Me and my brother in law took the kayaks to a creek near new bern today and caught one yellow perch, several bluegill, one nice chain pickerel, and found a school of suspended crappie in 25 foot of water and caught probably 15. The water clarity was good and the water temp was 41 to 43. Fun day! Everything was caught on shrimp.
Very nice! I am going to try to pry a few panfish out of the upper Neuse tomorrow. I am leaving my fish finder at home; they are only releasing 200 cfs right now. I will be floating in 1' - 4' and casting over into 4' - 10'. I really want to try some of the side creeks down that way sometime. I love those backwater paddles.
