Mid Dec Report

Damn the cold!!! Fished last week and had to break ice to tag about 12 fish in Bay River area. Water temp was 44 away from ice. Don’t think that hurt them too bad but did put them in a hard to find and catch mode. A friend had been on some nice fish to find them gone or not feeding. Then Sunday fell into a load of fish in one spot after fishing for 1 ½ hours without a tap. I was back out Friday still breaking ice and found some 12-14 inch fish to tag. They were in 8-10 foot of water and when I put them in live well they went belly up in 42 degree water. I had to tag and release as soon as caught to get them back into deeper water. We need to cross our fingers for no stunning from this weeks weather, a full week of it.

One of my customers, Fred, is a bank fisherman that does pretty good in the county. He came in with this 4.7 hoping for his first citation. It will come for him.

Rock report from New Bern was awesome this past week. This should stay the same through out the winter in Neuse and Trent. Remember your creel limits!!!

6 pounds is still leading my shop tournament which finishes up 13 Jan 2012. Even have a small 1+ lber in 3rd. Imagine that.

My TFO Temple Fork Rods are here and are definitely the best feeling/action rods I have fished with. Come by and check out these excellent rods built with G Loomis technology.

My mud minnows can survive through the winter for live baiters even in my limited hour winter schedule. They will fish all winter; even in freezing water. Call for availabilty but should have all the time.

Not too late for Christmas presents, I can help you with your Power Pole, trolling motor, and Costa Del Mar needs. Also have gift certificates good for 1 year from purchase.

I hope weather allows great winter fishing and have ample opens for a fun trip with me fishing for trout and/or rock. Call for bookings. I also have access to a great 2 Bedroom house right on Dawson Creek, dock and all. You can catch right off dock too. Call Chris @ 919 215 3566 for detail and reservations and mention you got info from me.

Wednesday, Dec 15 will be my last regular hours day until March 1, 2011. I will be around to assist anyone during this time by calling in advance or if you see me at shop. Live bait can be bought by calling me first to find out how I work it. Call me for details or assistance/charters.
