We really like when we get reports back & pictures make it even nicer. Towards the end of June we had the pleasure of meeting a friendship duo Wayne & Jim. Wayne was kind enough to say these words~Good morning Sue, John & Holden,
We came to Surf City for a family reunion, but I also came with the intensions of catching some fish. That's why I call it 'catching' and not fishing. And all three of you are the reasons we enjoyed ourselves so much on the shores of Surf City catching our different fish after the sun AND moon cooled off in the ocean! The blues were fun to land and certainly quite different than landing them from a boat 25 miles off shore. Perhaps with a bit more practice, we could go for their striper cousins! Jim spent the last 20+ years in Alaska claiming he worked for a living, but we all know he spent years tossing his fishing line into the beautiful waterways of the state. My wife & I are from Pittsburgh, Pa, and we have been blessed to have put our fishing lines in waters(salt & fresh) all over the USA & Canada at different times. Thanks for your gift of enthusiasm & passion for the sport and for the use of your equipment and cleaning station on the morning after. We hope to see you next year about the same time when we stop in to see your smiles, check on what's running and pick up the necessities to go 'catching' once again. God bless. Wayne
If Wayne & Jim are reading this-please know the pleasure was all ours. We love what we do & we are who we are because of you & everyone else who steps through our doors. We are truly blessed. It was so much fun getting to know the two of you. Look forward to seeing you again. Until we meet again, keep smiling & enjoying life, after all each day is another day in paradise!

Monday July 6th- It's time for SHARK WEEK.
Looking for those Mega Sharks-anyone else think Dickie was nuts staying in a "cage" with a broken door that he had to hold shut? Paddling on the surface of a shark board (for better lack of words-lack of sleep is obvious), or going into the mating areas dressed to look like a seal? Fascinating how they obtain data. Ok so not fishing related, but still I was very happy to see the USA Girls Soccer Team take The World Cup. Disappointed that I didn't get to see the game since we were in the shop ( we are working on getting a tv in here). Fourth of July flew by, weather much better then predicted, but inlet was rough for boaters heading out yesterday. Boaters continue to increase their keepers. The kids charter going off The Hunter got some small blues in the inlet and further out got a lot of seabass, a huge amount of shorts, but did hook up with keepers as well, a ling, sea robin , but no fluke. Charter off of Laura Sportfishing hooked up with a nice amount of trigger fish. At Meyers Hole Dave S got himself a keeper fluke. Off the beach, dog fish are still what ends up on most lines. Did hear 2 reports, but not confirmed, of kingfish. North end off the surf getting fluke, still mostly shorts, but numbers for some are increasing, as well as getting some keepers. Brown sharks are being targeted & fun for those getting to bring one in. Some day time on lookers get nervous, a shark, is still a shark, IS A SHARK!
