Big speckled trout are biting in the Tar and Pamlico rivers, along with striped bass. Stripers, specks on the move in Tar, Pamlico rivers

Richard Andrews of Tar-Pam Guide Service in Bath said two weeks of warm weather had done wonders for the fishing in the Tar and Pamlico rivers.

Paul Brown SoftDine Saltwater Lures

Bomber Mullet

Trout, redfish, flounder, jacks — there aren’t many saltwater fish that won’t eat a finger mullet. That’s why anglers often try their best to impersonate these popular baitfish with the lures they throw.

Knowing this, the folks at Bomber designed the Saltwater Grade Mullet for the various inshore targets with a taste for these morsels.

Different fishing situations call for different styles of kayaks, based upon what each model does best. Paddle your way to fish

Over the past few years, paddle sports have invaded the outdoors world, with no signs of slowing. In particular, fishing from kayaks has grown exponentially as people realize convenience, cost and accessibility can be found in an otherwise expensive hobby. No longer needed are motors with a hefty price tag that require maintenance, nor licensing fees for both vessel and trailer — not even a truck that can costs as much as a starter home to hit the waters and find big fish.

Capt. Lewis Emery of Carolina Beach said fishing isn’t wide open yet, but he’s  certainly seeing a good sample of what is to come, and he expects to see steady improvement.

Vicious Frog Freshwater lures

Vicious Frog

It seems fitting that a bait so commonly thrown from a bass boat would have a design feature common to this type of vessel. Indeed, the Vicious Frog owes its tantalizing side-to-side walking style to the “bass boat” belly that effects this bass-tempting movement.

The soft, hollow body frog also benefits from an internal weighting system, while the incredible anatomical detail and realistic colors seal the deal.

PowerPro Zero Impact Fishing line

PowerPro Zero Impact

Whether you’re punching Beavers through thick mats of grass for big bass or slinging big poppers for yellowfin, checking your line for nicks, burrs and weaknesses helps prevent breakage at the most inopportune moment.

Suffice it to say, you don’t want to find any spots of lesser strength — but that’s exactly the point for PowerPro’s new Zero Impact line.

The pace of striped bass fishing on Lake Gaston is picking up, and Don Enderle of Tri-Lakes Guide Service is trolling to find feeding fish in creeks with slightly warmer water.
