Colt Bass Fishing

I practice catch and release. On all Striped Bass rips I strictly enforce a 3 fish per trip limit. No Striped Bass over 12 pounds will be kept. If a trophy fish is caught, multiple pictures and measurements will be taken. I can send you to my taxidermist who can make you a fiberglass replica that will look better and last longer than a skin mount. Plus your fish gets to live to grow. "We as fisherman have to take care of what resources the state of North Carolina gives us. They'll never get to be 20 pounds if we keep them a 10 pounds."
