Ocracoke Flounder :) AKA a 8lb 13oz big ol’ Corncrake Doormat!
Y'all.....seeing this monster laying on the sand that night in Ocracoke was just wild! We were in shock when we first walked up but without hesitation, I gigged him QUICK!

Stripers AKA Rockfish :) Blackened & Fried!
Y'all....I LOVE Rockfish. Seriously, it's one of my favorite fish in the world to eat! It's so juicy and has the perfect amount of flaky yet meaty texture making it super versatile for cooking!

Buy a Boat, Drink a Beer, Get Along
They say, “The two happiest days in a boat owner's life: the day you buy the boat, and the day you sell the boat.” :) But, I can tell ya that if I ever sell this boat it’ll be because I’m buying another. I get it though, boats are a never ending project. I challenged myself last year without hesitation to buy a boat, [...]
