First trip of the year, and the target fish was yellow perch. These colorful hard hitting fish school up in North River in February. Take a look at the colors:
The cold morning started out with 44 degree water temps and a steady breeze out of the north. We had a good day catching yellow perch, stripers, and bass. Most were small but all were fun after the days spent inside the house for the past weeks.
We caught several small stripers like the one pictured. These fish love cold water and fight hard all the way to the boat.
Eric caught most of the yellow perch and reminded me of the fact all day! All that fish catching still didn't keep him warm.
We still managed to catch a few bass during the day and enjoyed the day in spite of the wind and cold temperatures.

Welcome to Backwater Adventures!! Our goal is to make sure you have a fun day of catching fish in a place that you had no idea was close to the Outer Banks. From largemouth bass to catching anything that bites light tackle, we have an adventure just for you. Look at our website at www.backwateradventures.com and you can read all about our adventures from bass fishing, ultra-light fishing, or freshwater fly fishing.
North River in Currituck County will be the site of most adventures. Hidden from the busy beach, this secluded tannic river is full of fish and wildlife, but far from people, houses, and stress!!!
You can catch up to 10 different freshwater fish like bass, bream, warmouth, shell crackers, bowfin, crappie, white perch (pictured above), yellow perch, and more....
Since we are so close to the ocean, many saltwater fish roam the brackish water of North River. You can also catch sheephead (pictured above) or red drum (pictured below) and other different young saltwater fish.
