Went out Saturday to Rose Bay / Germantown area. Fishing was slow but we managed a couple keeper flounder and some nice trout had to go back in the water. I also landed a nice 4 spot slot red.

Apparently it is cow nose ray mating season as we saw thousands and hooked several by accident just because they were so thick. Also saw a huge dead bear washed up on the bank stuck in attack mode with claws and teeth out.

I've got to get down there to go fishing. Duck hunted there a couple times a year for the past 10 years. It's a beautiful area for sure...I bet that bear was rank if you got down wind of it. :eek:

Nice catch. I went to Rose Bay Saturday with no results. Did see a lot of the Rays. Did you put over at the Wildlife Ramp?

Nice work. Glad to see someone is catching some drum. Your avatar is awesome by the way.

Wonder if that was the same bear we saw swimming across Rose Bay about 3 weeks ago?

I have heard some of N.C. biggest black bears live at the coast. Tripy.

I believe the world record black bear was taken in eastern NC in the 90s. High 800s or something like that.

The heaviest black bear reliably weighed was an 880-pound 10-year-old male killed in Craven County, North Carolina, in November 1998. It is not only a NC record, it is also the North American record black bear!

Nice catch! A buddy and I put in at Germantown on Saturday. They reworked the docks so it's a lot safer now. We caught 8 trout, 1 small flounder and 1 small blue. A few of the trout would have been keepers. All were caught on white pogies.

That record black bear was shot right near Vanceboro. It was eating dead pigs thrown into a dumpster at a hog farm for a while. Easy way for a bear to get nice and fat!
