Trip Info

The Catch
Bass (Striped)

Pre spawn striper and hickory shad fishing remains good on the Neuse River above New Bern.  Fishing soft plastics on deep edges and in creek mouths remains product for striped bass.  Shad continue moving into feeder creeks and responding to tandem shad rigs.  Look for plenty of action on both over the next few weeks.
