Me and a couple of guys I know went out to Bogue Inlet on Sunday(09/17/06). We were throwing Berkley Gulp 3" white shrimp on swim jigs and finder rigs. We worked the grass flats on our way out to the inlet. The first place we stopped I caught a small sand perch, and on of my buddys caught about a foot long lizardfish. We drifted for a bit, the nosed up on a point adjacent to deeper water and I caught about an 11" gag grouper to everyones surprise! We then moved off into the inlet and noticed some action off a sandbar. After beaching the boat and doing some wading, we were soon hook up on a double of puppy drum(redfish,red drum). I was hung on one that was 36"-40" long, way above the slot limit and unfortunatley crossed lines with my buddies 25" fish that he landed and I got broke off. Two casts later and a couple minute and I landed a beautiful top end 27" (slot 17"-27"), that weighed in right at 8lbs! After that the fish moved out and so did we. We hooked up a with a few blues, then moved back into the grass beds. I caught a short flounder, hooked up shortly with a ladyfish, a speckled trout, then caught a tiny black grouper. One of the other guys I was fishing with caught the biggest inshore lizardfish I've ever seen, which must have been close to 18" long! All in all a pretty good day, and I'm looking forward to getting back out there and doing it again so that I've got more stories and tips to share with all of you guys. Also in my "tips" section, I hooked my biggest fish on a finder rig, but was finding quantity with the jig. Mostly I think the finder rig made the bigger fish feel more comfortable as the had the time to check the bait over and the currently could naturally move the bait around versus having to decide to snag the moving jig combination.
