Your regular freshwater Bass type spinnin' gear (10-20# test, with 100-200 yards of line) will work in the surf for most bites, eating and fun for yer GF sized fish. Carolina rigs with 1-3oz or more egg sinkers using shrimp, squid for bait. Size #4 to 1/0 hooks.

If you have bigger spinnin' gear (30#+ with 300 or more yards). Use whole fresh fish or a stingray wing and a 3/0 or better hook. The bites might be slower on the big rig... Carry extra line as it is not rare to be spooled when fishin' from the Beach...

Hope this helps 'til Johnny Wonderful can chime in...

Ain't Life Grand!!!
