I just bought a Grady 192 a couple of months ago. I normally Fish around Little River. I want to do some bottom fishing around the tower, I would trailer the boat up to Southport and head out to the tower from there. My question is do I have enough boat to do this trip any thoughts would be appreciated thanks

Sorry for the late response but if you pick your days that is plenty of boat to make the tower. There are typically plenty of boats out there as well. Just make sure you have radios, PLB, and a tow service cause you never know.

I run a 225 tournament out of Southport - be more than happy to buddy boat anytime

Wondered how the fishing is out of southport area? Coming down from NJ for vacation in august and looking for property to maybe relocate
down the road. Taking tour of St James while we're down.
Thanks for any info ...

Thanks for offering the Buddy Boat, I would like to do the run, how much fuel do you burn from Southport to tower round trip?

Fishing is good around the tower if you care to venture offshore, there are some more nearshore hot spots, St James really nice community

Maybe 25 gallons? Honestly I don't really worry about that trip at all with a fill tank. I've run 60 miles out to the stream from southport trolled all day and back on half a tank.

I'll be down all next week and fishing some of those areas, feel free to PM me
