Their proper name is "Striped Bass", but in North Carolina
will more often hear them called "Rockfish" or just "Rock". No matter
what you call them, they are just plain fun to catch on light tackle.
There is a tremendous population of rockfish in the sounds of Eastern
North Carolina and they can be caught there in any month of the year,
but I want to tell you about a special time and place that has fishing
so spectacular that you will hardly believe it.
Although I will guide you with any type of
light tackle, fly tackle is my personal favorite. I know of no other place in
the fishing world where you are as likely to catch as many fish in a day of fly
casting as you are in the Roanoke. If you have never fly fished, I will try to
teach you. If you can cast, but have only fished for panfish, this is the
place to broaden your experience. If you are an experienced fly
fisherman,you will have a ball. Some mornings and late afternoons, the topwater
action can be furious and when the sun hits the water, the sinking lines and
clousers generally keep right on producing.
If you have Adobe Acrobat Software, you can view a guide for Roanoke striper fishing.
If you are interested in some great fall and winter rock
These same great schools of fish which spawn in the Roanoke
drop back to the coastal sounds for the remainder of the year and I schedule some trips for them in the fall and winter. On a November trip, I had the pleasure of guiding Captain Jack West for 3 days of striper fishing on Croatan Sound. We boated a total of 84 fish, mostly on flyrods, and had some nice ones.
That's Cap'n Jack with the big grin and big fish!. For more information, contact: E-mail:firstname.lastname@example.org
