Kristi and I headed to Weldon, North Carolina to fish the Roanoke River Striper Run. These striped bass – or Rockfish – as some call them – range from 1 to 30+ pounds. If you ever get a chance please take our word for it – go to the Roanoke River in North Carolina and fish the spring striper run from April to June. We found out why they call Weldon, North Carolina the Rockfish Capital of the World
