Mid-Atlantic Fishing Report February 12, 2019

One of the hottest fisheries this time of year is Eastern North Carolina! Captain Mitchell Blake of FishIBX reports that striper fishing in the feeder rivers in the Pamlico Sound such as the Tar, Neuse, and Pamlico River are heating up. This fishery has been seeing some healthy rockfish which have started a pre-spawn run up the Roanoke and Pamlico Rivers. The best thing going in Eastern NC is a mixed bag of crappie and striper hands down! Hit up FishIBX if you want in on the action while it’s hot. In the upcoming days the annual shad migration will kick into high gear so stay tuned!
