Went down to Ft Fisher Military Recreation Area last Thursday. Setup camp and was joined by Eric from the FAAN who was also going to the Kayak M&G. We fished a little that evening from the fishing pier they have at FFAFR. Didn't catch much Eric did catch his firs Shark though. It was really windy that night . Blew away the dining fly Eric had put up. But only a sprinkling of rain so all was good.

say the same for the weather that day. We tried to go out of Massonboro Inlet , but that was not happening. The wave were probably around 3to 5 ft and the wind was really blowing . So w decided to try to fish inside . We tried the south Jetty, Snows cut and the Carolina Beach marina area. But the wind would not let up. Just not a good day to be on the water. I was starting to worry about Saturday being out in the kayaks. Friday evening Sharon came down after work. We headed down the beach Saturday morning with all three Kayaks on the roof of my Expedition. The cross over where the M&G would have lunch at , was about 6 miles down the beach. We got in the water about 0900 or so. Wind was still blowing but being low in the yaks and the marsh grass all round us gave us some protection.

To bad they have to be 15 inches.
