Captain Ken Trail of Rock On Charters discusses his early and late summer fishing for New River musky.
The New River is such a world famous fishery. I love catching up with anglers who spend a lot of time chasing down smallmouth bass and muskie on the New. So naturally when I saw Ben Morrison with some impressive smallmouth bass on his Instagram, I knew he would have some great insight on fishing the New River. Read on to learn how Ben takes on this amazing fishery.
I love local fishing shops. Unfortunately, they are becoming more and more rare. So to find a shop that still offers great customer service and intimate local knowledge is a treasure. I have heard excellent things about Serenity Now Outfitters in Lewisburg, West Virginia. Lewisburg is located in the Southeastern part of the State right off Interstate 64 and near the George Washington and Jefferson National Forest. Their location puts them at an ideal location to stock up for fishing a number of different West Virginia and Virginia waters. Their outfitters also can provide a day to remember on their local fisheries. Craig Miller of Serenity Now Outfitters was kind enough to take some time to fill us in about what they do and how they do it so well.
Timmy Dixon is the owner of New River Outdoor Adventures in Galax, Virginia. Before interviewing business owners, I do research to make sure they represent business qualities that I want to promote to the readers of DockTalk365. So even though I was intrigued by Timmy from the impressive big New River fish on his Instagram page, I checked out reviews of his company before asking him for an interview. Reviews of New River Outdoor Adventures are terrific. And as you will see, good thing because so is this interview. New River is one of the Northeast’s finest fisheries and Timmy breaks down why and how to approach the fishing on the river.
I have never fished the New River but since doing this blog I am realizing that the New needs to be on my bucket list. This river is jam packed with smallmouth bass but also has plenty of musky as well. Adrian Parcell fishes the New River and judging by his Instagram catches plenty of bass and musky while doing so. Adrian and I discussed his New River fishing and he filled us in on some of his secrets of catching big bass and musky on the New.
