Waiting for action


I was driving by the Waterway Inn on Route 24 this evening and saw this fishing boat ready for action sitting out in the Intracoastal Waterway.

I am glad we live where there are still fishing boats.

Fishing boats equal fresh fish and great local shrimp.

I am not sure I could back to eating seafood from a grocery store.

It is just not the same as going down to Clyde Phillip's and picking one off the ice and waiting for it to be professionally cleaned.

I think the only way you get fresher fish is to catch them yourself which we do sometimes.

I will admit that this year my flounder has all come from Clyde Phillips and some of the other local markets. I have struck out on flounder so far.

I have a new Carteret County Blog which has replaced this one for 2008.
