    Default Cape Fear bass survey

    http://www.ncwildlife.org/Portals/0/...Black_Bass.pdf


    Currently, the Cape Fear River black bass population is dominated by small fish with 78% of all largemouth bass collected smaller than the minimum legal size limit of 14 inches and 100% of all spotted bass smaller than the legal limit.

    Good Article. I agree with it. Bass fishing there the other day I was amazed when I caught 2 spotted bass about 5 inches long on a 3/8 oz spinner bait with large willow blade. When compared to the bait, the fish was barely bigger. I looked at him and said " Just what were you thinking". My son had a good laugh over that.

    I only fish two relatively short sections of the Cape Fear but the data seems spot on to me. Too many little fish.

    I agree, but wonder which part of the Cape Fear they surveyed. That's a really long river!
