You want to catch slot drum? Soak cut fish (mullet,pigfish,pinfish,croaker,) under a cork around boat docks in the creeks of the lower neuse and you should hook up. No drum in the upper neuse as that is the freshwater portion.

Ok sounds good but when I do start to use artificial baits what should I get? I ran into a little money and before its all gone I want to get some stock up on the good artificial stuff just incase I have hard times then I can still fish with no worries :) what can I say fishing is in my blood and runs fast and fierce.

Trigger's reply, "horrible" does not adequately describe the Neuse right now. Poor water quality plus the menhaden die-off has totally - and I mean totally - shut down the bite. Conditions like we experienced this week explain why someone invented scotch!
