Hook, Line and Sinker: Local Fishing Report for February 19th, 2014

February 17, 2014
I don’t mean to start out complaining, but Ole Man Winter has kicked my butt!   I am so ready to enjoy a few days of more gentle winds, more kind temperatures, and more glorious sunshine!  I’m not sayin’ that’s what we are going to get, but I am ready for it. (and I bet you are too!)
While conditions have kept me from fishing the past two or three weeks I’ve spent some time “dream-fishing” and doing some fish related research on the internet. Since Flounder are mostly absent this time of year and Trout are under government restriction, (you can’t keep any Specks until June!)  there’s not much other than Red Drum to amuse the hook, line & sinker crowd.
Here are a few current facts regarding Red Drum, aka Puppy Drum or Channel Bass:
North Carolina regulations say you can keep only One per person, and it must measure at least 18” and no more than 27”.   Since we anglers occasionally journey south in search of warmer weather and more fish, I thought I’d also look up the South Carolina laws.  The Palmetto state permits up to Three fish per person that must measure at least 15” and no more than 23”.
While perusing the internet for more interesting fishing information I picked up this obscure fact:  If you place an adult Blue Whale end to end on a basketball court, they’ll probably cancel the game!  Well, that’s what it said.
Wishing you the best,
