fished wedneday had hada28" and a 31" then thursday had a 2 man limit in a hour bigest 33.5"
then today had 4 between 23"-28" all fish on clams. anyone catchin in the inlet? cant buy a bite there, all fish along the sods
Have'nt fished the inlet but south side of the bay has been good. Last trip had only one keeper and some blues on clam though. Sounds like you managed to avoid the choppers were you anchored or drifting? When you say sod banks I'm thinking north side of the bay maybe near the old factory am I in the general area? Last week was awesome with all nice sized Bass and some Drum all fish being taken on the hook with chumming and baiting with clam. Inlet should be good any time now with eels if you don't mind fishing in the witching hours or before the rooster crows. I love Great Bay!
Crojo if your'e responding to Nacote Man I fish from a 17ft. center console Key West with a 90hp. Evinrude Ocean Pro. I was a little cautious about returning to the south side of the bay tommorow and fishing that famous channel near the inlet because I ran into some blues there on Thursday and I know it's just a matter of time before the dogfish move in there if they haven't already. But I guess the only way to know is to try it. I was kind of curious about fishing some sod banks on the other side of the bay tommorow maybe in the area of the fish factory. I know this is a good location for stripers, but haven't really pinpointed an exact spot. Without getting too exact do you have an opinion on this area for chumming with clam, was also thinking about drifting some eel in the inlet early morning on the top of the incoming tide.

what's up Brett, good to hear your catching already. We have had awesome action here on the reds, trout to 10# and Albies blitzing in schools off the beach. Still not Tuckerton fishing though.I really miss it and Krista is convincing me to come home. Have you tried the poppers? do they work, action wise? I have a few spooks as well that have had hits on but no hook ups. If nothing else throw them at the blues.
all fish caught on the hook chummin, and the fish factorys real close. havent had any run ins with the yeller eyes yet! yo jess u need to get up here the fishins getin hot, havent had a chance to throw them poppers yet might save them for the fall, too nice to throw at the yeller eyes! and i hear theres some monster drum around but havent had one yet prolly try this weeken,
We get bass but nothing to write home about. Mostly in the river and a bunch up in roanoke rapids. I am really jones'n to get out in Greatbay and do some damage. I don't think I will be coming up anytime soon, not until Xmas. Keep me posted on the fishing.
