    Default Slamming on the lower Neuse

    Hit up the lower Neuse on Friday 9/3 chasing bull reds. I knew where to go from past trips and they didn't let me down. As we pulled up the area, cut the motor and lowered the trolling motor, off to the front we see bulls busting bait. We grabbed the rods with popping corks and let the fun begin. After several fish and the bite eased off we ventured off for other opportunities.


    I knew a place where we normally catch some specks this time of year on the main river. So off we go in pursuit.
    We found some in short order but they were small, but it was a trout. We caught a few, had the winds and clouds pic up so we headed closer back to the ramp. Caught these on a white 17MR and my buddy caught his on a 17MR MG.


    Said well all I need is a flatfish to make a slam and just happened to know where 1 might be hiding. Made a detour from the ramp an pulled to an area we have found some and went knocking on their front door. We were tossing Gulp 5 inch Swimming Mullet in Pearl White on 1/4 ounce jig heads. Ended up with a short flat fish.

    With a Slam under our belt we called it a day and headed back into the sunset for a sunny/rainy ride back home.



    Forgot to add Doc Stewart, Retired US Air Force/EZ Bait and tackle, Goldsboro.
    with his first bull red at 42 inches.

    Great pics and story Scott. Congrats on your retirement again. I am planning on making it count the first time. Although a few hours a week doing something fun would help with fishing money.

    Does this mean you going to be able to make some of the weekend M&G's now? If you find yourself with an itch to come to the mountains let me know, I would be glad to hunt some mountain trout or river smallies with you. I got a spare room and a spare yak.

    I know what you're saying, but an old timer once told me, "The farther you are from retirement the better it looks, the closer it gets it don't look quite as good".

    As I've gotten older I know exactly what he means.

    It all comes down to health conditions, both for yourself and loved ones including your fishing buddies. Fish today for tomorrow may never come.

    Congrats Scott on your retirement !!!!

    X2 on crabman00. Just because a person is retired doesn't mean there isn't challenges.
