Well, I'm stumped. Apparently the fish aren't anywhere around Castle Hayne or Wilmington at least. We covered some pretty water too, and didn't mark the first fish. Not even bowfin! But we have caught a few fish up around Burgaw on the NE Cape Fear before, so I'm assuming that the fish move up in the river during winter months? I'm trying to get my first blue cat. I catch flats and channels all summer long, no problem, but never a blue. I've SEEN them caught, some nice ones too, so I know they cover this water. Where are they at???
