Thanks for responding Twilight..It seems even the usual suspects are in short supply. And I know this cold isnt helping. I was trying to find out more about the stripers also. Seems like people are guarded about info (and I get that) or talk about places I am unfamiliar with like the rock piles, or the targets etc. Have you heard of anyone having any luck on that cement pier down by the bridge (rt 17) in Edenton?I live on yeopim creek. Im going to try to figure out the stripers soon. You should be able to catch the usual catfish, bass, and panfish now.
