I have to admit i'm getting a little discouraged with the neuse catfishing. Have been out 5 or 6 times on the Neuse with 1 fish to show for it. I have been using cut frozen shad. 2 rods out with Carolina rigs. Fishing the outside of a gradual bend near a creek mouth that gives it somewhat of an eddy. I have also fished a shallow flat one night. 2 hours or so each time. (I know it isn't that long but I have a job and I'm on a kayak.) Been quitting around 930 to 1030. Water temp was up to to 65 and the river is in the 7.5 foot range near fort barnwell. I really think my chances would improve with the water warming to 70 or over and coming down another 2 feet or so... What do you all think?
