  Have started fishing
.  Been having to work for it with the Stripers in the sound.  Numbers have been down but the size(PHOTO) has been up.  Either way, everything is getting ready to bust wide open with warming temperatures.  The Yellow boat-YELLER FELLER(PHOTO) is on the trailer and has been bouncing back and forth between Oregon Inlet and the Sound Striper docks.  Blue Boat which is now the Back In Black has a new motor and will be ready to roll next week.  Hopefully the Cobia start showing up May 1 when the season opens.  We are not missing that this year.  You can now also follow what we have been catching on Instagram at beachbumfishingobx.  I have been a little better at quickly updating that.  But, I am going to try this to get back to keeping this ancient site rolling.  Enough of the jibber-jabber and onto fishing.  There have been some Redfish/Red Drum/Puppy Drum(whatever you want to call them) showing up in the waters around inlet.  And, some Speckled Trout too.  Black Drum, Tautog, Sea Bass, and Dog Sharks are available inside and outside the waters of Oregon Inlet.  All will show back up with warmer water temperatures.  Here we go with photos(follow Instagram beachbumfishingobx for more up-to-date photos) and as always, THANK YOU to the following people for coming out fishing and putting up with me!  1/1/2021-HAPPY NEW YEAR!  We kicked off the New Year with a bang.  They surprised us this afternoon with a great bite(PHOTO).  Three double-headers(PHOTO) (PHOTO) in a row to start things.  One guy, 15 fish later, we came in early.  12/31/20- Had to really work for it again today.  Got pretty rank late this morning.  Almost unfishable.  Great effort by the Viking crew(PHOTO) (PHOTO)!  Slick calm, no current, rain, and fog in the afternoon.  Another great effort by the soggy socks crew(PHOTO)12/30/20- Had to work for it today, but we ended up with some good ones(PHOTO)12/27/20- It was a bloodbath today(PHOTO) (PHOTO).  Lots of fish and big ones up to just short of 10 lbs.(PHOTO)12/23/20- They made us wait until the bitter end, but we finally got them(PHOTO) (PHOTO).  Thanks guys for your patience!  11/27/20- (PHOTO) (PHOTO)  11/25/20- Fishing was unreal.  We landed over 40 fish and had some bigguns today(PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO)11/24/20- (PHOTO)  11/22/20- (PHOTO)  11/16/20- (PHOTO)  11/15/20- (PHOTO)  11/13/20- Return of the Leaning Star after a 15 year hiatus with fish up to 27 inches(PHOTO) (PHOTO)! 11/7/20- (PHOTO)  11/6/20- (PHOTO)  11/5/20- (PHOTO)  11/4/20- (PHOTO)  11/2/20- (PHOTO)  If you ever wanted a custom made Outer Banks Fishing Rod, local Nathan Pruitt of Hand Tide Stix can do it.  Goto to to get up with him.  Nathan keeps the rods going on my boat.  He can make you a super-stud custom rod.  Check out when you get a chance.  When I am not fishing, this is what I am doing.  Something looks familiar.
Aboard THE BEACH BUM I prefer to have you casting and jigging bucktails, Swim Baits, FIN-S', spoons, plugs, or live baiting over trolling.  If we can catch them casting or on live bait that is how we will do it unless you prefer trolling.  Bear in mind, some days we  have to suck it up and troll.  We land our fish on the lightest tackle that we can get away ith.  Aboard THE BEACH BUM there is no mate.  YOU GET TO SET THE HOOK ON YOUR FISH instead of a mate setting the hook and handing you the rod.

 For those of you that went on one of  the early years crabbing trips and enjoyed them, you have that option again!  A good friend of mine, Chad Hemelright is now running the same type of trips.  The crab pots are already in the water with bait in them.  You get to go out on a real crab boat, pull the pots like a crabber, and bring the freshest crabs home for dinner.  Chad will do the dirty work(pulling & re-baiting the pots) if you want him to, or you can do it.  Kids love these trips!  Come to think of it, I can't ever remember a crabbing trip that I ran with kids where I ever had to pull or re-bait more than one pot.  Once the first crab pot came over the side and was rebaited, the kids couldn't wait to pull and rebait the next one.  Chad's boat is docked in Kitty Hawk, which is a short drive for those of you staying on the northern beaches.  Chad can be reached at (252) 475-0090 or (252) 261-2551.
