Fished Folly for a couple of hours on Sunday after the rainstorm, and caught three sea mullet and a sting ray. Two of the sea mullets were decent size. They were all caught on a bottom rig with shrimp. I posted a picture of the rainbow, while I was fishing!!
Yes, I am from North Carolina and my hometown is Elizabeth City(near the OBX). I am just used to calling them sea mullet and I think they have a million different names it seems like =) Thanks for the replys!!
When I was growing up on the piers and surf in NC the only people that I remember referring to them as whiting were folks from up north. We also call the red drum "drum" but most everything else seems to have the same name around here.
i had to get used to 1 of the fish down here myself. up north in lake erie we catch TONS of junk fish we refer to as sheephead (freshwater drum), but by no means are sc sheephead junk fish so i have quite a bit of fun telling people back home what im after sometimes and whats goin in the deep fryer or grill ;)
