Outer Banks Bass Fishing

April 9, 2013

We decided to hit two rivers for our fishing trip today.  We started on the Yeopim River (pictured below) and finish up on the Little River. 

The day started out a little slow.  The water temp has risen suddenly to 63 degrees to start the morning.  The fish have certainly started to make a move to the bank.  The crankbait bite has slowed a bit and the soft plastics seem to be the desired meal of the day.

Around lunch time we hit a bank that had produced in the past and Eric started catching some nice pre-spawn fish.

About 1 pm we decided to make the move to Little River.  Little River is a river off the Albermarle Sound near Elizabeth City about an hour from the Outer Banks. 

With the water temp near 70 degrees because of the hot afternoon sun we decided to hit a spot I knew should have spawners moving up fast.  We found fish in short order.



We were not the only fishermen catching fish.  This osprey had a good meal for supper.
