    Default Martin Marietta Park New Bern

    Anyone done any fishing in the big lake at the new Martin Marietta Park in New Bern? Always heard rumors that it holds some big fish. Walked around casting from shore today with no luck, there seemed to be a rather large flat off the shore and I couldn’t cast passed it. Saw some mullet jumping, birds diving, and large blow ups further than I can cast (assuming off of drop offs). Thinking of launching a kayak sooner or later. Any advice or first hand knowledge of what’s out there?

    To my knowledge I thought it was off limits. Heard folks were run out of there. Check before you go.

    There is a sign out there stating it’s open to the public with a list of rules.

    They’re there. Used to be open to the river, you could motor into it.

    Be nice if they'd open it back up into the river.

    If it was ever open to the river it's news to me, maybe it was but I never heard of it.
