I have been avoiding bass fishing on the Neuse, even though I live 10 minutes from the Bill Lane ramp in Goldsboro. I just don't know how to do it. I went out a few weeks ago and got tossed around in the current for 30 minutes or so and then went home. Should I be avoiding the main river and fishing the creeks? Should I make a drag chain? Should I stick to getting a fish every couple trips at Wiggins Mill ? I lost a 4-5 pounder there today.

Main river is fine as long as the cfm's are normal.....creek mouths are awesome spots but i would put in and have someone pick you up at the the next takeout assuming it is 5 miles or less.....throw white or chartreuse spinnerbaits with a trailer hook .

One of these weekends we need to get together and yak some of the creeks I bass fish in off the Neuse. I can't promise monster bass but I can guarantee some good numbers and a chance at monster bowfin and bass in the 2-3# range.

cant really get into the creeks around goldsboro but it wouldn't be hard to get to a mouth and drop anchor for a few minutes, make repeated casts to the creek. use buzz, popper, cranks, spinnerbaits. you can catch multiple fish from pretty much every one of these places. would be tedious if 20' but tossing anchor 3' at a time is nothing. the lower the water is the better, as far as your current, and for the bass fishing as well...
