Trout Report from Capt. Mitch

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 fish.:) 

I've watched these fish grow over the past several months and with the extended warm weather and mild winter has things looking good.

 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..
