  Been fishing
hard.  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.  The Redfish/Red Drum/Puppy Drum bite is in full swing.  The Speckled Trout are biting daily as well.  Bluefish up to 5 lbs. have been helping us with action too.  Sheepeshead and Black Drum at the bridges.  Amberjack still on the wrecks off the beach.  Triggerfish and Sea Bass on the wrecks too.  Spanish Mackerel, False Albacore, and Ribbonfish will be available in the nearshore ocean waters for another month or so.  Same deal with the Sharks.  Still some Cobia(PHOTO) around Oregon Inlet for the next month or so.  Photos from the past few months:  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). (PHOTO1) (PHOTO2)(PHOTO1) (PHOTO2)(PHOTO1) (PHOTO2) (PHOTO3). The Black Boat(PHOTO) is in the water at The Oregon Inlet Fishing Center and ready to go.  The Yellow boat-YELLER FELLER(PHOTO) is on the trailer ready and available for those of you staying in Duck & Corolla that do not want to make the drive to Oregon Inlet.  We can fish out of the Yellow boat out of the public boat ramps in Kitty Hawk Bay and in the Currituck Sound for Speckled Trout, Red Drum, and catch-and-release StripersTHANK 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.
