5/1/11 A.M.-I had just
left the house to take the boat back to Hatteras when I got the
call that we have been waiting from THE FISHING FOOL. I
made a U-Turn, pulled back into the driveway and ran upstairs
to get my boy. He turned Bugs Bunny off, jumped off the
couch, and the two of us hauled you-know-what down to Oregon
Inlet. 8 Year Old-Henry(PHOTO) made up
for all the crummy fishing trips his dad had taken him on so
far this spring. He landed approximately 75
to 3 lbs.
Everyone of them came casting double rigs(PHOTO)
fish were all over the inlet with birds on them. Non-stop
said it was our best fishing trip ever(PHOTO)
