Hi everyone me and the wife are heading to Weldon Saturday morning and will need some live bait for striper and dont have a clue where to buy any. We're coming from Raleigh if that helps. Also im wanting the big shiners if possible just because of the price of shad and its easier to keep the shiners alive. Anyways thanks for any input!

one other option is to have a shad rig on the boat too, i'm sure it'd be pretty easy to catch a few shad(hicks/white) down there and use as cut bait

I used to buy my shiners in Wake County to avoid all the hassle around Roanoke Rapids. There used to be a couple of places in Eastern Wake, but not sure if they are even open any more or not.

They were a good 4-5 inches long the large were around 3.5. They did have jumbos that were 5-6 but they were $14 a dozen
