Finally got back out on the water Thursday morning . First time in quite a while after all these operations. Didn't pull anything loose (I quess ), but it was sure good to get out of the house. Did get wet several times but I was surprised to not get into a real down-pour all day. Shad were all over the place, from the Buckhorne Damn all the way up The Haw and The Deep. Kept 6 eating sise channels but nothing worth bragging about caught. Some day will learn to post pictures of some really interesting places on The Upper Cape Fear.
