Running and gunning with A67s, 4K open array, and Steiners at the ready, if one insists on jigging, but you're right Pete, that's not the way to go down there. Thumb up your arse? don't do that, wanna go jigging for cod?you can bet your fanny if the fishing were the best in 10 years I'd have my NC license and living on my boat in Oregon Inlet........unfortuneately I'm sitting here in St. Leonard with my thumb in my A$$.......no doubt guys are catching fish but like Phil and Brian said.....LTJ'ing is a tough tough gig down there.
I bet they are outside the line,i also bet the trawlers are out there enjoying the bounty while the coastguard is busy makeing sure they aren't disturbed by the rec'sblue lou...I finished up my open array install just 2day...don't fish the ocean w/out it I say. I got wind of a bite ABOVE the entrance of the bay I mite just investigate here soon. I would bet the bulk of the fish down VA/NC way r outside 3, probably by a good bit based on the SST.
Oh I doubt that very seriously....not to many "conservationists" out there...in that area anyway..I'm sure ole Rick (Capt. Kill) let her swim off too right? :wink44:
