The cold snap that ripped through North Carolina late Tuesday may have killed some plants and fruit-tree buds, but it fired up striped bass in the Roanoke River.

Many North Carolina fishermen like to target smallmouth bass, but often the lakes in the western part of the state have fish that are tough to find and even tougher to catch. If you’re looking for bronzebacks on red alert for food sources 24/7, you’d have a hard time matching, much less surpassing, two rivers in the northern Piedmont.

Croaking on the huge numbers of Pamlico by-catch Croaking on the huge numbers of Pamlico by-catch
606 Views - Posted: March 15 at 8:00 am

The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries’ stock-status report on Atlantic croaker generates more questions than answers.

It presents a “concern” listing because it says scientists can’t “precisely determine overfished stock status,” although the coast-wide assessment says croaker “are not overfished and overfishing is not occurring.”

If you’re confused, how about the poor croakers? Recreational fishing for these tasty saltwater panfish in Pamlico Sound is and has been terrible for years, unlike the Chesapeake Bay’s tributaries that offer up 10- to 14-inch fish spring through fall.

Division biologist Jason Rock acknowledged shrimp trawling on croaker grounds, mainly Pamlico Sound, is a concern, but said the agency couldn’t make a definite call about the species’ overall health because it doesn’t have enough information about the effects of bottom trawling on juvenile croakers.


Black crappie in Jordan Lake have rebounded after a 2011 die-off and should offer fishermen a great spring this year. Net survey shows Jordanís crappie on the rebound
162 Views - Posted: March 15 at 8:00 am

Biologists Jessica Baumann and Corey Oakley of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission conducted crappie surveys using trap and gill nets in October and November 2012 after a 2011 shad die-off and resulting crappie mortality.

The loss of threadfin shad in the lake stressed crappie — many of them starved — during a period of extreme heat and rising water temperatures.

The two biologists collected 2,247 crappie, with trap nets taking fish along the shoreline and gill nets collecting black crappie offshore.


Tight-lining, or fishing with lures dropped straight down, is a favorite of spring crappie anglers. Any color is good ó as long as itís blue
136 Views - Posted: March 15 at 8:00 am

Successful crappie fishing at Jordan Lake in March can hinge on having a jig in the color fish prefer that day.

Freddie Sinclair tries to match lure colors by water stain.

“The color of the jigs I use depends on the water color,” he said. “If it’s tea color, a little muddy, I like orange or darker colors like brown/chartreuse, black/chartreuse or blue/black, but every one of them needs some blue in it, even chartreuse.”
