I was able to get away for a short fishing trip to "Down East" North Carolina hoping to catch some winter speckled trout. After I arrived I stopped by Pamlico Tackle to get some tips from Captain Dave Stewart @kneedeep. He gave me the bad news that the Spec season has been closed due to a recent fish kill from the cold. He suggested that I may be able to get into some Stripers around Aurora NC.
As usual, he was correct. Here is a nice 21 inch Striper caught from under the 33 bridge in Aurora. He was caught 15 feet from shore with a suspending twitch bait.
