Perquimans River near Hertford, North Carolina
Striped bass are the main draw to the river in the spring and fall. During prime time the ramps crowd up fast. Try trolling shallow-running stickbaits and topwater walk-the-dog lures. The rest of the year the 4-8lbs largemouth bass are the main draw to the river. Fish for them with lures that imitate menhaden, herring and shad like stickbaits, crankbaits, spinnerbaits casted into cover, and lipless rattling crankbait.
