Cape Fear River striped bass fishing on December 10, 2019, was exceptional only fished a couple of hours of the falling tide. First stop, no hits,2nd stop was great catching 5 stripers myself, with one of the other anglers catching fish just a fast as I was! Pulled anchor moved down the bank to find stripers and speckled trout to be mixed and biting, hooking fish about every 3rd cast. Pulled anchor again moving down the shoreline short distance landing stripers and speckled trout again, fish were two to three-pound size.
Baits used redhead white body mirror lures and Rapala X Rap, slow retrieve.
