    White Perch

    Happy Memorial Day and thanks,Vets! Have not started saltwater yet. I did have my best freshwater season I can remember, though... Crappie have been off the charts since January. Have released bluegill, red ear sunfish,crappie, and carp citations this spring. I did not fish for blue catfish but maybe 5 times this winter as the pan fishing has been too good to pass! Anyway, have a good summer and will see you on the beach most any time now. BA Oh...white perch are everywhere...

    Back Bay blitz!

    Well, in the spirit of "keeping the people updated", here is my fishing report from the North River in North Carolina from Saturday, 3/31. In excess of 75, maybe 100 large crappie and SUPER large bluegill, with a mix in of bass. All caught under bobbers with either small minnows or night crawlers. Best bank fishing day I have had in years for those species....maybe ever! Did not see or hear a soul all day! And I fished alone and released EVERYTHING. If ya wanna catch fish in the spring or winter, I suggest you: 1)Get a North Carolina License 2)Go exploring everything bigger than a mud puddle, and don't be afraid to change up tactics. We fished four out of the last six Saturdays in Back Bay with FANTASTIC FISHING, up to the middle of March when it all changed up and the crappie were mostly runts...then I went south this week. 3)Meat baits, baby...I don't remember catching ANYTHING this late winter/early spring on artificial....and I have tried using them every week. Good luck to you all. BA PS I think I could have caught on flyrod, but it is tough to do when you are getting bites all day with hardly a break. Maybe next weekend.

    Back Bay blitz!

    Fished two consecutive weekends with medium minnows and caught many large crappie with bluegills and bass mixed in. Back Bay has the fish if you have the time to go look for them! We have been using 9-12' crappie rods which are a BLAST with 2 lb crappie! Keep alert for snakes if you are prowling around...they are,too! And are they cranky!!!
  4. It has been a few years since striper fishing was good from the surf locally. I remember well, when stripers rebounded back in the nineties, taking a limit from the surf consistently. Now it has been a couple years since I have caught stripers at all, and they were freshwater or way back up in the rivers. I know how much local anglers LOVE keeping secrets, so I am wondering if you all are ,maybe, catching but not reporting. It seems a shame to have striped fish around Va,Beach , where me and the grandkids can get to them, without scratching a few ourselves. Anyway, we love checking out RUMORS, SECOND-HAND REPORTS, and WILD FANTASIES so give us a break (and a clue). Merry Christmas! BA

    Winter Carp!

    Every winter I task myself with some project to while away the gloomy days. (People are like cocoa in milk...if you don't keep them stirred up they settle to the bottom) This year I am going to fish for carp....British style. Winter is a tough time for carp fishing. Doing it with the right tackle and bait makes it a challenge. The videos on YOU TUBE that have caused this mania are the hundreds of videos on the "TOTALLY AWESOME FISHING SHOW".Very entertaining. The results sofar...two mediocre carp at STUMPY LAKE... If any of you kind folks have any known carp spots tbat me and the grandkids can give a go, please contact me. ..really good spots give me a PM. THANKS AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL! Black Adder

    On the other hand, I have gotten two VERY hot tips today, so we will let weather and wind direction dictate.(Which usually means "See you on the beach!" )

    Sad to reply to your own text! Anyway saltwater season over (except specks) and likely catfish and carp next week end. NC freshwater calls!

    RED DRUM

    Another Saturday! Rainy,windy, cool and damp. Caught a 10" bluefish. Fished 0700 to 1730hrs. Likely have pneumonia next. Anyway, fished next to Adam, who is also pretty much hard-core. Somebody print something positive or I am going catfishing this weekend! BA PS Adam, I was also circled by an adult coyote at BBNWR Saturday. I gave him a piece of the spot you gave me and I think he said thank you and to pass on his regards.

    And this Saturday I caught 1 28" puppy for the second Saturday in a row.Had one non stop fast run that I broke off near the spool on my Ambassadeur nine. Likely big ray or shark. All fish caught on low tide.

    Well, hope to be on the beach early tomorrow. It is always interesting to see what the beach looks like.I suspect today it will be grassy and dirty. Maybe there is a new sluice and grandson and I will be first to fish it.... BA

    Andrew, thanks for the PM. I didn't post over here but I did on "P&S" about releasing 6 Saturday up to 40" and a big speckled trout,which was delicious. Course, I was by myself. Grandkids say "hi!". Chip
