    How is it going around the state folks?

    Things have slowed down for me on Wylie both in numbers and size. I am catching about 75% of what I was both in weight and numbers from April and May.

    Just curious how it is everywhere else.

    For me the fishing has been picking up some. I have been fishing in my newly found holes and it just keeps getting better.

    Is anyone fishing the Neuse out of New Bern .I have a good friend that moved there from NJ and he is wanting to start cat fishing in a serious way.He has a great 23 ft center console and was primarily a salt water guy.I know there are some BOC sters that fish that river and he would be happy to meet up with someone that could show him the way.:big_smile:

    Jim,
    I think his 23 ft. CC would be too big for that piece of water. I think JayNC has said that the water is rarely over 2 ft. deep anywhere you go around Neuse in New Bern. Might want to check with Jay or Tammi about that area.

    Its got to be deeper than that because there are 60-90ft yachts tied up in the waterfront marina!I think he meant further upriver.

    O ok well in that case I think his 23 ft. would be ok in that stretch of river then. It probably gets deeper closer to the coast.

    Been slow for me lately, but that can change anytime. Seems like it picked up some last year mid july and in august. We will see in the morning.

    we fish all the time outta new bern.Be glad to show him were and what to use.His boat would be fine there.Fishing has slowed a little because of high water and the current is pouring but that should be slowing down soon.

    I wasn't getting anything here on Lake Gaston, until I started using slip bobbers set at 10-15ft deep. Now I'm catching Blue's like crazy, it's all about the thermocline right now, use slip bobbers!

    I went out for the first time at night in a few weeks last night and we found some big fish. Rodger Taylor and myself fished some shallows from dark til about midnight. No big numbers, but we did manage five channels in the 5-7 pound range and then two dink white cats.

    I guess if you are not going to catch a lot of fish, then catching some 5-7 pounders will make up for it.
