George I've been helping with a DMF tagging study on the
Trout this Fall and Winter. My goal was to tag fish in a lot of locations
which I did accomplish. This Fall I dotted the map from the Rock Jetty at
the light across the Pamlico Sound up the Neuse River to New Bern and then
bounced to the Pamlico river fishing my way out and ended on the Pungo.
Needless to say there were fish in all locations and I've covered a broad
spectrum. DMF said I could not tag anymore undersize
I've watched these fish grow over the past
several months and with the extended warm weather and mild winter has things looking
I'm not saying that all the Trout are small, there are some
good ones in the mix (see attached). So if your looking pullage things
are promising, if your looking paperwork for the wall, things are also promising.
On to the cold snap, the Rockfish are gonna bite, I can see the Stripers coming about as fast as I can unhook them.
Come get some, heater is on the boat..
