We go fishing a couple of times a year in the brackish water of the Albemarle Sound. Those little inland creeks are wonderful places for catching drum, bream and butterfish. If we get out into the Sound, we catch a lot of croakers. Up along the banks, we get bass when we're lucky. Are there any other NC fishing lovers here? We use shrimp, sand fleas and assorted artificial baits along with croaker rigs when we're after croaker.
I don't know if a lot of inland fisherman are familiar with Croakers. I have never fished for them myself, but I read up on them and it looks like fun. I am actually relocating to North Carolina in a year or so. I can't wait to have a bunch of new fishing spots and to go after new species of fish. Thanks for posting!
I've never fished down south so pardon me if this is a dumb question to you. How on earth do you fish with sand fleas? I have never heard of that in my whole life. I've used large insects like grasshoppers but not fleas. Or is this a euphemism for tackle I haven't heard before?
Sand fleas are great. They are about the size of the tip of your little finger. To catch them, we put out table scraps such as old corn cobs on the sandy beach in front of our cottage. Early the next morning we'd go out and dig just beneath the sand and we'd find the fleas. They look a little like miniature shrimp or even baby grasshoppers, but they are much more plentiful than trying to catch grasshoppers.
