    I just wanted to let all you fellow fisherman the speckled trout have been biting pretty well up the creeks off the neuse the past couple weeks. I caught a 25 1/2' trout on my second cast this past Sunday, it was 6 lb.'s and had a 13' girth! I took it into sportsman's toy store the next day and did the paperwork for the citation. We also lost another big one at the net and caught many more 18'-20'! Pretty much all of them were caught on Berkley gulp shrimp in new penny color rigged on a jig head under a popping cork, normally tied to a 20 lb. fluorocarbon leader, with a good braid line spooled on the real around 10 lb. test. ANYONE that can cast a fishing pole can catch fish like this! And LOTS of them! So get out there and catch ya sum!! The pictures are of the same fish but I think the one on my yeti 45 shows the girth better!!

    Thanks for the comments guys. GT I didn't release that one because for the citation I had to take it to certified scales to be weighed but the next one over 24' I will release for the release citation. Good luck come turkey season hope we all get some!
