*** FIREWORKS on BOGUE INLET PIER ...... SATURDAY, JULY 4th at 9:00 PM! ***
 

7-2-15 ...... THURSDAY ...... JULY 4th is JUST AHEAD! ......

Fishing has been, for lack of a better word, SEASONAL! .......... Gusty, southerly winds are making for absolutely beautiful BEACH WEATHER, while the ocean is churned up, producing an interesting catch of PUPPY DRUM, BIG BLUEFISH, BLACK DRUM, SEA MULLET, and SPOTS, but not in large numbers .......... Congratulations to LYNN RODMAN (Garner, NC)-- 9 lb. 11 oz. HATTERAS BLUE ............ PERRY JORDAN (Lincolnton, NC)-- 6 lb. 3 oz. PUPPY DRUM ......... MAX SEXTON (Sparta, NC)-- 3 lb. 6 oz. BLACK DRUM ............ NICHOLAS KLEM (Avoca, NY)-- SEA MULLET (totaling 3 lb.) ............. and LANDON LILES (Wilson, NC)-- FIRST FISH (SPOT & a BLUE)! ............ Daytime fishing is quiet but there are some bottom feeders in the surf especially if you take the time to throw a piece of cut bait or a bucktail ............ Evenings seem busier right now with people; SPOTS and CROAKERS with a few SEA MULLET are giving them a reason to stay a little longer! .......... The WATER TEMPERATURE is 82* and the neatest natural LAZY RIVER (between the sand bars--great shallow water for the kids) exists next to the pier at low tide on both sides!

JULY 4th SCHEDULE: We will have a FREE FISHING DAY on SATURDAY, JULY 4th starting at 12:00 MIDNIGHT and running until 12:00 NOON. All fishermen must leave the pier until after the FIREWORKS SHOW, which will start at 9:00 PM. We will re-open the pier to FREE FISHING around 10:30-11:00 PM (after clean up) and you can fish for FREE thru 6:00 AM SUNDAY MORNING! ............ We hope to see you here and the weather looks good with only a small chance of SHOWERS. 

SEE YOU THIS WEEKEND! ............. MIKE STANLEY
