Bobby Courtney brought his buddy Matt Pennington to Oriental for some Pamlico drumming and we worked hard with the corks for some really excellent bites. Bobby has fished the Roanoke, Georgetown, and now the Pamlico with me and we both fish the Striped Bass Challenge in the winter. Great guys and good big fish. Bobby and Matt chose to drive dup Sunday morning and fish Sunday afternoon and again Monday morning. Great way to get more fishing in on a tight schedule. Just keeps getting better!
