Hi folks. Do any of you have experience with catching pickerel (redfin or chain) in in Beaufort and Hyde Co? I grew up in Ontario and miss catching Northern Pike and I'd like to catch one of these little water wolves if I could. (I actually did catch one in Hyde Co. one time and not since).
Are they fairly prevalent? Is there a type of water body I should be looking at? The current....

I don't know about anybody else, but the beginning of my turkey season was different like I have never seen it. April along the Roanoke River has never been as quiet, or as cold, as it was the first two weeks of the 2016 Turkey Season. I've heard people say there was no change in the way the turkeys acted, and then I've seen the older gentlemen scratch their heads at the lack of activity....
Just wondering if anyone has ever used the federal flitecontrol buckshot, and if so how did it preform? The land I have to hunt is a 15 year old pine/hardwood mix so it's pretty thick and I was thinking that buckshot would probably be my best bet.
Finally got a chance to get off the beach and chase the blue water Pelagics. As with everyone else it got rough for the ride home, but we had a fantastic day fishing. Ended up with 21 Mahi, 2 weehoo and a sailfish. Was so glad that my dad, who is 77 years young, was the one to catch the sail. It was his first as he never fights fish. We fished down around the 460's thanks to blue water....

Spring time is a time of high winds and frequent fronts. Typically harsh SE winds blow good water in certain estuaries bringing in plenty bait fish with predators fish like the speckled trout to be waiting eagerly to eat up getting nutrients for the their spawning season. If you are going to wait around this time of year for perfect calm and sunny....
I killed this bird on April 19th in. 11 inch beard. 1 1/4 Spurs. Weighing around 20lbs. After hearing 4 birds that morning, I started working 3 birds but all of them had hens and wouldn't come. I kept hearing this bird gobble his head off. I knew he was hot. So I got up and started after this bird. After a long walk to get to him, a few yelps and soft clucks on the slate he came right in.
Here is a pic of my daughter (Emma) with her 1st turkey that she shot in Gates County with a 1982 Winchester Greenwing Special 20 gauge that was mine first shotgun. He had a 10 1/4' beard with 1 1/4' Spurs.
On April 18 I was able to harvest a nice Tom with a 10 inch beard and a little over 1 inch spurs. I was familiar with this bird because my dad and I got in him Saturday morning. He was very vocal and gobbling like crazy at every crow that 'cawed' that morning. We snuck in the woods and began calling to him which got a gobble each time. Once he flew down he gobbled several more times and then....
