Retired to the Blounts Bay area from the arctic tundra (PA.) I don't know any locals. Got an 18' CS and a fishing rod. What would you do cold rolling on the Pamlico River, with a range of, say from Little Washington to Aurora? Are there conditions where it would be better to stay home, aside from the obvious (wind, icebergs, etc.) I have caught a variety of small fish from the dock before getting the boat - rock, flounder, bream, spot, catfish, and lots of tasty big crabs. I am a meat fisherman, still have fun catching nice panfish. I figure it will take awhile for me to learn. I have a Lowrance Elite4X sonar, a conventional anchor with 100' rope, and a 70hp Suzuki. Am not looking for any spot burns, just general advice on locating fish. What would you do if you had to start over? Thank you.
