Dory Fishing

Several weeks ago I posted an entry here about dory fishing on Ocracoke's beach. This is a fascinating local commercial fishing technique. This month the Ocracoke Observer published an article by Jamie Tunnell that explores this topic in more depth. Jamie and Linda Rippe, owner of the Observer, were kind enough to allow me to republish the article on our web site, as our December Ocracoke Newsletter. Linda also sent me several photos that had not been published.

    Interesting article Philip. 25,00o pounds is a lot of mullet!! Given the economic struggles of the Ocraocke Watermen's Association, wouldn't it be a good idea for Ocracoke fishermen to do some serious dory fish in the fall and flood teh market up here with mullet and mullet roe? Assuming that the State Fishery regulations aren't real tight, it sounds like it may be a good way for them to make some money.
