    Default New Bern Stripers

    My son and I launched at Lawson Creek at 7:15 yesterday morning looking for stripers - long story short - we fished til 2:00 pm and didn't get a strike. There were quite a few boats doing the same thing and I didn't hear of anyone getting into them. We did talk to one guy who had his limit of large mouth in a creek off the Trent.

    We tried soft plastic paddle tails, rattle traps and top water with no luck. I hope others did better.

    Same deal for me too. Put in at Lawson Creek about 8am, fished all the bridges and went out to Fairfield Harbor to. Threw everything I had and did not get a bump. Came out around 1pm - all I can say is it was a beautiful day to be on the water. Spoke to a few folks who said the same thing - don't feel too bad, seems everyone had the same result.

    On a positive note my buddy had been out on Saturday and had some success. He caught 5 with the biggest at 27" and the smallest 21". So they are there - just not feeding when we were there. Second trip in a row for me with no luck

    Next time it will be different................................

    Went out Saturday and caught about 25 with lots of shorts. Did eventually end up with a 2 man limit of legals.
