DUCKS in the morning and ROCKFISH in the afternoon! With the incredible weather it was possible to fire the little boat out today. The net boats took a break and the bite was on full force… over 30 catch and release in an hour and 15 minutes and then a nice limit to bring home… Pretty work John and Matt!! So nice to have these fish so close this year.
These guys had a Northeastern North Carolina grand slam this week!! DUCKS, DEER, and now ROCKFISH to finish up the trip! They’ve been hard at it today…up and in a duck blind before dawn and were tough enough to fire out this afternoon to chase down some nice rockfish… for a crowd that has never reeled in much more than a nice river bass – they did an amazing job! Thank you so much Steve, Derek, and Phillip!! We loved meeting you all and we’ll see you in March!! AO
This is the time of year the Fistful boat gets a little rest while Karl spends most of his time on the water pursuing a different variety of North Carolina’s wildlife. Duck Season is here and is proving to be a bountiful one so far. The migration to the south is up and running and fortunately we are seeing the results of all the cold weather hitting our friends up north. Teal (Green Wing mostly plus a few Blue Wing), Widgeon, Wood Ducks, Mallards, Pintail, Ringnecks, Gadwal, Merganser, Canvasbacks and more are all here…(in addition to tons of Swan and Geese.) A few days are still left (but not many) for December and January.. pictures and information can be found on our “facebook” page under “Albemarle Outfitters”. (The hunting website is still under construction… :/ ) Please feel free to call, text, or email with any questions or for booking information!
