Editor’s note: The hunt detailed below happened because moderators Diane00 and Gobblintom (aka Joey Murphy) have developed a friendship with user Donion (aka Don Wilson) through the NorthCarolinaSportsman.com forum.

Lake Norman anglers are catching striped bass mixed with spotted bass and suspended in deep water. Spots, stripers warm up Lake Norman December fishing

Spotted bass and stripers are the main targets at Lake Norman this month for guide Craig Price of Denver.

“I’m primarily fishing for spotted bass and finding most of them at the mouth of creeks such as Mountain and Davidson creeks,” said Price, who said the junction of the creek and river channels are particular productive areas.

Fishermen targeting speckled trout inshore from Wilmington to Topsail have had plenty of success. Inshore fishing continued to be excellent around Wilmington

The varied action that has made this fall such a great time to fish along the Cape Fear coast continues even as cooler weather moves in. Speckled trout, red drum and flounder are biting in most inshore waters, and they are joined by stripers in the rivers around downtown Wilmington.

“This really has been an exceptional fall,” said Tex Grissom of Tex’s Tackle in Wilmington. “After the mild winter last year, we were expecting a good trout bite, but I don’t think anyone thought it would be as good as it has been. Redfish are still biting, too, and they add a little bit of fight to the finesse. When you throw in some late flounder, stripers and black drum, it creates a lot of opportunities. Only people who aren’t fishing aren’t catching this fall.”

The Neuse River from New Bern to the mouth of Pamlico Sound has got to be the most diversified fishing region in the United States, maybe the world.

Where else in a single river can anglers during the summer land spotted sea trout, flounder, puppy drum, “old” red drum, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, gray trout and, yes, tarpon.

Fishing from Southport to Wilmington has ignited because of earlier-than-expected warm weather.

Weldon dubs itself “The Rockfish Capitol of the World” and there’s little dispute about that claim. Striper fishing still active at Weldon

It may be late in the season for striped bass spawning runs at the Roanoke River near Weldon, but anglers continue to have tremendous catch-and-release days.

Some erstwhile saltwater guides remain in the area to offer uninitiated “rockfish” chasers a boat and the knowledge to avoid the river’s large stone impediments and make a trip productive, safe and less expensive (lower units add up after a while).

Jeff Thomas displays 9- and 11-pound largemouths he caught this spring. Harris Lake bass jumping on lures

If bass anglers want a good chance to catch a lunker largemouth, the best place to go right now is Shearon Harris Lake in southern Wake and northern Chatham counties.

“There’s a good bite at Harris,” said Jeff Thomas of Broadway, a guide and tournament angler. “They’re biting just about everywhere — shallow and deep.”

Three years ago Hatteras (chopper) bluefish once again began appearing at North Carolina central coast venues.

Thirty years ago these large toothy creatures made dependable October and November appearances at the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, most prominently at Ocracoke Island. Anglers would catch them by the truckloads, wastefully stacking them like cordwood on the Ocracoke beaches (they’re not very tasty but fight like a shark). And they’d hit any kind of lure from Hopkins to, famously, a strip of flannel shirt impaled on a J-hook.

This pleased angler landed a beautiful Atlantic bonito during April off Onslow Beach. Anglers must have true grit for bonito

SNEADS FERRY – One of the most elusive but hardest-fighting/best-tasting saltwater gamefish is available right now off the N.C. coast.

But bonito (not bonita) are almost like ghosts because anglers can neither predict with much dependability the exact nor proximate locations where they'll appear in the ocean. And they are a totally ocean-going species. One thing is certain: when they appear, the ocean explodes boils and roils as they savagely attack glass minnows and baby menhaden and just about any lure an angler can cast to them.

Late-night TV show host Conan O'Brien got duck-calling lessons from one of the best Tuesday night — Duck Commander's Phil Robertson.

And he did OK. Or maybe not.

Depends on who you ask.

The spring spawning run of striped bass is occurring now in N.C. rivers and many anglers are taking advantage. Yadkin lakes see start of striped-bass spawn

With late spring-like weather spreading over the state a month earlier than usual during March, higher-than-normal water temperatures apparently triggered striped bass false migration runs in many piedmont rivers.

The migration attempts are false because stripers have only two rivers (Dan and Roanoke) inside North Carolina long enough to successfully hatch fertilized eggs — yet rockfish are hard-wired to make whoopee anyway each spring no matter where they are.

Anglers fishing with Richard Andrews, a guide from Little Washington, are experiencing great topwater striped bass action at the Pamlico River. Hot striper bite ignites up and down Pamlico

Although many Tar Heel anglers believe the Roanoke River is the state’s top spring spot for catching striped bass, the best venue actually may be up and down the Pamlico River on either side of Little Washington — but particularly to the east toward Albemarle Sound.
