This past weekend I fished in the Cape Fear Inshore Classic and had a great time. We caught lots of fish, but unfortunately, most of them were too Big!!!

In two days of fishing, we released over 8 Redfish that were over the 27-inch slot limits. That's 8-10+ pound Redfish on light tackle in shallow water. If you want to catch one of the hard fighting brutes, now is the time. At one point, we had a school of 100+ 28"Redfish come up right beside the boat and immediately had multiple hook-ups and massive pandemonium.

I don't have many open dates through October, but I have a few.

Give me a call and let's go catch some fish!!!

Tight lines!!!
