Roanoke River/Albermarle Sound

Largemouth Bass update:

The bite has definitely heated up! Depending on weather conditions and water temps the top water bite has been pretty good. I like to start using top waters at the 55 degree mark, the spring time is great time to use a Bango lure, buzz bait and even a frog. All these lure have produced some big bites throughout the day especially now that the bass are moving shallow to spawn. If your looking some cool top water action the lower Roanoke and Albermarle Sound have what your looking.

Striped Bass update:
My report on the stripers has been on the low side but the fish have finally started to show up throughout the fishery, recently had a great day of 58 fish caught in a half day trip with swim baits and light spinning tackle. The fish ranged from 15 in. To 27 in. That’s a lot of fun! Looking forward to many more great days on the water now that the Striper migration into the river has begun!
