Fishing the CAPE FEAR RIVER for Late Winter BASS (Best Day of Bass Fishing in MONTHS)


After my last video where i go out on the Cape Fear to target Striped Bass, I decided to head a couple more miles up the river into some more fresh water to try and target some Largemouth Bass. I thought since we caught a bit of a break from this brutally cold winter we’ve had, the fish might be more active and willing to bite with these warmer temperatures and my predictions seemed to be correct! With my buddy Sam and I getting a late start to the day we went up the first creek arm we found off of the main river and almost immediately started catching fish! The warmer temps definitely seemed to make a difference but we also were fishing it on a falling tide which I believe was more helpful to the bite than the slightly rising temperatures were but the both of them combined made for an awesome afternoon of fishing!
