I fished the River Bassin Trail this past Saturday and though I didn't finish in the top ten(that was my goal) I had a decent day and finished 15th. One big fished would of put me in the top ten but it wasn't to be. The Highlight of the day was I caught a good solid 13-14 inch Roanoke on my second cast. I was a little stunned and still half asleep so I didn't even measure that fish on my board and then 2 or 3 casts later I landed another big Roanoke that barely touched the 12 inch mark for a Citation.
Both hit a 3/8 oz white Booya spinnerbait .


Not a bad day for a section of river I had never fished before. Fishwhisperer and I had scouted this section last year from the bank after fishing a nearby section and catching 4 citations that day(2 each) . FW has been dying to fish this section and it shows a lot of promise.

added: got to thinking that the size for a citation was not 12 inches so I looked at the NCWRC page...size for a Roanoke is 11 inches so second fish doesn't barely make it. makes it and adds an inch

Yeah. To me it looked like they both were at first. Did the first one get the main hook? What is a noke...?

Nice fish and just did some research on this trail...... Looks like a nicely setup Tournament Trail....... Will definitely check the Raleigh date out...........
