I went out in the sound and got a dozen or so about a week ago. It has been hit and miss from what I've heard. Some days they hammer them and other days it's pretty quiet. We fished at the big bridge and at the mouth of Salmon Creek up near the river bridge.

Thanks for the update. Is schrimp the bait of choice or would it be beetle spins?

We were using both. Either seemed to work when we located the fish.

We always do pretty good up the Chowan around channel marker #9. You really need to find them on your sounder first. Just drifting for them will be hit and miss. We always start out by cruising around for about 30 minutes or so looking for the best fish. After we find a good school on the bottom we set the anchor so we can drift back on the school. Our bait of choice is either small pieces of night crawlers or KastMaster spoons...Mark

Thanks Mark. I just got a call and we are going to give it a try tomorrow (Sat) morning. We'll check out the number 9 if we can't dig any up in the bay.

Capt Fred,
When you get to #9 go to the north side of the river there is a long sand bar that runs parallel to the shore line. You can see arrowhead beach from where I normally fish. It goes from 20 to 15ft back to 20+ feet they often stack up on top of the bar. We trolled for stripers on the deep side of #9 a few weeks ago and released 20 or so nice stripers!! 16"-22" Good luck

Well, it was real quiet from the big bridge across the sound all the way up to a mile or so past the #9 marker in the Chowan River. That's one big stretch of water! We ended up with 6 or 8 perch and threw back 4 or 5. Bumped into several other boats and nobody else had found them either.

We fished deep, shallow, east, west, north, and south. Must have dropped baits in 40 different spots. We did manage to catch two nice crab pots. One of which required me to show off my swimming skills to untangle it.

Beautiful day on the water though. Felt like October.

Default White Perch near Edenton

Caught 20 near the Chowan river Bridge. They seem to bite if you had your bait at least 2 foot off the bottom. Using shrimp and Squid. My son caught a 3ft gar which was fun for him. Also got checked by coast guard. They were checking everyone.

Sure would like to get into them when they are really biting.

Keep us posted.
