Fishing at home

Capt. Gary Dubiel has been pretty busy this winter with good fishing in the upper parts of the Neuse/Trent and around Oriental. A lot of this fishing is technique-oriented on artificial baits, but he's been getting enough bites that the customers are learning a lot and they're catching fish.
4 hour half day trips are $350 and full days are $600, drop us a line and we'll put you together.

In addition to the hickory shad, a few white shad are showing up on the Neuse and Roanoke Rivers. We have shad trips available in both locations for these prices.

From April 18-May 15 striped bass trips are available on the Roanoke River. Long half days (5-6 hours) are $500 including bait. Full days (8-10 hours) are $700 including bait. Dicsounts available for fly fishing only trips. Space is limited and advance booking is recommended.

Double header pups. These guys are going to really start growing fast when the water warms up a little, putting on an inch a month through the summer. In addition to pups, Gary is reporting decent catches of specks. It's good to know that they didn't all get hit by the freeze.

Capt. Dave Stewart is also running these light tackle trips and I may be joining these guys to help out on the river over the next few weeks.
