Striper run

It has been a busy week starting out with a trout trip then switching over to striped bass.  The past few days my clients had hook into some hard pulling male stripers. Most fish have been 18 to 20 inches but some of the females finally made it up river to join the party.  Benny's [...]

All Finished

Spent my last day on the water yesterday guiding and fishing for stripers for the spring run.  The saltwater run of stripers in Weldon, NC was great this year.  Benny had never really wanted to fish for stripers with a fly rod before, he really enjoys using buck tails and flukes.  I was able to [...]

Went back down to Weldon, NC last week to get my striped bass fix while the fish are here.  Fishing was incredible, the water was lower than my first trip down.  Usually we have to throw 450 grain sinking lines this time of year but with the water lower I did well with a 7 [...]

Spawn or Eat?

The striper fishing this year has been a tough one.  The fish showed up late because of the cold weather and water.  Now the stripers have only one thing in mind and that is spawning, at least that was the case last week.  I and many other anglers struggled to put fish in the boat [...]

Striper Mayhem

We have been catching stripers in the 25 and 26 inch range.  This has been the best average striped bass I have seen in six years.  We still have at least three more weeks of fishing for these hard pulling fish.  Water and air temps are below normal and that will prolong their time here [...]
