    Where on the Neuse are you fishing, I havent been there in a couple months. I am fairly new to the area and have only had luck in one spot (off 301 in Smithfield). Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    brother we fish from smithfield all the way to new bern and there is great fishing anywhere on that river if we can keep the limb liners from destroying her

    Thats one of the best things about fishing above Smithfield.
    No limb lines, no motor boats, and some great fishing.:big_smile:

    went last sat.nite had one break off and nothing else on my boat did see one 56# flattie, think the cold front may have shut them down,if you go let us know how you do
