1-2-16 ...... SATURDAY ...... COOLER NEW YEAR'S Weather! ......

It has been quite a different winter season so far here at the beach; Dr. Bogus told me on New year's Eve that the WATER TEMPERATURE was 65*! ............ That is a far cry from last season; it was almost frigid! .......... He did mention that after you average the two seasons out, we are almost exactly where we should be! ............ Isn't MOTHER NATURE amazing?! .............. We are still seeing BLOWFISH, SEA MULLET, and BLUEFISH on the pier a couple of days into the New Year; we were riding the beach yesterday and I saw a small BLACK DRUM landed (and released!) ............. Dr. Bogus is an avid SPECKLED and GRAY TROUT fisherman, and he said it's been very slow on the TROUT front.   Maybe the water needs to get back down to a more average temperature for him to have fun!  .............. The 2016 BOGUE INLET PIER SEASON PASSES are available by mail! ................ BOTTOM PASSES are $250. and KING FISHING PASSES are $300.  ............... You can get yours (and a free GATE KEY) by sending a check to BOGUE INLET PIER, 403 Wild Cherry Lane, Emerald Isle, NC  28594.  ............ Please enclose your NAME, ADDRESS, TELEPHONE #, and AGE (reference only) and we will get it coming to you ASAP! ........... Don't forget that you can bring guests with you as long as you stay responsible! .............. We are working on the pier this month; it's a good time to get our scheduled maintenance complete before the new season is upon us (which seems like the blink of an eye!) ............. We are also planning our expansion and will begin construction when all of the stars align! .............. Good things come to those who wait! ................. We're excited to get the ball rolling! .......... Have a great WINTER, and we hope to see you on SATURDAY, March 12th, 2016 for our SEASON OPENING and the EMERALD ISLE ST. PATRICK'S DAY FESTIVAL! .............. MIKE & SHIRLEY STANLEY
