Neuse River Fishing Report

Tim Ellis joined me for a fishing trip. Tim is the head of the spotted seatrout tagging program and a PhD grad student at NC State. We’ve been working together for a while on his tagging program.

We had plenty of wind today (June 3, 2012), but we worked hard and got just enough cooperation to land a nice pile of fish, tagging 18 and releasing a handful more.  We missed and lost a number of fish as well…did I mention it was WINDY!  It was great to have Tim on the boat!

Spotted seatrout are one of the most popular sports fish in the South East and programs like Tim’s will not only help NC manage of fish stocks but prove great information to anglers the visit our many coastal waters.

The Neuse River is experiencing some exceptional seatrout fishing this summer and anglers should be heading to the NC Coast for some fine angling! We’re also catching red and black drum, flounder, gray trout, striped bass and bluefish.

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
