Ben Huffines and Robert Dove came to town or a striper trip on the Roanoke. This is close to 10 years in a row or these two guys from Burlington North Carolina. This one made up for some bad ones as we close down on 100 fish and caught some really nice big ones. Thanks Ben and Robert for the loyalty over the years. Had a blast fishing with you guys!

Chris Freeman, Will Neal, and Aaron McNeill showed up at the Weldon ramp on the Roanoke River this morning with one thought in mind....”Give ‘em the business”. Eight keepers and well over 50 fish later, a broken rod, empty bait tank, lots of sore mouth fish from the best hook setters I have had in the boat in years.... so they did what they set out to do...They gave ‘em the business for sure!

Jim Lowe brought friends Robert and Dennis for a Roanoke trip on Monday. They had just returned from a trip I set up for them in Venice, Louisiana, so I had big shoes to fill. They brought home 91 pounds of trout fillets from that trip. We got our share on Monday morning with over 50 fish and four or five in the 25 inch range. Jim and his crowd are always absolutely the best. See you in a couple weeks for a return match, Jim.

My brother Norman brought friends Buddy Wilkins and James Buie to striper fish on the Roanoke yesterday. One long drift and over 50 fish later, plus some great brownies from my sister in law Carolyn, we called it quits. It’s like the good old days, and really quality size fish in addition to the big numbers.

Andrew Meadwell , Robert Baldwin, and Juan Galvez kept the strong bite alive today despite a big jump in water level to 13,500cfs. Levels are supposed to remain consistent throughout the weekend so fishing should be “off the hook”. Call 336 240-5649 to book your trip. It’s like the good old days on the river already.

Got the season on the Roanoke started out right with Dane Smith and his son. Double digits on stripers and Hickory Shad with a couple of fun fellas who were really good fisherman. Thanks for starting my year out right.

Let Capt. Ponytail take you on a fishing adventure of a lifetime. You'll fish the Roanoke River for Striped Bass or the backwaters of Winyah Bay and North Inlet for Red Drum, Trout, Floounder, Tarpon and Shark.
