  • Thu, 14 Dec 2017 12:00:59 +0000: Guide Time – Neuse River Classroom - Fisherman's Post
    For most inshore anglers, the winter months mean one of two things—trout or striper—so once Capt. Gary Dubiel, of Spec Fever Guide Service, and I had confirmed a 7:00 am meeting at the Lawson’s Creek Boat Ramp for a half day of New Bern-area fishing, my next text to him was, “Trout or striper?” “Both […]

    Though Capt. Thomas Wood, of Dancin’ Outlaw Charters out of the Morehead City waterfront, would rather this Tidelines focus on the wahoo, blackfins, and mahi we picked up on the troll during our annual fall/winter trip with him and his Mate Michael Tickle, my attention keeps going back to the hot triggerfish bite that started […]
