    Sat afternoon ,me ,Aaron ,an his wife Sara,went fishing on the Cape Fear in downtown Wilm .Sara loves to gamble an we did a pool for the trip 1st fish ,most fish ,an largest fish .it cost me 3 dollars to her before the night was over ,as she won all 3 .
    Sara got a sheephead to start with ,an then some croakers ,ells ,a guestamated 18 -20 lb stingray ,also she an Aaron got the one an only cat fish for the trip 14lb.6oz.
    We got on river sat afternoon just as a ship was leaving for the ocean ,Sara had never seen the Cape Fear memorial bridge open before ,at least from the water view ,she liked that view .
    It seemed as last nite was my night to catch a few eels an wood logs,limbs an even boards ,but it was a very enjoyable night on the river either way . Aaron finally got Sara talked into coming in about 3:30 sunday morning

    Decent night Dickie for the way the fish were biting. I only got two and that was in the first 2hrs I was there. Only one lost fish and a couple bites after that....and one MONSTER eel:crazy:
