Freshwater Fishing on the Outer Banks

April 28, 2013

I took a quick trip to North River to see if the light tackle fishing had started to heat up.  While the cooler weather this spring it seems everything in the fishing world is behind several weeks.  Well finally the sunfish and perch have started to eat up for the spawn.  The water temp started at 62 degrees and I saw white perch school from the start.  This has become my one of my favorite types of fishing.  Largemouth is my first fishing love, but light tackle is coming up fast.  You can catch fish steady, some days fast, and you never know what is on the other end of the line.  Today I caught over 30 fish and 6 different species in just a couple hours.  The different species were bass, bluegill, pumpkinseed, white perch, yellow perch, and warmouth.  It's a fun trip!!!!

A nice bluegill.

Lots of white perch.

And one of my favorite....the warmouth!
