Local fishing experts Captian Dave Stewart & Captain Gary Dubiel are holding a Striped Bass (Rockfish to some of us) Seminar at the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center on the 26th of February.  This will be a Sunday full of info and tips to help you catch your share of this oh so delicious cold weather treat.  The Coastal Catchn’ Seminar is sure to be a fun day with great door prizes.  But there’s only 60 seats @ $25 each and they’re booking up fast….half are already sold!  To register, email specfever@hotmail.com

The first fishing reports of the year say that as the weather cools, the Rockfish are heading up the river chasing bait and there have been some nice trout caught up river with the Rock.

We live in a truly special area surrounded by one of the best inshore fisheries in the country.  And the fact that you can fish year round is a major bonus!
