Wanna get the bite started?

Just get me out of town, this is from Capt. James on the Dragin Fly:

"well boss the fishing is on fire again, today we was 12 for 18 on sailfish and 2 nice mahi" That figures.

At least the weather is nice and the fish are biting here. Excellent reports from the Roanoke are coming in, the shad are super thick at Weldon and there are a lot of stripers in Williamston. It looks like these 80 degree days are going to put things on schedule. We still have a few openings for the last week of "keeper" season at the end of April and plenty of openings for the first couple of weeks of May for catch and release, top water action and the best of the fly fishing. By May 16 the ocean waters should be warm enough for the cobia. The big boat will be in the water, but we're going to leave a skiff up in Weldon and will be running trips on the Roanoke for as long as the fish stay up there, through the end of May.

This is a March Neuse River striper pic from Capt. Gary Dubiel. He and Capt. Joe Ward have been having some great striper fishing right here in our back yard.

While Capts. Ray Massengill, Greg Voliva, Lee Parsons, David Haddock, Rod Thomas and I will be up on the Roanoke; Capt. Gary Dubiel, Joe Ward and Bryan Goodwin will be taking advantage of the good mixed bag fishing here at home.
