I live in Jacksonville NC. I want to drive no further than an hour and a half to do some striped bass fishing. I've heard that they are in Cape Fear and Trent River both. I want to try Trent river in Pollocksville first. Has anyone ever fished or know anything about stripers in the Trent? What are the preferred fishing techniques, time of day, bait and so on? Your knowledge on this matter will be MUCH appreciated!

Can't help you with Stripers in the Trent River but there are plenty of them in the Cape Fear & NE Cape Fear Rivers. You'll need a boat (you didn't mention if you are boat or bank fishing) or written permission from land owners to fish there. Peters Point, the RR bridge and the rice patty ditches north of town on the NE Cape Fear River are good places. The striper fishing in the Cape Fear River Basin is catch and release only.
