Enjoy a day fishing on the river!

SpecFever Guide Service

It’s that time of year to enjoy a day on the river! So we asked our friend, Captain Gary Dubiel of SpecFever Fishing Guide Service, to tell us about the best places to catch fish in Eastern NC in the summer. Listen to the radio interview aired on New Bern News Talk Radio WNOS 97.1FM and 1450AM. The interview is published on NBN’s Libsyn page: www.newbernnow.libsyn.com:

You can find terrific summertime fishing in the greater New Bern area or take a 35 – 40 minute drive down the road to Oriental in Pamlico County!

Captain Gary told us about the really nice selection of fish, “I do a lot of my fishing out of the Oriental area, but New Bern has some fish”. Striped bass will be biting on topwater baits. There will be flounder and speckled trout along with a stray tarpon.

Gary finds fishing in Oriental to be better in the summer as there’s lots more speckled trout, puppy drum, flounder, and the long awaited adult red drum. You can catch red drum as big as 40 – 60 inches. People come from around the world to catch these giants!

If you are a leisure angler and/or want to take a kid fishing for the day, Captain Gary recommends the Neuse River out of Oriental. There’s lots of action with Spanish mackerel, bluefish, flounder, puppy drum, and speckled trout.

If you’re seeking a fun and relaxing day on the water or if you’re a serious fisherman, Captain Gary is your “Go to Man”!
