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.
