    ​I have seen numerous threads on NCAngler about winter stripers on Kerr Lake, but all seem to be by bait and spin fishermen. Me and a buddy would like to give it a try next Monday, if there's any chance of success. Thinking of trying 250-350 grain sinking line with clousers or deceivers...

    Guided a client on the Mitchell River yesterday. One of the worst days I've ever had on a NC trout stream. Yes, we caught fish. Yes, I saw a really nice fish. But all in all, it reminded me of what the Mitchell looks like in August: low, clear water with 1-2 fish per pool (average). I'm...

    So I caught this huge hog on my fly rod the other night. I was thinking it was a white catfish, but others are telling me it's a channel. Can anyone positively ID this guy?

    Ashleigh Brilliant is a cartoonist and author. I always liked his quote about luck: "Maybe I'm lucky to be going so slowly, because I may be going in the wrong direction." I always thought this really hits home when you are in a kayak watching the motor boats pull away from the launch. Well, I...

    Hi all, Haven't done much posting up here, just a lot of reading, so I figured I'd give it a shot. Anyway, I am wondering if anyone knows of any spots in the general area of Beaufort, Morehead, AB, and on down to Emerald Isle that are suitable for wade-fishing for various inshore species. I...
