Mid March Report

It has been a great week on the water. Started out with me and my soon to be son in law fishing a short late afternoon. We probably caught 30 trout with most under 14” tagging a bunch. Loads of fun on light tackle and caught on Yo-Zuri 3D Minnow (old style) and DOA.
Thursday was out with the Fisherman’s Post gang Max and Josh. What an afternoon. Several fish 18-21 inches, a lot of photos and plenty of bs for an article to come next issue. Josh was slow out of the gate but finally stuck a nice fish. Max want to through a mirrolure so I set him up with my custom 17 and bang - bang – 2 nice fish in a row. It was a fun afternoon on the water with perfect condition and a lot of nice fish. I hope Max can put together a GOOD article!
Saturday morning was out with Gary and Judy Butts. Garys mother want Judy to learn to fish and catch them. Well, it worked. When I kept her focused she caught fish!!! And she also caught the biggest at 21”. Can’t count how many short fish we caught but her and Gary did a good job sticking them once they got adjusted to twitching the baits. Great clients and made momma proud. I even shared one of my newest drink recipes to them and response was that they are hooked! Hope I didn’t corrupt them.U
I had a nice trout weighed in this week by Ted Gustafson. His catch weighed in at 6.03 lb. Great catch for the current stock conditions. I have had several attempts of weigh in that fell short of 5# by a minimal amount. This is a great sign of things to come.
Water temp is in mid 60s pushing 70 at times and areas. These fish will soon be head into the river. It won’t mean you can’t catch any in the creeks but major population will enter river areas.
As the rock return down river after spawn, we should have some really good top water action in and around New Bern. I have had a few reports of some action already.
Met with ATF Agent and in the wait mode for final approval to buy and sell guns. New adventure that I hope I care share discount with my customers as I do on boat and tackle stuff.
Call if interested in booking a spring rock/trout or cobia trip, summer slot drum/mixed bag trip, Old drum trip or just for a great scenic ride.
