Spec Fever Guide Service offers Neuse River fishing charters originating from both Oriental and New Bern, NC. We fish year round on this remote and beautiful estuary carrying both fly fishing and light tackle anglers. Striped bass, redfish and spotted seatrout are our mainstays, but we also target crappie, white and yellow perch, largemouth bass, flounder, bluefish, gray trout, catfish, pickerel, hickory and American shad and it is rare to catch just one or two species. Tese trips are great for families, novice and experienced alnglers
The river is unique: no lunar tide, the widest American river, a mix of fresh and saltwater fish.
Join us for a great day of fishing!
