Merry Christmas

Santa is getting prepped to fly and this report brings to you my best of Merry Christmas wishes.

Fishing has been really good - loads of small trout to tug on rod with some really nice fish mixed in. Have to move

in search of the larger ones but can be well worth your time.

Rock are still on fire in Neuse and Trent waters. Topwater and jigging producing well. I prefer to use Rapala hard

plastics and DOA jigs. I am carrying the XRap Sub Surface that is extremely productive and can be used in structure

controlling your depth.

MY man Michael went out the other day and wore the trout out and mixing in some nice rock action along with a bream

on a 3D.

Me and JB did a short morning with low water and strong SW wind ending up tagging 5 fish, one at 17 1/2 inch and

releasing several under 12. Fish were in skinny water instead of deep surprisingly maybe due to water temps at 60.

If I can help with any of your fishing, boating or charter desires - call me on cell 252 670-2841 during winter

season. I will be updating fishing trip reports through the winter as well.

First weekend in January finds me at NC Fairgrounds Raleigh Fishing Expo. My booth will be in saltwater building

and am offering some good discounts on gear and charters. Come see me.

The following weekend is the Big Rock (Henrys) Dealer Tackle Show. This is my annual restock and find special

deals. If there is anything your need or want; t motors, Talons, rod/reels, ect; I share any show savings.

Again want to wish you a safe and Merry Christmas.

Pre Christmas Report

Well, my slow shop time is here - “Hibernation”. Thursday will be my last full shop hour day until March. Come get your Christmas Gift Certificates or products. This don’t mean I will not help those who need something; just call ahead. I will be fishing allot and doing my January shows. Keep this in mind for any of your large purchase needs IE trolling motors / power poles / Talons. I share show saving on orders. I will also be at Raleigh Fishing Expo with a booth showing off my charters service and selling some of my favorite goods. Come out and see what I have and the show discounts available. I will be posting my regular reports for the rock and trout through this time too, so call if interested in a trip to chase these guys. Cold weather angling but good fishing.

I hit a couple of areas I haven’t fished for a while to help Tim Ellis get a broader range for his tagging study. Saturday found a load of SMALL trout with non over 14”. Tagged 8 in Bay River creeks. Tuesday took me to a Neuse River creek that was also loaded with SMALL trout but did major 1 at 17 1/2 inch and tagged 10.

Have had lots of reports around the county from boat and shore of decent slot catches and loads of fun on small fish. Dale Hayes had this nice trout fishing with his buddy Nick. They have become avid trout guys. Rock continues to be the star with good action in and around New Bern. Should only continue to get better.

I have been getting a few calls on mud minnows. I will fill my tank again in preparation of your call. Great winter trout bait. Call to arrange purchase, regulars know the deal!

I will be booking charters through the winter targeting Rock and trout. Great fishing through the cold! Call to book your journey into some awesome fishing.

Be safe on the water and tight lines.

Early Decenber Report

Sunday brought another ALMOST citation to my shop. Had one angler come in with what he was raving as a citation fish but missing.  it by a mear .4 lb

Monday afternoon was a short late trip to tag a few local trout with some good success. Tagged about 10 in 2 hours before dark set in. Back out Tuesday AM with my buddy Bill chasing topwater rock. He said it had been years and owe was he enjoying the early bite. Several blow ups before he got it down but several fish later bite slowed down. Managed about 6-8 topwater fish with largest going about 24” Great action on M/L gear.

Call me to book an exciting trip for these guys. Will offer a 10% discount to anyone responding to this report and booking to fish before December 21.
