  1. Conservation & Regulation
    I confess I'm more than a little dubious about stocking programs, especially when it's to support "put and take" fishing. My view is the risks outweigh the rewards and if you have to keep restocking then you're not managing the resource well. So that's my bias. I came across this article on...
  2. Meet and Greet
    My Hobie Pro Angler and I just moved to Tarobor, NC from Stockton, MO. I've read some good things about the crappie in the Tar Reservoir, and it's only about 30 minutes away, so I guess I'll start there.

  4. NC Piedmont
    Went a couple of weeks ago on the river about 1 1/2 hours up river from the Tar River Reservoir with a buddy from work. He had the thrill of catching this 35-pounder, i had the better thrill of cleaning it. We ate like kings at work!!! Also caught a smaller 13 pounder the same night.

  7. General Fishing Topics

Just what we need, more nitrogen in the Neuse and Tar/Pamlico river basins. The waste...

    Went down to the G-vegas town commons for some conversation and some shad fishing mixed in... Caught one fish and missed about 3 or 4 hits in about an hour and half. Only fish I saw caught was mine. Caught one 2lb'r white shad last week. So I thought today should be better...water was real low...
