you are better off fishing right here in the Perquimans river. fish around the S shape bridge and the by-pass bridge. head out towards the mouth of the river and fish around piers and duck blinds along the way. Harvey point base is a good place to try. use rattle traps or red fins. if your boat is big enough try the sound bridge and targets in the sound. good luck.

The targets are just out of the mouth of the perquimans river in the sound. Come out of the mouth and look 2oclock and you will see them

that is the target and there is one two the left of that, most of it has fallen in. there are two more targets in that area which I haven't found yet (underwater) but there are two across the sound that's underwater that I have found and I always catch one between both of them. there is also a sunken barge on the other side. 5 of us went offshore today and limited out on sea bass, also caught blues, flounder and trigger fish. sea bass for dinner tomorrow night.

i guess i need to go with a larger assortment of lures, or try to get some live bait.

which reminds me, where can you buy minnows around here?

I haven't bought minnows in years but I use to get them form Larry's just across the s shape bridge going out of Hertford. don't think you will do much with them on Rock. I have bought some hard shell crab and cut it in half or quarters and the rock love it. Ells are good to use at the sound bridge. I got my ells from the beach when I used them. you can also go to Virginia and get them. most of the time I just use artificial baits around here.

I'm not much for touching eels.

When you quarter the crab, what's the best way to hook them? And any crab? Or do the rock favor a particular type?

any hard shell crab will do, just cut the legs off close to the body and run your hook through the leg and out of the body. you will also catch a lot of catfish when using crab.

if your out at the targets put the bait between 10ft to 20ft. in the river your just going to see how deep the water is where your fishing, just keep it of the bottom. also you might want to invest in a electric filet knife, it will filet a catfish in seconds. cuts right through the skin. first filet the fish with the skin on and once you have the filet in hand you can take the electric knife and filet the skin off. worth the money, about 40 bucks.

Sounds a lot better then what a girlfriend taught me(hey, I leanered to fish in the tropics, we didn't have catfish). She used pliers a nail and a tree. Quite a grusome affair.

that's the way we did it back in the 70s. I use this knife for all my fish, salt or fresh water.
