Today I ventured down to the Crystal Coast to enjoy some of the fall false albacore action with my friends Nathan and Daniel. As we made our way out of Beaufort Inlet this morning, there were albacores busting behind the breakers all the way from Beaufort to Barden Inlet……..a mighty impressive sight to say the least. The fish were very plentiful and willing to take our flies. Fun stuff!
Gear List: Redington Predator 9′ 9# (a great rod for its price point, will be getting a Sage X or Salt HD for next season but still intend on keeping and using it), Sage Spectrum Max 9/10 Reel (an awesome reel with extreme drag smoothness and very lightweight), Rio Tropical Outbound Short WF9F/Intermediate. Even though it’s a “warmwater line”, it performs well in cooler conditions and shoots very well in the windy conditions we encountered today.
