About the event
Old Drum Outing
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 16th or SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 23rd (alternate).
Captains are encouraged to not only enjoy the adventure with their fishing buddies, but to also extend an invitation for others to join the crew. Please indicate your boat's name and how many additional fishermen, besides yourself, that you will be able to accommodate. If you have a full boat, please advise so that I do not put you down as having openings.
The plan is to launch from the cedar island boat ramp at:
Meet at 5pm:
3619 Cedar Island Rd
115 Driftwood Dr
Cedar Island, NC 28520
This is not a requirement. You may launch from any Neuse River Tributary (Pamlico Sound) including the Pamlico River. Kayak fisherman are eligible, you must declare your launch location.
The outing is set for Saturday, September 16th, but you may choose to pre-fish the area on Friday, the 15th...if you feel lucky. That will be up to the captain and his crew to coordinate. Only fish caught on Saturday will count for our "friendly" competition, 27" and larger are eligible for the competition.
The traveling trophy will be awarded during an upcoming club meeting to the boat catching and releasing the most "old drum" during competition hours. We are on the honor system. A catch means you were able to grab the leader defined as the required "Owen Lupton" style circle hook rig. You do not have to physically place the fish in the boat to count as a successful release.
Note that the time frame for fishing has been opened up from 5:00AM to 12 Midnight on the 16th to allow for daytime poppin' cork fishing as well as traditional nighttime cut bait fishing. Official VHF Channel is 10. Cell phone service in the area is spotty.
Fishermen will be expected to help with fuel and bait costs. You will coordinate those purchases directly with your crew.
