Currituck/Albemarle Sound

Postby hh65cdr » Fri Sep 25, 2009 12:59 am

Had a great day on the Currituck/Albemarle Sounds border today. Padling out I had 6 bottlenose come up and play with me. Coolest thing I ever seen on the yak. It was like they wanted me to play with them. If I stopped to make pictures they would swim up in front of me and then turn around and come back almost to say come on lets go this way. So I paddled with them and they would come up along side my yak splashing me and showing off. My pictures dont do it justice but I was so wrapped up in the moment I dint think about pics. Later I did catch a bunch of baby specks but couldnt find mom and dad. Trying a new hole on up north the sound tommorrow.

Awesome. I really wish I knew a way to get down there for a weekend.

Tracy,
That is really neat. As we discussed, swimming with dolphins is not always a great idea because they have the tendancy to bump into swimmers particularly if they feel you are in trouble (I think they are trying to save you). I have had fellow divers get hurt, one with broken ribs. But they are intelligent and I am sure they were communicating with you.
I love the colors on that small trout.

I dont like those words. "Call it quits" I fish year round. Just kidding. Fishing gets slow around the 1st part of December. However I have learned about wintering drum down here so stripers and drum are possible through the winter. Along with flounder.
