Nice fish. I couldn't get out the inlet I had 7 men aboard. To many bodies to cross the sandbar in the event of an emergency. Plus it was the beginnings of a bachelor party
Got ya. I do not belong to either.

Hope everyone stays safe over the next couple of days, I visit Ocean Isle beach every year for the last couple of years, so far I do not think that they received any damage there, but further north it seems to be a different story. and where I use to live and work in Pennsylvania, they are expecting severe flooding again with a possible mix of snow and rain.

Sandy is getting ready to give obx a good douche. Already taking water from ocean side and high tide is 2 hours away yet. Then the wind is gonna switch and all that water has no where to go. Looking at possibly the same or worse flooding as Irene. This ain't pretty. Gonna go for a ride here in a bit , I'll try and get some pics
