Gary Hurley and Adam Meyer from Wrightsville Beach had a great day finding out what all the Roanoke River hype has been about.  Being beach bums with mostly tidal saltwater inshore fishing experience, these guys decided to make the long trip up to Weldon to try their luck at some freshwater striper action on the Roanoke.  They both caught fish on live bait and jigging artificials. I think they headed home with a new-found respect for the Roanoke River and its excellent striper fishing.  Everyone had a great time, and we enjoyed what turned out to be a beautiful day after some light showers in the morning.  Stay tuned for pictures……………………….
