Getting ready for the ‘work’ week. On board for one of the country’s oldest and largest Blue Marlin competitions, the Big Rock. One of the biggest charities in the area. Fingers crossed.

Fishy Friday: happy belated World (fight against) Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing Day!

Having fishy photos to share is a result of managing how many fish we catch. Thankful we are still catching them.

But other places in the world? Estimate is ONE fish in FIVE is illegally caught.

What can you do? Answer: ask your local seafood retailer to confirm that the fish it is selling you has been sustainably harvested. PLENTY of options!

Put pressure on the illegal operators by not buying their seafood!

This past weekend (June 5) marked the fourth observance of the International Day for the Fight Against Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated Fishing.

This day was declared by the United Nations to raise awareness about IUU fishing and its threat to the sustainability of the world’s ocean resources. NOAA’s Office of Law Enforcement plays a pivotal role in tackling IUU fishing every day: https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/feature-story/noaa-enforcement-continues-fight-against-illegal-unreported-and-unregulated-fishing

Sunday Special: Selectee Mahi!

As summer is now upon us, in this Sunday Special we are once again taking you offshore to catch some dolphin (also known as mahi mahi). During the high season from May to August, dolphin and other pelagic fish come through North Carolina's offshore waters while it is warm and we couldn’t be happier when they do!

Enjoy the video!

Sunday Special: happy (belated) World Endangered Species Day! 16,306 total, up almost 200 from last year.

Sunday Special: replay of our ‘Rock’ episode (aka Striped Bass) which opened this week (and only this week) for limited harvest. It’s a great example of fisheries management. People from all over come to catch these great fish, but it’s almost entirely catch and release. It’s a model that can be sustained for decades and it makes good money for so many people. Enjoy! A good friend caught a 10 pounder Friday!

Our first post! Still part of Sea NC but isolated to showcase our growing interest in trash collection and marine debris/plastic prevention.

So many great organizations doing this work on the Crystal Coast already. Big thanks! This is a small contribution but a different one.

Now that we have cleaned the bulk of the built-up trash along the maritime and in the lowland next to the train tracks, our mission is to maintain a largely trash-free look by conducting routine maintenance.

The idea is to show people what a highway/estuary system SHOULD look like.

The trash buildup is so extensive on our coast. Drivers must think that either public service isn’t doing its job (not the case) or that it’s hopeless (also not the case).

The Radio Island stretch of Highway 70 is a busy area. Only one way to get from Morehead City to Beaufort and vice-versa. People will see Radio ‘Free’ Island and wonder what happened, at minimum.

With more thought, drivers will think twice about throwing a cigarette butt out the window. They might think about the loose trash in the back of their trucks (in our opinion = the WORST culprit of trash proliferation, based on what we pick up). Residents are already active in pickup.

As we build momentum, we seek to promote Radio Island as the cleanest island in NC. This, we hope, will inspire other islands and coastal communities to make similar efforts.

Who knows, maybe the State or County could figure out a way to have a completion or certification whereby the winners/places could earn an acknowledgement?!?

Let’s go Radio ‘Free’ Island! Please FOLLOW / Like us!

This photo is from our first ‘maintenence’ haul - walked down the South side and up the North side in a couple hours. The rest of the photos coming...

Trashy Tuesday (part 2): Radio Free Island lives!
Several weeks of truckbed-lined trash bags are now in the books (or dumpsters really). 99% of the island’s thoroughfare is clean. One resident joined me for the final haul last night. Thanks to anyone else who helped out!

One thing we did NOT clean are cigarette butts. They aren’t plastic and as Mick Jagger used to sing, time waits for no one. We want to take some before/after pictures before we do a Round 2. It’s amazing how many are piled up.

We also did not clean the beach/bay area on south side or the boat ramp section on north side.

Now let’s keep Radio Island ‘Free’! Let’s keep it the cleanest island in North Carolina! We’ll do our part!
