I would like to know where the best fishing areas are. When I find that , then I will search those areas for a house. I understand most rivers are shallow water. I'm looking into White Oak River , Newport River , North River and Trent River. I will fish quite often. Anyone with expertise in this area?

My experience is with striped bass, blue fish, flounder, fluke cod and tautog. I also caught many and released them back into the water. I also like to eat what I catch, so I don't really care what kind as long as it can be eaten.

Steelman,
The rivers you mentioned cover Onslow, Carteret, Craven Counties. That's a varied and diverse area which offer like kind fishing opportunities. A little more detail as to what you are targeting would be helpful.
In addition-It all depends where on the rivers you are as to water depth, water salinity and such which of course affects the type of fish present. And don't forget other rivers like the Neuse River, Core Creek, etc.
In some of the waters you can catch fresh water fish like small mouth bass, in others striped bass while in others tarpon and in others world class drum. Flounder and speckled trout are common to just about all.
It all depends when and where.

I feel the closer you are to salt water the better the water conditions...Its just my opinion, but I would eat just aout anything out of the ICW or the mouths of the creeks and rivers that drain into...I'm picky where I fish..and what I eat. There is a ton of places to fish, and ACCESS to it makes the difference. Public boat ramps are a blessing, but give me a private one anyday...and I only pay $50 a year for that access...
