Same lures and techniques are used in the creeks around New Bern as those you are catching all the small ones around Swansboro. Try Broad, Goose, Beards, Slocum and Hancock Creeks.

Trout usually school according to size. If you are catching spikes, move to another location. If you sit in that spot you will catch a lot of short ones with limited keepers.

Monday, Nov 14th starts with only "4 speckled trout" to keep at 14 inches in length.
