    Does anyone know of any bait and tackle shops in or around the Elizabeth City or Fayetteville area that sells live baits such as Crawfish or Eels? Also, I have read some of ya'll refering to fishing with Goldfish, are these really Goldfish or a gold colored minnow? I would appreciate any and all advice on this please. Thank you in advance.

    aint from your area, but as for goldfish, check your local fishing regulations to see if it is legal in your state. I know in florida, it is not legal to use goldfish, and there are some other dumb rules too, but they are just plain old pet store goldfish. I usually bought the larger ones with the big bushy tails when I lived in Kentucky and then clip off a little bit of the tail. The more comotion they make in the water the better.lol

    Gold fish are a great baits in the Spring thru early Fall season for cats. I used them off and on and have caught blues in the 30 to 40 pound range. I do not use the large ones, but those less than four inches long. Some fishermen I know of use the large ones at night for large flatheads. I hope this helps you out. Mac

    A few bait shops around here, not many, sell goldfish. but they are basically small carp, they look different than "pet store" goldfish.
    good luck

    Most bait houses only have gold fish in the spring thru early fall fishing season. That is what my bait man told me.

    Sorry Billy, as of right now I do not know of anyone who has an outboard motor for sale, but I really haven't been looking for one ethier. But I will start keeping my eyes open for one and if I have any luck in this area I will let you know. As for meeting on the Cape Fear and doing a little Catfishing, I am all for that! I am just waiting on the weather to co-operate just a little and then.........I'll be there! LOL! Thanks again my friend!:cool2:
