End of Feb Update

I am down with the back and damn good friends sending pictures of some really nice trout. True punishment.
Capt Gary Dubiel had a miserable day yesterday with his boat but ended up locating some nice trout late. He tag and release several with one measuring 27”. I can only guess how much he should have weighed!
JB had a limit catch of trout with one hitting citation weight of 5.24#. Others were all above 2.75#.
Sure hope fisheries doesn’t make any bad decisions in their current meeting. From all I am seeing, we should have a strong spring and on!
Rock are continuing to hang back some from move inland. I have had some good reports of 8# and up fish being landed in New Bern area.
If you would like to get out and target these fish, call me to get booked and hooked.
Our Catching Coastal River Striped Bass Seminar for this weekend has sold out. We have had a great response on tickets and wish we had more seating. If you care to see if there are any no shows that you may sit in for, come Sunday am with $30 and check in, we will do what we can to get all in without making it uncomfortable to anyone. Gary and I are looking forward to an informative fun day with you.

Pre Cold Report on the Neuse

Just a quick update to let all the na- sayers know there are some nice fish mixed in with small ones. Don’t be fooled. You have to be patient but results are worth it. This one just missed citation – 4.94 lb.

JB had some nice fish and also on open split ring that he claims was his citation! Maybe my next time.

I took my Henry’s sales staff yesterday with Craigs’ son Tyler; soon to be a sailor on a Navy Submarine. Fished 3 creeks and there was fish in all. Had to move around and pin down due to wind but ended up tagging about 8 fish and landing 2 nice ones. Hats off to young man Tyler for his best ever catch and his entering into the Navy to support our country. He will do well due to his great listening/learning skills; his dad and Pyke, Oh Well!!!

Bottom line, there is plenty of action out there now for trout tugs. Colder weather should gang up and stage rock for upward spawn move too. Call me to get booked for a fun trip.

Also – only 6 tickets left for rock seminar 26 Feb. Call quick to get a seat.

Super Bowl Update

As I set in the house awaiting event and watching the rain, it is time for an update.
I connected in on the meeting in Raleigh this week and listened to both sides on HB353 Bill now. There were more solid points presented by recreational concerns than commercial. The comment that bill would detour individuals to go to a restaurant and get these fishes is mute. I don’t know of many that even serve these regularly. Flounder is the #1 fish ordered. Anyway, the Appropriations Committee said that the next meeting would provide some recommendations on the issue.
Trout and rock are still around for catching if you have patience and are mobile. I had a trip Saturday that start slow, very subtle bites causing me to move to another creek in search of a tug on the line for my clients. Finally found a pod of small fish with a legal slot (16 1/2) mixed in. Picture shows what can be caught from small to upper. Both of these fish were tagged thanks to my clients’ desire along with several others. We probably had 20+ fish total. It is fun fishing and a great future for spring. I caught trout on my new Rapala Xrap subwalk. First time I used it and it is productive bait. I have a wall lined with them too if you want any.
It’s time to start your planning for spring and summer charters. We should have a great spring with trout and hopefully drum as well as rock as the move back down after spawn. And Old Drum season should be as fundamental as last year. I already getting bookings these so get on board.
From the shop, I am an authorized repair center for Water Snake trolling motors and will have one on my Key West soon. They are just as reliable as others at a lesser price. Warranty is the same as well. I can help you with other accessories too; Minn Kota, Power Pole, Stick It Poles, Bobs Machine Shop Jack Plates and so on. Installs too. I stocked up my DOA and Rapala inventory to cover all local needs as well as TFP Gary Loomis 7’ rods in medium and medium light. Daiwa has come out with a new AIRD spinning real that I will be carrying as Excelors stock drops.
I have applied for my Federal Firearms License with hopes of helping with your gun purchases too. Should be a couple of weeks from now.
Now back to the Super Bowl. I don’t have a favorite in this event but sure hate Patriots. GO GIANTS!

Feb 1 Summer Report

Still chasing rock and tagging trout. Out Monday afternoon with my buddy JB. He took me on a CHARTER. We didnt leave until 2pm and had a slow start; but by 5pm we had caught about 20 fish tagging most. They were mostly in 12-14 inch range with 4 between 17 3/4 and 21 inches. Going up river for Rock Friday in hopes of finding some for my clients Saturday. Wind shift will hopefully push some water back in.
