    Think I will Striper fish tomorrow so I can try the Neuse again Friday night....... When I look at the map (Google Earth) and compare it to the directions to the ramps mentioned in the earlier thread (Whitetail and Ferry Bridge), I see two other ramps that may be different but may be the same. If I head out of Smithfield on Brogden (SR-1007) I eventually get to Richardsons Bridge (right off of 1007 onto 1201) and if I go a little farther I get to Cox's Ferry (right off of 1007 onto 1224).

    In what order do the ramps line up down river from Smithfield and them, where does the water get deeper, or does it?

    1. Jug
    2. Lumber Yard
    3.?
    4.?
    5.?
    6.?

    In any case, we are going to take the Jon Boat again just to make sure we don't get stuck anywhere.

    well, the ones i know of are:
    jug,
    breadbox/lumberyard,
    richardson bridge,
    ferry bridge,
    whitetail,
    wildlife ramp on 581 off of 111

    in that order. i am not familiar with a cox ramp, maybe someone else is. there are a lot of private ramps in between. the river really doesnt get a lot deeper until whitetail landing. and then only a small amount. i usually get around really good by the 581 ramp. to get there, go down 111 out of goldsboro(next right past wilburs bbq if you are going east) and go down to 581 and take a right. boat ramp is about a mile or so.

    ponykilr is right on the ramp order......i will say this about the ramps........i hate richardson bridge......it sometimes right at the ramp is sooooo shallowwwwwwww.........but i will say that if a man has the right boat......like the 1's used on the dan river(small jons with jet drives) he could kill em above richardson bridge...run about 5- 10 miles up.......mack..

    Mack have you been downriver of kinston lately, if so how have you done. I havent caught a thing there in the last 2 times. The last 2 times have been coming upriver from new bern about 5-8 miles but still you would think there would be fish there.

    Hey Mack,

    How long does it take to get there from here? Tryin to decide where to go on the Neuse tomorrow night. Got a bunch of big shad at Jordan today. No Stripers but a ton of decent Channels. Like to try an area with more water.

    Cant come laugh at your boat anytime soon, just kidding. I am in California right now doing some training. I wont be back till like the 25th or so, then we have the Gathering, so I guess the neuse will be on the back burner for another month or so, maybe the water will cool off soon so they will start biting.
