2012 New Year Fun Fishing Trip!

As we say goodbye to 2011 and usher in 2012, Our good fishing buddy, Raymond chartered a trip with Tuna Duck Charters captained by Dan Rooks in Hatteras, North Carolina.
What a blast we had! Nope, no tunas this time but D R U M S! Big Red Drums! All of them were way over the limits and we had to release every single one of them. Biggest one broke the 50lb scale we had on board and the average were 30lbs - 40lbs.
We were jigging for them in 60ft water and it was non stop action as soon as we hit the spot!
Later in the afternoon we tried heading to deeper waters to try for the yellowfin and blackfin tunas but unfortunately the tunas were out celebrating New Years Day and were no where in sight.
Thank you Captain Dan and Mike from Tuna Duck Charters, we'll see you guys when the blue fins season starts!
Enjoy the photos and Happy New Year Everyone!!!
