CMP - 11/8/2006 4:50 PM

Really, so when jockey boy or whatever his naem is slams the guy who started this post it's ok, but when I hit him as a no-nothing "I caught one 79" fish", I'm the problem? LOL! Too funny. Then again, I guess it's a perspective thing. 79" is a big bluefin for you boys. Up here, it's a rat. ...

CMP
Don't get pissed off because your BFT fishing sucked up there this year and now the fish are in our back yard.

Like I said, get a clue.

I did not slam the guy that started this post.

I corrected the second guy to post. He said fairly small 80 lbs fish.

Well he was from SC so he had no idea about the fish because he heard it through hearsay.

So, it was a 79" fish, and that might be a rat to you....but its big enough to legally sell. Its not a small fish nor is it 80 lbs. Either way its a 300 lb fish just like I said it was.

So, as I said before. Let me know when your head is out of your ass.

Dont worry about CMP...all he does is come on sites like this and try and piss people off. He doesnt know a fraction of what he says he knows.

I do hope the Navy isn't sonaring the Sh&t out of the offshore waters again. Last time that happened, massive amounts of pilot whales ended up washed up on the beach up here. It just scares the hell out of the fishes. Kinda a makes me want to turn off the fishfinder when I get in a school.

we always turn off the fishfinder when we are near fish, they can definitlty sense it if its a hi power one (we have to get real close harpooning, i dont know if it matters too much when you are hooking)

Interesting that several different people mention sonar (& Navy testing):

Do you think that the excess Navy warships in the area had anything to do with it? I saw at least 3 different ones and a friend near the inlet saw 3 all at roughly the same time. That is at least 6 ships in the area. Rumor has it that they were testing a torpedo interceptor. I hope they don't bring the sonar testing range here as proposed.

I am concerned with the sonar crap, too. It's not going to be a good thing for those of us fishing the Onslow Bay!!! The last time they tested this Summer.....the bait and the fish were nowhere to be found for 2 weeks...coincidence??? I doubt it. At least it doesn't seem to hurt my Grouper fishing!

..but when the topic came up nearly a year ago, there didn't seem to be much interest.

Drifter,

To be honest, as another Carolinian and fisherman, it does bother me, the use of the really high end sonar along the coasts for testing purposes. It wrecks the fishing when it is performed.

Is it needed by the Navy, yes. I'd rather have bad fishing than a bunch of German subs off the coast sinking trawlers and cargo ships and 23 foot CC recreational fisherman.

Just seems to be a nescessary evil in today's world.

Not starting a fight, just relaying my intentions after the quote above. I'd rather have lost fishing time than somebody's U-Boat off the coast.

Thanks to all Vet's this weekend, Including ME! I think the weather Gods will allow me to go fishing with my Family this Wknd.

I'm not sure I know what CMP is talking about, up here it's either a rat or a keeper and 73" is a keeper according to NMFS so we will keep all 73" and bigger fish. Hey CMP if you want to throw any of those 79" rats over, throw them over on our deck! We'll let you know how much $$ we got!

First off I would say that the 300lb+ round weight would be accurate for the fish... but seriously who really cares about specifics like that. More importantly why the hell would a fish do that... I don't know if I would have hacked that fish up to eat it... it may have been sick. I would think that if the sonar was the issue there would have been more fish doing the same thing. However I think that the sonar could have easilly had an effect on the fish.
CMP I dont know what you are talkin about now... up in MA a rat is about a 30lber... which they never see down there I don't think. I have fished both down there and up here for the past two years and on average I would have to say there fish are actually bigger. They don't have the SBFT fishery that is up here... Also I know that those are apples and orranges and its a completely different fishery, but if you fished off Chatham this year there were quite a few of the rats in the mix more like 99% rats 1% giants. Anyone fishing up here in the NE this year would have LOVED any 80 inch fish any day even you CMP. I hope NC goes off for you guys this year however I really don't think its gonna happen. I think the trail of bait for the migrating fish has been so decimated by the Midwater Trawl boats in the gulf of maine that the fish no longer follow the trail of bait down to NC on their migration. The fish leave Canada and go god knows where. Anyone in NC with a stake in the fishery we would love to have you join in on the fight to get these boats the hell out of the Gulf of Maine. I would be willing to bet that the steady decline of the NC fishery along with the Gulf of Maine fishery along with the rise of the fishery in Canada (who does not let these boats in their waters) is related. You guys have taken care of your problem with the Mehnaden boats down there... But if you think that was bad you should see the midwater trawl fleet here in the North East. Listen to what twofinbluna says.... He is probably one of the most knowledgeable people on this board.... Just my two cents

A few fish hooked in Ocracoke this weekend. 1 87" fish caught in Ocaracoke this weekend. 1 pulled off here in MHC this weekend.

I laid my eyes on 1 Friday. He was cruising the surface. Pretty neat seeing that.

Better than last year at this time.

Johnboy, I saw you refueling Fri evening in Morehead. We fished everywhere on the east side and then went out to Big Rock. We saw a huge whale inshore of the Barge wreck. Sucker must have been 50' long. We caught a few at the rock but nothing worth getting excited about.

I gotcha Bill. How have you been doing? I have not talked to you in a while. Pretty work on your fish.

I did hear someone saying something about a whale in the middle of the shoals on Friday.

CMP is a VERY successful business owner and former tuna harpooner by profession. He was selling bluefins while most of us NC boys were still swimming around in our daddy's nut sacks. He is one of the top two or three most knowledgable people on this site with respect to the fish, the fishery and the political corruption that accompanies same.

Sheeesh all this banter over a (#) or a (')? Apparently the personality traits of being gracious is lost on some here. I'd rather somebody tell me I know alot about fishing instead of me telling somebody I know alot about fishing. Really I just hope the fish was ill and not affected by anything else. Be that disease, SONAR.

Tom,

Are you powder coating the truth. You obviously do not know CMP very well. Daddy has a succesful business.....He went out on a harpoon boat a couple of times.....You sure you don't mean swilling budwieser instead of selling bluefin.....He might be a leader on this newsgroup, but he is a follower on the water...

Ditto... I don't mind being corrected because I do make mistakes, but what is the need to be a jerk0ff about it? I guess it makes people feel good about themselves.
