Happy New Year!! With everyone starting to act on their new year’s resolutions and it being the middle of winter, it is hard to stay positive. At least that’s how it is for me. I call it the winter time lulls. The thought of spring being around the corner keeps my chin up. The good news is that our winter weather pattern provides us opportunities for us to still get on the water and have productive days. Striper’s seem to be the targeted species recently and anglers are having some success. The stripers of the upper Cape Fear River are becoming a popular fishery, but don’t be fooled they are still a tricky fish and will leave you frustrated at times. The majority of these fish are in the 6-12 pound class, but will certainly bend the rod, so hold on. The redfish are still cooperating in the lower Cape Fear, as well as some speckled trout. Don’t let the cold and rain keep you in. Pick your days and get out there, stay motivated, and best of all catch fish!!! Good luck and be safe.
