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.
