What an awesome weekend

This weekend was one to remember!

Saturday was Surf Day X and it was the best one yet with record attendance. We had a blast at the show meeting everyone. It’s great so see and talk to all of the people who make up the core surf fishing industry all under one roof. For those that attended and shopped at our booth thank you. We enjoyed being there and talking to everyone. From what we were told the seminars were awesome. Wish we could watch them, but there’s too much shopping mayhem at our tables to walk away. For those who have thought about going and didn’t… you missed out. Be sure to attend next year if for nothing else then the seminars. If you want to get peak inside surf day check out our Surf Day Live on our Facebook page.

Today (Sunday) was a treat! The beautiful weather had everyone thinking SPRING! I spent most of the day in the driveway unpacking from Surf Day. I could not have asked for a better day. The number of classic cars and motorcycles passing by was impressive!

On the fishing side of things… We had lots of customer in the shop and while most were gearing up in prep for spring there were a number who were going fishing. Why not take advantage of the awesome day? Most took clams to soak on the beach, but no reports came back. The only game in town is the early season hot spot which is technically off limits until March 1st. Kinda shocking that it’s only a few days away!

Fishermans Hq ambassador Jeff Warford headed down to the OBX Wednesday night to take advantage of a good weather window. He fished Friday, Saturday and Sunday out of Oregon Inlet. Over the three days the boat he fished on caught 5 bluefin and 7 yellowfin tuna. Friday morning we got two. All day Saturday was dead and made for a long slow day, but a bite late in the day made it worth it. Today (Sunday) they got two at dawn and then another on as the day went on.” Jeff said, The fish were spread out. There’s good numbers down there and when they settle in… it’s gonna tee off.” Be ready for March Madness!!!
