  Been trying fishing
to hard.  Our friends at NCDMF are doing all they can to keep us from doing that.  But, I will go down swinging.  FYI:  You can now also follow what we have been catching on Instagram at beachbumfishingobx.  I have been a little better at quickly updating that versus this site.  Plenty of endangered species(Rockfish(Striped Bass)) with stripes on the side in the sound waters.  Andrew(PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) from Maryland landed some studs today.  We should continue to catch plenty of these elusive fish through the end of the month and into December.  The bite with birds on them should start any minute now.  When it starts, it is great light tackle action.  Catch-And-Release this year.  Redfish/Red Drum/Puppy Drum are still around the inlet.  On the days when the water gets into the 60's are when we get them.  There were still some Gray Trout(Weakfish) and Bluefish around the inlet as of last week.  Sea Bass are on the Inlet bridge pilings and on the wrecks. Still some False Albacore, outside the Inlet as of yesterday.  Photos from earlier this summer:  The Grand Salami(PHOTO1) (PHOTO2) (PHOTO3) (PHOTO4) (PHOTO5) (PHOTO6)(PHOTO) Smile Henry(PHOTO).  Whopper Spek(PHOTO) (PHOTO). (PHOTO) (PHOTO)(PHOTO) (PHOTO).  This guy goes by "The RodFather(PHOTO)," seriously, it is on his license plate. (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO) (PHOTO).  Don't mess with these ladies(PHOTO1) (PHOTO2) (PHOTO3) (PHOTO4)(PHOTO1) (PHOTO2) (PHOTO3) (PHOTO4) (PHOTO5)(PHOTO2)(PHOTO1) (PHOTO2)(PHOTO1) (PHOTO2) (PHOTO3). The Black Boat(PHOTO) is still in the water at The Oregon Inlet Fishing Center and ready to go for Red DrumThe Yellow boat-YELLER FELLER(PHOTO) is on the trailer for chasing The Rockfish(Striped Bass) out of Manns Harbor until they move on.  If we are lucky, they will be here until the end off the December.  THANK YOU to the peoples for coming out fishing and putting up with me!  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 with.  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.
