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.
***SATURDAY APRIL 20TH*** My brother Norman brought Buddy Wilkins and James Buie from Fayetteville and kept our hot streak alive with a legitimate fifty fish day on a five hour drift from Troublefield to the power lines without ever cranking the big motor. We survived high winds and some heavy rains yesterday but levels are only increasing 2000cfs to 15000cfs, so it should be an awesome weekend to come fishing on the Roanoke. Plenty of bait available too... get your blue backs at the normal spot near the Weldon ramp exit. Give us a call to book your Roanoke trip.... getting booked up fast, so call 336 240-5649 for your perfect day. Water temp is bumping 60 degrees and steady flow at 15000cfs with almost half my catch keeper and slot fish. Also booking Costa Rica... still some dates available on the "Dragin Fly" out of Los Suenos for 2019 and beyond...

I've been lucky enough to work side by side on the water at the Roanoke River for the past ten years with N.C. Wildlife Resources Biologists like Chad Thomas and Kevin Dockendorf.

We have produced several videos and TV shows over the years on the great fishing on the Roanoke. The rebirth of the Roanoke River and the annual spring striper spawning run that happens there is entirely due to the hard work of Chad, Kevin and an entire generation of new biologists that have followed.

This year we all decided to pick it up a notch and branch out, showing you N.C. Wildlife Resources projects that are making a real difference statewide. Enjoy the Roanoke and Cape Fear videos on this page, and please stay tuned for more.... our plan is to shoot and produce thirteen episodes this year.

So keep watching for more great success stories from the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission.
