The Neuse in November
A friend who knows the Neuse like no other invited me to go fishing this weekend. The weather looked to be great and after warming ourselves with some coffee we hit the water. The conditions were my kind of fishing. The sun had warmed up the air the water was low and clear. Perfect for wading.My friend had talked about using a new retrieve for bass. When he showed it to me I realized the way I fish for largemouth might be totally wrong. I had been using his so called new retrieve all year for bass. It was hit or miss. It was the same type of retrieve I use for striped bass.

Great post, what do think was the water temp when you left the river? This time of year the fish seem to bump into the fly as oppose to banging it in the spring and summer. There is a lot more patience involved now with the streamers because the fish are picky in their feeding habits, and sometimes will only hit a sure meal, that being something slow and easy to inhale. Did you use anything besides the bugger? Great shots of the waters you were fishing.
@ Bill, The water was probably in the mid to high 50's. The blue gill were definitely moving but not far from cover. I think in low water they feel there is more chance of a predator getting them. There are a ton of heron around here.ReplyDelete
