Winter fishing on the Neuse and Trent Rivers near New Bern has been excellent. Stripers have been plentiful and are mixed with specks, reds and flounder. Soft plastics have worked well during periods of more sun while top water has been dynamite at low light. The numbers have been impressive! Look for the action to continue right through the winter and early sprinng.
