    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...

    Had election day off from work, so after I voted I had to put the kayak in to get on some fish. Fished for about 3 and 1/2 hours and it turned into a great day. Caught several trout in the 18-22 inch range, and decided to keep two of the bigger ones to eat. While searching for trout the reds...

    Planning to visit our daughter at Black Mountain, near Asheville. Want to take son-in-law trout fishing with bait. Anyone know where to go? Also, where to go for musky?

    On Sunday I decided to load the yak and target flounder around fort fisher. Since the season closes for rec anglers in October, (which is dumb) felt like I should try and catch a few for food. Most of my citation-size flounder have come in October/November too but anyway, back to the report ;)...

    Haven't gotten to post in a while, but I've been fishing a bit more lately. Topwater drum bite has been slow for me, flounder fishings been alright, not like last summer though. So I've been switching it up to other species. Fished Fort Fisher area and decided to target sheepshead. I've caught...

    Looking to head down to Holden Beach next week, looking to fish inshore/ near shore reefs. We were down a couple of weeks ago and not much happening then, wondering if the bite has picked up since then? :confused:

    These were my first fish of the New Year, I'm happy with this start to the 2016 fishing season. Skunked kayak fishing past 2 trips. Works kept me busy but I got out to one of my surf fishing spots today. Caught 5 trout total, kept these 3 for food. Each one was a little bigger than the next...

    Been a couple weeks since my last report, but I've been hitting the surf when I can. I like fishing from my kayak or skiff, but nothing beats the surf during winter months-though it hasn't felt like winter until recently. Caught these two on an outgoing tide from the beach this week, before...

    Since my move to Carolina Beach from Hampstead I've been trying some different areas in the surf. The past two days I've walked the beach after work and fished for roughly an hour each time. Today the fishing picked up pretty good. Caught 2 trout, 2 drum, and a short flounder in about 45 mins to...

    I haven't seen a whole lot report-wise on Carolina and Kure beach trout and drum fishing from the surf. Obviously not asking for locations, but in general, anyone doing any catching while throwing mirrolures/jigs in the surf? Thinking about giving it a go after work today.

    Once I realized my Panthers were going to handily beat the brakes off the Falcons, I decided to hit the beach and surf fish for some trout at halftime. ;) Fished from about 2:30 until 5:00 during the incoming tide. Saw plenty of small-looking baitfish flipping in the water, not much wind, bird...

    Despite moving to Carolina Beach I visited my old stomping grounds behind Topsail to fish a productive spot. Nothing was going on there so I went on a little search and found some fish. Caught 7 trout, all keepers at 15-16 inch size like the one pictured, but let them go due to size. Caught an...

    Put my kayak in and fished the Topsail/Hampstead backwaters today. Wind was pretty stiff, and there was a lot of boat traffic. Waited a while to make my way to fish the spot I found a couple weeks ago, until boaters had cleared the surrounding area. The bite was pretty decent, didn't appear many...

    Since the carolina panthers had a bye week there was only one thing I could think of to do-fish of course! The windy conditions made it challenging but I managed to kayak to an area that was somewhat sheltered from the wind, emphasis on somewhat. Basically I drifted and threw paddle tail jigs of...
  16. Saltwater Fishing
    I've been a member of the site for a while, but this is my first post. I thought I'd wait until I had something worth posting. Fairly new to saltwater fishing, but caught my first trout, as well as a decent striper yesterday in a creek off of the Neuse River. Both were caught on A Mirrolure...

    I've been really jealous of all the beautiful Speckled Trout being caught at the NC coast recently, so I had to do something about it….Mountain style... One of my wife's friend came into town for a wedding this weekend. So we braved the cold weather and headed out to the Tuckaseegee for some...

    It's been a long time coming but I finally found the trout. It has been a lot of work but thanks to the postings through NCAngler and a lot of help and motivation from my friends in the area I had the tools and know-how to get him on and get him in. Prior to catching this guy I had several large...

    Took my cousin and the boat out Saturday morning looking for some early flounder. Wind was howling but managed to find a few creeks that were fishable. Hooked an over slot Red (well over 30") early in the morning....we fought it for maybe 10 minutes before losing him on some dock pilings. We...

    This was my first time fishing for trout, thought I would take a day trip up to the Mitchell River and see what it was like... I plan on getting into fly fishing for trout and carp now! HAD A BLAST! Check out my video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PELimcB4lVs
