    That sounds like a good night Mack, I think I know where you are talking about as far as walking across the river, thats where I ran over some wood piles that someone put in the river a long time ago, I wish I could find someone to remove them, they cost me about $400.

    way off topic, but mack, I see you are from Cary, I'm from Raleigh. I'm just curious if you're catch smallmouth around here or have you been going out west for them. I didn't think there were smallmouth anywhere around here but if so, I would love to try and catch one, its been more than awhile. If there are around the triangle please let me know where I might find some.
    thanks!

    Luke

    hey luke, nearest smallies are in the dan river right in downtown danville va, not found much farther downstream than danville.....i have caught 1 as far east as the sewage treatment plant which is about 1-2 miles east of danville..........next closest place is the uwharrie river...........uwharrie was stocked(2 feeder creeks) with smallmouth in the 60's and they are doing well......i like the dan better as it is bigger water and more smallies...great blue and flatheads also.....check out american riverfishing.com/northcarolina/braggingboard ...i have plent of pics on there...thanks mack

    Went out last night on the lower Neuse. Just as it got dark we caught two good blues on eel, but nothing more after that but gar. Did anyone else go out? How did you do?
