Good News, Good News
More good news is that water temps are perfect for top water action.
Good news is that water levels look good for a successful spawn, barring no more deluges upstream. A successful spawn this year would be really, really good news, considering that 2 of the last 5 years have been a bust and almost no baby striped bass were produced.
For the fishermen on the Roanoke, they are now getting the best of it.....and sometimes a few hours of oddly slow fishing......that's when the stripers are preparing to do what they came here to do and food is just not a priority.
From those anglers who are getting the best of it, here are some reports and pics:
"Thanks to you and Greg for some great striper fishing yesterday and this morning. We had a blast. We'll probably be looking you up at some point in the future for our next adventure, whether it's the Roanoke or elsewhere!" ------Matt
"When the fish ran drag after landing 40 plus Stripers I thought we had stuck a game changer. Ended up being an awesome Cat! Released fish an went on to catch another 40 or so Stripers on the half. Dang where are my scales?" ----Capt. Mitch Blake
