    Hi,

    I'm new to the forum and wanted to know if anyone fishes the Tar river. I fished it a lot last year and only caught small flats and channels.

    I havent fished it any this year but have caught plenty of fish around the Greenville area before. There are some real nice channels in that area. Never caught any flats or blues bigger than 15lb though. The white perch and shad bite should start to pick up soon. Plenty of fat stripers too. We would start catching stripers around December on the Tar. Good luck

    Hey i just purchased a new boat and i live in greenville, do you have much look on cats and stripers around port terminal ramp or what is the best area. Maybe we could meet up sometime and you show me some nice areas on the tar around greenville.
