Howard and Jackson Tucker had lots of action on a beautiful 4th of July morning. We caught plenty of flounder and puppy drum, and we caught a handful of specs and stripers. The stripers were very nice fish, but we couldn’t keep any due to the season being out. We did end up with a couple of keeper flounder and specs. All the puppy drum were in the 10-14″ range, which seems to be the case all over the Pamlico and Neuse Rivers this year. That’s a great sign for next season. These boys got a great intro to live baiting on the river, and I think they were sold on it by the number of bites we got. Just wish we had a few more bigger fish for the cooler.
