OBX & The Joys of Fishing
Posted by: greg0276 on Sep-06-12 9:12 PM (EST)
Long time sea kayaker, long time fisherman, never put the two together until recently.
On a recent expedition out through Oregon inlet, up to Nags Head, I decided to pack a minimal set of gear and head out. About 3 miles off Whalebone/Nags Head in ~50ft I picked up a school of bait fish and started casting. Almost immediately something nailed the jig and after some time reeling in much to my surprise was an undersize but immensely colorful dolphin. I proceeded to land a decent few spanish mackerel and a 16" yellowtail before the midday heat and headed back.
It's hard to describe how thrilling the adventure, fully immersed in the sea, it was, but needless to say I'm hooked!
