Still not much happening...

...just finished looking at a few message boards and the fish just are not around. looks like we missed the big run by about two weeks, give or take. all those being taken now seem to be strays, with the exception being the south point of ocracoke. apparantly those sharks we caught are refered to locally as "dog sharks". we sure killed them saturday, though...40 plus! too bad they don't have a citation for those damn things. all in all, a great trip, i thought. the house worked out great though we maybe should have fished the old jetty for specks, but the water temps all seemed so cold north of the point. i say let's consider this again next year. perhaps our luck will change. if nothing else, we will gain more experience.

I'm with the Dawg on this one. All in all a good trip although rather cold at times. I think we might try and move it up a few weeks earlier depending on weather patterns & history. House was perfect. One thing I will not do again. Drive down night before was too extreme for me. I think leaving Greenville and getting to OBX around sunrise or early morning on day of check in will work better. I think I am still trying to catch up on the sleep. All in all a good time, thanks to all those that went. Hopefully, I'll make it down to Ocracoke in October for FDS 2004. Job or new baby will have an impact on that decision.
