  1. Freshwater Fishing
    (If you don’t want to read all this I’ve got my questions at the bottom) I'm 16 years old and live outside of Raleigh by Jordan and Harris Lake. I grew up in West Virginia and I'm real familiar with casually fishing for bluegill, bass, trout, etc. I've lived here for a few years and spent...
  2. NC Mountains
    Going to take a couple trips up to the mountains for wading for smallies over the next month or so. I've researched the heck out of areas/rivers/creeks online. Last week the North Toe from Spruce Pine downriver was too fast and muddy to wade. Tried the North Toe above Spruce Pine off Bent...
  3. NC Piedmont
    As is the usual lately, jbarefoot22 and myself met up at a local Neuse River launch after work and set up in our spot just before dark in search of some hungry cats. Just at the edge of dark, I was greeted with the beautiful sound of screaming drag and my rod bouncing back in forth in the...
  4. NC Mountains
    I've fit a few shorter floats into a busy schedule lately on the local flows. It's hard not to when you know the fish are chewing hard right now. We have been catching them on all kinds of lures, but most impressively they have started to take topwater with reckless abandon!! Caught about 15...

    Selling my 2014 FeelFree Lure 11.5. Used about 6 times on various rivers. It has the updated seat. It is at my buddies shop in Asheville, NC where it is on consignment (Asheville Adventure Rentals). I did not get it with the rudder because they are a nuisance on the rivers I fish and more often...
  6. NC Piedmont
    I was fortunate enough to spend the past 2+ days celebrating my batchelor party with some great friends as we fished rivers all over central and eastern NC. River bass are definitely in that early spawn lull and lots of females should be hitting beds in the next few days. Over two and half...
  7. NC Piedmont
    Got out on another new stretch of river last weekend with a couple folks from the site. The bit was up and down all day, but we managed about 55 bass with 11 over 4 lbs and the kicker going 5.5 lbs. We also caught a couple bowfin and lost a giant - the biggest I have ever seen in person. Fish...
  8. NC Piedmont
    My friend Jerry and I got out on a local river on Saturday to see if we could get a few bites. I hadn't fished this stretch of river in about 3 years, so I was anxious to see how it would produce. I caught a couple early on a chatterbait and Jerry caught a couple on a black, ribbontail worm...
  9. Kayak Fishing
    A couple weekends ago MNBassman86 and I got out on the water with a couple reps from Biovex Bait company. They both live in central Florida and were passing through central NC on the way to vacation near Hatteras. When they told us they wanted to go, we went into full planning mode. Our goal...
  10. NC Piedmont
    We had some plans to fish at Tuckertown this weekend, but they fell through, so Bill and I decided to hit a river. A lot of the local flows were looking rough, so we decided to find a new spot. Many of the rivers south and west of the Triangle looked like they were in good shape, which was a...
  11. NC Piedmont
    Bill and I were out for the second weekend in a row. After a lot of debating we made the hour drive from Hillsborough to a stretch of river we had never fished before. We needed to find somewhere clear to do some filming for a bait company Bill is working with and nowhere close to home fit the...

    http://youtu.be/S34JQDEzmbg Went Trout Fishing for the first time on the Mitchell River in Dobson, NC. Had a blast, when I first got there didn't really know what I was getting into. However, 30 min later hooked on to my first trout, AWESOME! I am actually a die hard bass fisherman but decided...
  13. Freshwater Fishing
    Good evening all. I'm back on the site...finally. I'm settled into my home up in Suffolk, VA (was stationed up here from Camp Lejeune). I thought that my NC fishing days were going to be few & far between, however, I've found that I'm only 34 miles from the Chowan River, specifically Shoup's...
  14. Freshwater Fishing
    Hi everyone, I'm pretty new to the site and just getting in to fishing the neuse. I've lived in the Knightdale area for years and have fished local ponds frequently and lakes from time to time but never really realized the type of fishing I was overlooking when it comes to the neuse. I've...
  15. Meet and Greet
    River fishers are a different breed. We embrace the adventure that comes with floating a remote river...lakes barely peak our interest. We often find ourselves submersed knee deep, casting along deep shoals...wading shoes are a must. We fish in all seasons, often dragging over shallow, rocky...
  16. Saltwater Fishing
    Does anyone know about flounder gigging in the Pamlico River? I have heard about people gigging in the Pamlico but wasn't sure if it was in the river or in the bay out near the the outer banks. I've only been down at topsail and had a great time. I am wondering if the water was clear enough...
  17. Freshwater Fishing
    The Broad River was moving pretty good at 800cfs, ( week before was 500), and pretty stained last weekend, but it still had fish biting, alot of dinks, the bigger of them caught was 13-1/2", and 11-1/2" , and alot of bream. The water was somewhat faster than the weekend before...
