The Fish Made in America

Postby SOBX » Sun Mar 23, 2014 6:28 pm

From the home front, some fine times with the that fed Washington's troops before he crossed the Delaware,were once so thick in coastal rivers the native Americans sent kids to scoop them up with baskets, and not only ate em but used em as fertilizer! :D

Even with the high water levels and cooler than normal water temps, if you know where to go and what to do when you get there, you can have a blast with both American (white) & hickory shad.

While the Roanoke is waiting for some stable flows (should start this week), the creeks off the Neuse have been outstanding, and they're 2 hours closer to Harkers, (hour and 15 minutes instead of 3 solid hours). Several 100 plus fish long half days, but an average trip on the Neuse is closer to 3 1/2 to 5 dozen of so absolutely gorgeous fish from those tannic stained waters up in the bushes amongst 200 year old cypress trees that are homes to nexting bald eagles, wood ducks, wild turkeys, and just more stuff than I can list.

Just hard to have fun bending 3 & 4wts thanks to willing little silver bullets, and Lord knows how much fun a 4/5lb white shad can bring to the party!


Good Fishing!!!
