Took my father fishing this past Friday in downtown Wilmington. He caught this nice 25lb blue catfish. I went the weekend before and filled the livewell with 15 to 25 lbers. Bite was a little slower Friday, I guess due to all the rain, but it was still a great day on the water with the old man.
Went catfishing this past Friday night with my buddy, on the cape fear river in Bladen County. Pulled an all-nighter, using rod and reel. 1st bite was one to remember, caught a 20 plus pound striper,on a bream, hated to throw him back!!! Caught 12 cats, the biggest being close to 30 lbs. Had a few close to 20lbs. Missed quite a few, but it was a great night, 1st of many to come I'm sure. A pontoon boat makes a world of difference for night fishing.
(Pictures are not great, off of my cell phone, next time I will take a real camera!!)
Went turkey hunting yesterday evening in Pender County with my father. First time we have tried late in the day. Set up in a field and started to call. Had a hen come in after only a few minutes. She hung around for almost an hour, and I was too busy wathcing her when all of a sudden I looked to my left out of the blind and there were three toms standing less than 10 yards from me. They never made a sound, but they knew something wasn't right, looking straight at my blind. They quickly turned and left the field before I could ever get my gun up. About an hour later, just before sunset, had two bigger toms make it accross the field as well, but they crossed out of range and would not come to the decoys. Exciting hunt, even without a kill.
Went hunting this morning with my father in Pender County. Called in two toms. This one was the bigger of the two, and he was going straight to the decoys. He was just starting to strut when I shot him at about 12 yards. 9.5 inch beard.
My father shot this 200lb (approx) hog yesterday hunting on private property in Brunswick County. He has killed quite a few bigger ones, but this appears to be his average size.
Went catfishing yesterday with my buddy. Caught some nice blue cats near downtown Wilmington.
Killed this one this evening in Pender County. Saw a few smaller bucks before he came in. Needless to say, didnt's see another one after him.
