Jesse, James, and Jake all enjoyed catching some fish near New Bern today. I fished the Neuse because they guys were vacationing in Emerald Isle and wanted a shorter drive. It was interesting to compare the fishing on the Neuse vs. the Pamlico for this time of year. It seems like the both river systems are inundated with lots of Menhaden. The resident striped bass fishing is about the same around structure. The Pamlico seems to have more flounder and puppy drum. The trout fishing seems to be about the same. We fished mostly around the trestle on topwater, with artificials, and with some 3-4″ live menhaden later in the day and managed a decent catch of mixed size stripers. Lots of smaller fish but some really nice ones in the mix. We also caught a few flounder and puppy drum downriver. It was exceptionally hot and humid. I’m really glad to have some cooler weather now. Stay tuned for some more reports from the Pamlico River.
