Beach fishing report..Oct 1976..sorry for the lateness

1976, A day that will live in infamy!

Younger by a few years...around 36..years ago :lol: Jim(Crashpup) and I drove all night from PA. No sleep..went right to "The Point" in Buxton, NC.

We saw a bunch of birds going off about 2 miles off shore. The entire chaos of busting fish and birds was coming straight towards us. We had bottom rigs with mullet sitting in sand spikes. Not my kind of action fishing, just sitting and waiting but.....sure does work when nothing else is happening. Plus major socializing in lots of ways.. :o :lol:
As the cauldron of chaos got close..all rods went down at once. Pandemonium! We had guys with 3 rods out grabbing them all. I had only one rod...then :P . Got the fish in then threw out my hopkins...bam..another. Sadly, these were the killing days. Behind us is our friends (Charley from Guatemala this year) father's 1960 Rover.
