    Jbarefoot22, Swampin', and myself had been schemin' on a trip east all week. Between moving and the opening of bow season, trips have been less frequent, and this needed to change. The clock struck 4 AM Sunday, and we departed for the sunrise service. We launched just a smidge later than we...

    It was one of those mornings where you contemplate staying in bed. I am really glad I chose to grab the rain gear and head for the landing!! I love throwing top water plugs and for a majority of the morning the trout, rat reds and stripers where cooperating. I chunked a zara spook jr ( you can...
  4. Saltwater Fishing
    Hello brothas, So here is the deal, I have been going out over the past week early in the morning for the topwater bite. I have been using a skitter walker mostly but also sometimes throw a yozuri crystal popper. I have had some luck with blues and lizard fish but have yet to put anything in the...

    Have been scouting new waters before my friend comes down from Greensboro to fish this weekend. He's an avid bass fisherman, told him I'd try to put him on some drum. Caught these 2 while walking the bank and casting topwaters and vudu shrimp. Lots of blow-ups. Drum were busting bait actively...
  6. Saltwater Fishing
    Didn't have time to load the kayak today so I decided to try a new spot that I found with bank access behind Topsail. I haven't bank fished the creeks/bays in a while, so thought I'd give it a shot. The water looked fishy but I always thought it was a bit shallow to hold decent fish-I was wrong...
  7. NC Coast
    Today my buddy and I loaded the yaks for an afternoon trip and it turned out to be a good one. Both of us boated several slot drum, and we kept our limit for a fish fry later this week. The drum were hitting most of the stuff we threw at them: cut mullet, and topwaters worked best. The...
  8. 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...
  9. Saltwater Fishing
    Just moved to Leland, NC. Right off 133, Near Brunswick river park and Sturgeon creek. Just wanting to hear some fish reports about the area. Anything helps, Lures, Species, times, etc. I've been hearing that the salinity level is almost zero due to the rain in the past year, Kinda scares me! I...

    I have been doing alot of topwater bass fishing after work and have caught several nice fish. But I have lost 3-4 very nice bass in the 7-8 lb. range on the Top Pup and the Skitterwalk. Both are 3 1/2 " inch or so lures with medium size treble hooks. The fish hits it and goes under for a good...

  12. Kayak Fishing
    Hi Everyone! As promised I'm back with another video! After fishing all morning without a nibble I almost gave up and went home. I'm now glad I didn't! I commited to paddling up the lake and into a creek to find some shallow water. After what seemed like an eternity, I located a nice area with...
  13. Saltwater Fishing
    Went out on Sunday around 7-ish out of Upper Goose Creek (Dinah's Landing) Water was very low. Little breeze out of the S/SE that picked up from 2mph to 8/10 mph steady. Checked the salinity (my bottled water was saltier). So probably no Trout or Reds in the area. The usual spots were about 1.5...
  14. NC Coast
    fished my secret spot near Cape Lookout parts of friday & saturday with friends. on first day we started fishing at end of falling tide. i started with a big surface popper -- and got 4 hookups on first 5 casts. finally settled on a old TogDog with mashed down barbs that i was willing to lose...
  15. Fly-Fishing
    Its that time of year again and bass are killing the topwater lures. One of my favorites is the APDiver...(Allen Peyton---aka...Tarheel Fly Flinger). This is a great fly and you can tie it weedless. That's Allen this is a great one..:D These floater/divers are kinda a knock off of a Dahlberg...

    i caught several big blues a couple of weeks ago on topwater plugs (super spook, chug-bug). used a 50lb flourocarbon leader, so probably just got lucky that one of the choppers didn't cut me off. do others use steel leaders with topwater plugs when targeting blues? thanks for any rigging tips...
