2017 Warm Water
« Reply #120 on: August 06, 2017, 19:18:46 PM »
Recluse, ha!

I'll float if not much paddling is in order. Shoulder surgery years ago has my right shoulder fucked good when paddling. I really miss the kayaking.

I was on a nice roll with smallies. Then went back to checking out some blue lines.

At Carolina Beach right now. Anybody that may be close by, come see me.

That's better than anything I've caught from that river this year.  Caught one 8 inch smallie yesterday and a sight of a naked man swimming in the river.  Things you see on the Roanoke.....

Yep. Enjoy the parents while you have them. I lost mine far too young.
As for floating, I have a two man hard bottom raft that can accept a motor. I don't have a motor though. It would probably do well up there. I am not much of a floater either (ask Al.) It's about to get a shit ton of rain over the next week.

The Uwharrie is not well suited for floating large boats I've gone down it in a 14' Jon twice, but we carried many cobble-rockgarden shoals.  The best way to tackle the U is to simply paddle or wade upstream/yak or canoe in tow, and fish a couple miles upstream, and drop back down.

The U will be running 2x-3x what this gage is running depending on which section one floats
