August 17 2008 Neuse River Fishing Report

image

Alot of shrimp being caught with cast net and resulting in some nice numbers and size of trout. Reports of numerous limits of nice fish.

Weighed in a real nice flounder - 5.32 pounds caught on river bank. Good to see some bigger flounder with the numbers of small ones still being caught.

Large Drum are running hard now. Fishing ledges and drops is the ticket with fresh or live bait on Capt Owen rigs to help preserve the resource. Have heard of catches from 1 - 20+ fish per trip.

Spanish also being caught in river. Pull 00 Clark Spoons on #1 or 2 planers or trolling weights. I use handlines with planers.

REMINDER - my Trout tournament starts mid Sept at $25 each. See link at bottom of home page for application and details. Fun cheap chance to fish this fall season and have a chance to win up to $900.
