    Batson eglass lol. I'll make it look pretty but I'm not going to spend much $$$ on anything that I'm gunna be swinging around on a pier lol. I think I spent $13 on the blank, $25 on the guides, and $5 on the reel seat and the grips

    I thought about bout getting a batson rain shadow blank instead but it was $45 versus $15 and I'd rather spend the money on my kinging rod rather than the plugging rod which will probably be beat to heck. Looking to build it on a Hercules inshore light.

    also ncstatefisher look at your "hull truth" private messages. A friend of mine has a question about your rod dryer he sent you.

    also a bit off topic but if you want to do marbleing get testors model enamel paints. They have a solvent you have to pour off but they have some awsome colors. Like you can find the exact color of a specific vintage car or the exact colors of a branch of the military. They are like 1.84 per small bottle and 2.85 for the large bottles. Both will last you at least a couple dozen rods. Hangar 18 hobbies in cary has them in the back.

    Someone asked on another shad thread about the shad run time frame. I haven't been fishing for them long enough to give a good answer, but I think the main run will be between mid March to mid April. Someone will know better than my guess.
    Not sure if the Grifton Shad Festival has a website, but if so, that would be a good source since they have a shad fishing contest. I do know that in years past, shad have been caught in January for this festival.

    Is there anywhere to launch that is closer to Pitchkettle than Maple Cypress?

    There use to be a ramp below the old closed pitchketle ramp called Pelican landing. It was within site of the 90 degree bend in the river and entrance to pitchkettle creek. I have not been down below core creek in a few years so I don't know if it is still open to the public. It was a pay ramp.

    core creek landing is below Maple cypress but it is a mile up core creek so maple would be just as close probably. be careful in the neuse. there are old pilings in several spots that have a lot of damaged lower units credited to them. One is river right below maple cypress about 1/2 to 3/4 mile. these are old pilings that had walls attached to them for barges to get behind them, there is also 1 set of them just above maple cypress river right also and each of these probably has 20-30 broken off pilings


    If you zoom in on this pic to the right of my sons head below the tallest tree you can see a set of these pilings. these come out a good ways from the bank at an arch and then parallel the bank ..they are aprox 50 yds long. these are this time of year below the water level as in this pic the water was low. I know of 4 sets of these.

    added: the set of pilings in the pic is just above maple cypress

    clane should know. He lives close to there. I've seen a pier, but always put my power boat in at the Core Creek landing.
