It’s Waterfowl Time!!!

It’s that time of year again!!  Another Thank You to all of our anglers for a fantastic fishing season!!!  We wrapped up October with a few final Tuna trips, an awesome short duck season (quickie 4 days in October), a last minute trip out west to get our minds right for feathers, and final (never ending lol) prep for the DUCKS!!!  The November season has started and will wrap up after Thanksgiving… then the big season is here!! A huge Thank You to our groups so far – always a blast and always so much fun to kick off waterfowl season with you guys!  We will be back to fishing in the Spring… Remember inland fishing for ROCKFISH cranks up in the Spring and we will start chasing COBIA in May!!  Happy November to all!!!

Spring Turkey

Spring Turkey Season is here!!!  The Youth get to enjoy the first week and it is so nice to see kids out in the environment – no iPad, no phones, no videos… just mother nature and wildlife.  Quality time spent in the outdoors with family is invaluable and often short lived as our kids grow up incredibly fast.  We are so very thankful to be a part of it all.  An enormous CONGRATULATIONS to our Abbie!!  Weeks of target practice and mounting excitement all paid off.  No blind or cover…. she has never sat this still in all her 6 years.  Dad was shaking like a leaf with excitement and Abigail simply whispered “I got this”… 11 1/2 inch beard, 1 1/4 inch spurs, 20.3 lbs; one shot… a trophy for anyone and extraordinarily special for our young lady… Nice work kiddo 🙂

Ducks!

The word of the day is DUCKS!!  Things have been busy busy the last 2 months… never-ending prep work and upkeep to get ready for the big season bearing down on us Saturday (it’s almost here!), the short season (a HUGE thank you to our early crowd… always a blast!), and trips out to the central flyway.  One of the highlights of our year is to start the season by heading out west to see lots of great old friends and make fantastic new ones… A part of the country where the scenery is breath taking, the duck activity unbelievable, and the people incredible.  A piece of true America…Faith, Family, and Community are forefront and the friends are priceless.  We are always so thankful to get back there and spend some time.   And now back to business….We’re geared up and ready to get to it this season!  The weather is ducky and the birds are flying… can’t wait to see everyone!

Last Day in Hatteras….

Beautiful day on the ocean..nice class of gaffer dolphins and a few boilers.Thanks for the great time guys.Cobia tomorrow if there not all cut n half.

Hatteras Update

The Fistful headed to Hatteras Village chasing the fish!!  We have been fortunate to enjoy some fantastic fishing with great groups!  Dolphin fishing has been off the hook with the bonus of an “almost” grand slam – caught 1 white, jumped off a sail, and had a blue one in the spread on the way south last week!  The Cobia fishing has been hopping as well with plenty of mackerel and bluefish to play with while looking for the big fish.  Our internet access is sketchy at best down there so here’s a quick picture update from some of the last week’s trips…  🙂  Thanks everybody!!!

 

End of another season…

Well after two years Martin Mcnally returns back down east to hunt with us… He picked up right were he left off scoring first thing this morning with a great strutter..What a great hunt.  This one was going to be ten yards from us when he got the smack down.  What a great season.  Always sad to see turkey season go away.  It’s what spring is all about..We ended on a high note for sure.  We are happy to say we had a one hundred percent success rate for all of our hunters this year.. This is Martin closing out our year.. LETS GO FISHING! !!
