Was finishing up a bad round of golf today at the NBGCC and noticed stripers rolling at the surface and eating topwater, so I raced home around 5:45 and got a few rods. Got back and threw everything I had in the truck at them: stick baits, mirrolures, super spooks, bucktails tipped with gulp, lead heads with jerk shad patters, etc. Nothing was working. I think I had one strike, but couldn't tell. They seemed perfectly content to cruise around and sip the surface of the water from time to time. ****, I'd have been better off using a cast net! :rolleyes:


Any of you guys fishing the Neuse/Trent have better luck today? Any advice?

Stripers

Another vote for gar. Stripers, when they are chasing bait, literally explode on the surface.

Glad you didn't if they were in fact Gar, which it does sound like to me, but I wasn't there to see so I'm not gonna claim it to be something that I didn't see... From what you said though it sounds just like a Gar.
