In general, how long does it take after a rain for creeks to have fishable numbers of specs, drum,etc.? It rained yesterday, so will it be bass and brim on Saturday, or trout and drum?
Im not sure what you mean by this....the entire Neuse River, Pamlico River, and Western Pamlico Sound are non-tidal, and they are stock full of everything year round.If it's tidal it gets flushed twice a day. If it isn’t, they aren't likely to be there to begin with...
That may be true as far as having to worry about getting stuck or having noticeable current, but technically speaking those areas have tides. Here is the tide chart for the Pamlico at Washington (about as far inland as it is called the Pamlico):.the entire Neuse River, Pamlico River, and Western Pamlico Sound are non-tidal
Jab,you can even see the tidal effect all the way to greenville...just sayin
Please notice that the reporting location says Core Creek Bridge. That's not on Washington. That is in Newport/Beaufort. There isn't a lunar tide on the Neuse, Bay, or Pamlico Rivers. That salt that doesn't swim upstream, gets blown with the wind, just like the water. Winds cause the rise and fall that you see.That may be true as far as having to worry about getting stuck or having noticeable current, but technically speaking those areas have tides. Here is the tide chart for the Pamlico at Washington (about as far inland as it is called the Pamlico):
It's only a foot or two that far up, but they do get water surging in and out on a tidal cycle. Salt doesn't swim upstream; the tides have an effect further than you have to worry about them as far as navigation goes.
I "edited" your post just like the media does. Makes it seem like your "spinning" your statements?There is a lunar tide fluctuation for those bodies of water.
That's harsh IMO. Have some coffee.You get very argumentative over things you know very little about. You dont even understand how the rain affects these bodies of water, and you regularly ask how to fish them, yet you want to try and educate and dispute those who literally spend their lives with the water literally in there backyard.
What he means is you can't argue with his web research. Lots of people go out on the web, find a response and post it as if it is knowledge they've had for years. That still leaves two challenges: separating the wheat from the chaff (cuz there's more chaff than wheat out there) and having enough knowledge to know if the info you found applies to the particular situation. His web resource told him there was a tide so you don't get to argue with his "science"..We can't argue science versus other beliefs in this forum. Our opinions differ. Let's move on.
Can I come stay at your house too? Do you have good food? Are there any chicks? I like to watch football.Haha how is it science?? It literally doesnt exist as per DMF and NOAA. There is at most a negligible 4"-5" lunar tide fluctuation for those bodies of water. This not opinion, its scientific fact. If you want...you can come stay at my house on the creek for a year and measure the tides.
