Spring has Sprung - Neuse is Alive

Beautiful conditions other than COLD – 38 degree late April!!!!
Out with John Comey and his CRAZY buds after top water rock. First stop was lifeless – no bait or takers. Quick to next stop and found a pocket of far rock, missing several blow ups and landing several as well with one nice 19-20 cooler fish on Rapala Skitter Walk – Storm Chug Bug did its trick too. They shut off quick so move to #3 – wind got uo and no takers. Change stately and into a near creek and found some trout and a rock. Chris had one nice trout on Rapala Twitchin Rap and also a small rock. I don’t want to leave out Stuart; he somehow didn’t get into the pictures but damn I could have done a video on him. He could be a comedian as a second job. Great fun am trip with some fun young men.


I have had constant reports of nice catches of trout and drum of late, thanks to water pushing in and warmer water. It’s only going to get better.  Hottest bait has been again the DOA shrimp and CALS. The Deadly Combo has really been doing the job. Tommy and Tyler were out Sunday showing this off. And Lauren Dean got her first trout!! Way to go.


My son in law Michael had an exception day just scouting around – ran up on a scholl of yearling drum in the shallows!!!!! Had 1 29 inch on top water and then found the flounder and slots later on DOA CAL shad tail in the Figi Chicken color.


And to top it off, Stuart Creighton of Raleigh showed off how the new DOA Airhead works on bass – yes freshwater.


My shop is in full swing helping with Power Pole, Trolling motor and tackle needs – Minnows in the tank.
Charters have been steady with openings for your adventure. Looking like another Good Year – Lets Go!

Warmer Weather Warms my Waters measn Fish

Rock have started their run up the Neuse River towards spawning grounds in Goldboro. With warmer water you can find some top water action early in am on stumpy shoreline throwing Rapala Skitter Walks and Storm Chug Bugs. After this adventure set up working deep ledges working soft plastics such as DOA and especially the new Airhead bait. It can be a sensitive bite so light tackle and braid are essential. These fish will be spawned out soon and heading back down river to produce a hungry sexed out bite on top water and jigging. The legal season ends 30 April but action will continue for the catch and release fun.

Trout action is setting up on fire with a large mixed size class. There has been reports of 6" - 26" fish caught all over the Neuse River creeks. Again, most of what I have been catching on is soft plastics (DOA) and now rigging on VMC Wide Gap Heavy dutty 3/0 weighted hooks. These have a hook up rate far better than I have ever seen.  The Airhead is producing well too worked in a slowwww.. twitch bait style along the bottom. Kip and Elaine also found some trout and pups on this trip w/me. As water aproaches 60+ degree pont we will see even better action as these fish warm too.

Puppy drum action has been increasing well of late. This is good to see in our area as a sign of a much better summer slot action.
Shop is open now with all your local needs - great weather this weekend - come see us.

Come get on board and enjoy this great action. Book a trip today.

3 Species Day

Did a split trip today with one of my regular clients hitting rock on top water and jigging ledges in the am and targeting trout and drum in pm.
I had Kip Anderson on the am trip up river on the Neuse at first light (cold too). We did find a fair top water bite for about an hour with Kip landing a 22”er on a Storm Chug Bug. Then we went up river more and dodged the wing landing another nice 20” fat rock on a DOA Jerk Shad.


After Lunch and a nap we were back at it for other species with Kip and his wife Elaine.  We found trout in several stops ranging for 8 up to about 20 inches fishing DOA CAL Jerk Shad on VMC Wide Gap weighted hooks and Elaine’s favorite – DOA 3” shrimp she has name Quennie. Kip also caught a pup making it a 3 species day for him.


I have openings this month for 16,17,18,19,22,23,24, and 29. I am also booking cobia and Big Drum trips for the July – Sept time frame. LETS GO!
