Fished the Cape Fear Friday with a couple of friends. I managed 3 stripers and small redfish. My biggest striper was 25inches. My buddy Jeff caught 2 stripers and my buddy Kaleb caught a red that went 25inches. Not to bad of a day.
Nice pic. purdy fish. Looks like a nice day. - glenn
What kind of bait you fishing and how are you fishing it???
Nice catch. I got your message to late to go. I talked to Kaleb last night and he said you guys had fun...looks like it! Did you catch those at the mouth where we tried last time? I may have some time this week to go, if you are able let me know.
Just guessing but I would say from the background, Kure Beach is just behind you and to the left and Ft Fisher is to your right.
Nice fish man, looks like i have to give that a shot when i get back in town. Thanks for the report.
Got out again yesterday with Norm in the wind and caught 2 more. Both small both on the swim shad.
Stupid question her. If your catching stripers down there, why aren't many showing up at Hatty?
Resident fish would be my guess.
THose stripers are stocked yearly. They are actaully a hybrid. Everyonce and while a big one is caught, its a cape fear river strain. The lock and dams are the problem as to why the fish cant migrate back up to spawn.
The state wants to make them so fish can get around them since the locls arent used to much anymore. There will be ocean fish caught every once and a while at the jetties late February and march....Sometimes...When the water gets cold....It's 56 here now and warming.
Thanks Ryan. Now I look closer at the pic, I can see the broken stipes.
