I just brought my boat down from Roanoke Rapids. I fish the lakes and river up there for stripers normally. I am trying to get into fishing down here, but the techniques are a little foreign to me; I guess it can't be much different from what I'm used to. I was thinking of trying to catch some stripers in the Cape Fear, but I wasn't really sure on where to go, maybe around Smith Creek, but I don't even know if they've come that far up yet. Let me know if you have any thoughts.Welcome aboard Rip Shrednum. We look forward to hearing about your fishing ventures!
I live just north of you and fish the Topsail and WB area. I fish out of a 19' CC. I do some inshore and near shore fishing just about year round. How bout you?
