Title: Re-introduction
Post by: Night_Hawk on November 08, 2017, 05:55 PM
I am reintroducing myself only because I have been (and am still) out of town since we move to Raleigh, NC in 2014.  But the Discussion board in NC sucks and I miss fishing the West Coast. 
Good fishing here in NC blue catfish in the big lakes, trout, flounder (small halibut like creatures that are harder to catch), Red Drum and BMF Sharks in the intercostal waterway, outside the outer banks has Cobia, Mackerel, and if I can get out further pelagics near the shelf... an now that I have pulled the trigger on a Hobie Island Adventure my ass will be venturing out that way soon.  Unfortunately my wife has that boat locked up (literally has lock on it) until I defend (December 18th), and then deposit my PhD thesis.  Did I mention going pack to school at the age of 39 sucks.
I am planning on coming back to visit friends In the coming year, and would love to make that happen in Sept. when the Slam Down is happening, if anyone can loan a brother a boat for a day that would be sweet.           
Like I mentioned I just bought a Hobie IA (2015) fully rigged and set up for fishing ... I also got the wife what I thought was a used Outback (2015), but still had the sales tags and instructions on/in it (brand new boat).  I wont piss you all off by telling you how much I paid for them, but i will say it would have been worth a plane ticket and car rental for someone from CA to fly out here, buy a used one, and drive it back. 
So i have now switched to the dark side,
I am a meat scientist by trade.  I used to run the Meat Processing Center at Cal Poly.
I recently accepted a position at NCSU as an extension meat processing professor.  So ask me anything about meat, poultry, and of course fish processing.

Welcome "back"! Sounds like things are going good for you out there. That catfish is huge! If you end up making it out here for the Slam Down, let me know I've got extra kayaks.
