The water here on the Crystal Coast has lived up to it's name, it's been super clear, crystal blue and absolutely beautiful When the water is clear, it makes for fun and awesome fishing. When the weather and the water cooperate like this, we love heading out the inlet and fishing off of Atlantic Beach and near Cape Lookout.  Read More

Old Drum & Popping Corks

Captain Chris Kimrey - Friday, August 24, 2018

It's old drum season! A lot of our charters lately have been in search of big ole drum in the Neuse River! This time of year, drum of all sizes can be caught depending on the time of day you're out fishing. Early morning and late evening fishing in the Neuse River and near the town of Oriental typically lead us to find the really large old drum. We've had some great luck in the mornings using popping corks! Fishing with popping corks means never a dull moment. Popping corks draw attention to the bait with a clicking sound that is similar to that of shrimp, crabs or baitfish. When the cork is jerked by the rod, the bait "jumps" from the bottom and reflects the movement of fleeing bait. This is a great method to use in the Neuse River where the waters can get a bit rough and cloudy.  Read More
