December 27 morning 1/2 day “Inlet Adventure” trip

 

Well……hope everyone had a great Christmas……a balmy 65 degrees on Hatteras Island,NC on Christmas day!!

Well the wind finally laid out enough that we could get out on a trip rather than having to cancel .

We dropped of the beach a ways and caught a ton of small Black Seabass on light spinning tackle……with only 4 keepers…..plenty of action …but it really sucks to have to throw that many back .

Also caught an Octopus while bottom fishing.

Put the trolling gear out and caught a nice King Mackerel and 3 false Albacores……All in all..a nice day on the Ocean.

I’m sure we caught 70 or 80 Seabass…only to be able to keep 4…what a crock
Here’s the Octopus we caught as well as a mighty Blowtoad!!
