I was wondering if there is a local fisherman chat room, Little river, Ocean isle etc. ?
I never seem to run into other fisherman at my marina at Harbour gate. I see a couple of shrimpers. But not many guys doing recreational fishing. Just wondering if there is a site that locals talk about the local waters? Jetty Jay

Thanks, I was hoping to chat with locals here that fish the waters off SC/NC border. I noticed that alot of the boats out around where I fish seem tight lipped. I was trolling by a boat tuesday in the jungle and I hooked up and fought the fish slung him in and radioed them to see if they were getting anything and they ignored my calls. Oh well go figure. I caught five or six fish within eyeshot of them and couldnt raise them on the radio. But when I asked for a radiocheck the coast guard answered me. Its a big ocean and plenty of fish to go around.

Probably didn't hail them on a channel they were monitoring.

Your right, this is probably the best place to chat with guys from this area. I dont get to mingle much with local fisherman. I monitor my radio when Im fishing but it seems a little "clique ish". I have my honey holes where I do well. But sometimes it would be nice to chat with the other boats. Maybe its my Yankee accent LOL. But I married a country girl and lived here ten years now.

That might be it, I tried a bunch of channels but maybe I didnt find the one they were on. JJ

06-29-2007, 10:10 PM

You'll find some on NCWaterman.com and FryingPan Tower.com You will find the majority of rec fisherman in NC are more than willing to help and talk to you.

I misread the post title and had SC on the brain, Greg nailed it. There is also NCAngler.com but the folks here in the Carolinas Forum on THT are more than happy to help you out, I know they sure have helped me!

Thanks, I will try to touch base when I'm out there. Sometimes I am out and the only boats I see are way off in the distance. If I do happen to touch base with other boats , I feel more relaxed. My cell is out of range most of the time I am trolling .I generally stay within 30 miles. On occasion I have ran to the stream, but not recently. Most of my time is spent around the Jungle or the finger, Or I run to the ledge. I haven't fished 90/90 this year yet, even though its closer. I might give it a shot this week. JJ

Thanks Mark I look forward to catching you on the water. JJ

I go to the fryingpan tower site all the time as well as OIF site of Capt Brandts. Which I read daily for the reports. I learned alot from the OIF site, and the links. JJ
THT needs a real-time IRC style chat...not much chance of that now though...

Yes thats what I was hoping for a real time chat area but its still a great site. ~JJ~

Thanks I will, I almost bought a house on Ocean isle a few years back. I live out in the country outside of Loris, But I have two oceanfront condos in cherry grove. That I use when they are not rented. Mostly after season in the fall when the kings are big. Hope to see you on the water.~JJ~

There are tons of free chat rooms out there that can be used. All you need is a date, time and topic.
07-10-2007, 09:48 AM

Check channel 6 and also 71. A lot of guys run on these two. Reel Ride and I am normally out of Southport. If you have trouble finding fishing spots, give me a call. Out usually every couple of weekends. Sounds stupid, but, just call out into the mic are there any tht guys out there. You will get hit back. Craig
