A geological, ecological, historical, wonderland !!

Another safe and enjoyable trip on the historical Roanoke River.

Low water and a north east wind kept the mouth of Sweet Water Creek from living up to its notorious good reputation, but the fishing was fun just the same. Brother claimed the biggest and the most, but Sissy got the award for good sportsmanship. These kids were a delight to be with.

This Granddad, Father, Brother and Sister, recently enjoyed a morning of site seeing and fishing on the Roanoke.

   I have a great idea!!  Let's go fishing!!

This 12-14 oz Robin Perch would have made any angler happy, and especially one that he just lost a 3-4 lbs. bowfin,,,,right at the side of the boat !!  :(

There is great fishing to be done on the lower Roanoke River and its adjoining waters.

Fishing starts in early spring with the striper season (March-April).

A little later (late May, as the water warms) it's time to start fishing for bream, blue gill, robin perch, flutter perch, catfish, and bass.

When summer arrives, it is time to get out the fly rod and try your luck at and old eastern North Carolina tradition; fly fishing for pan fish. Nothing can be more exciting than to see a panfish roll at a bream bug near a lily pad!

When fall rolls around, its time to troll or jig for crappie. 

Call or email me for a quote on a "laid back" half day or full day guided fishing trip, in a North Carolina Classic "1961 Simmons River Skiff.You can bet it will be an experience you will long remember.

It's mid-winter 2018. This young man and the Captain are out looking for Crappie.  What a great January morning !!
