Rockfish are at weldon
Drove down Saturday night went to RR Lake and caught some bait.
After reading the Roanoke River Report on the NC Wildlife website Thursday I took gear for Rockfish and Shad.
Got up Sunday morning and hit the Roanoke River around 8:00. Felt confident we wouldn't need the Shad rods so left them in the truck. Fished until 2:30. Had 2 Roanoke River green horns with me but they picked up the drifting thing after a couple passes.
Managed 46 with 4 in the release slot. Largest was 25 1/2". For the most part the rest were keepers with a few under 18" mixed in.
Was a very nice day on the water and boat traffic was low.
If you've never been down to the Roanoke for the spring Stripers you should give it a try.
And for all that may be interested, don't forget the Boy & Girls Club Tourney on the 24th.
