Hurricane Florence

Post Storm

We were fortunate here at Spec Fever and only had minor flooding. Many of our friends suffered storm damage and we want to send our thoughts and prayers to them and the many others in our community.

Our river is in pretty good shape and we had had some great trophy redfishing after the storm. There is also good number of specks in the river. We are running trips and catching fish. Oriental has open motel rooms and restaurants. Come see us!
