Welcome to the site. Im from up North of you and have no working knowledge of the area in question. so i did a google search for pasquotank stripers. :oops: A direct hit brings you to us. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...=Google+Search
The North Carolina page says Striped bass never leave the area, while largemouth bass and crappie are found in nearly every creek and backwater. I know we have some local guys close to you that can help you out a bit. I hope they'll be along shortly for some first hand info.
Cool name :twisted:
