Ditch Fishing By Jimmie Fleming One thing we have in abundance in Tyrrell County and eastern North Carolina is water. There are sounds, rivers, creeks, lakes, ponds, canals, and just plain old ditches. All these water sources have at least one thing in common: FISH! Yep, there are shell crackers, bream, crappy, perch, catfish, bass, jack pike, and many other varieties just waiting to be caught by some lucky fisherman. You don’t have to have a high powered boat or custom rods and reels to have a good time fishing and be able to bring home a nice mess of fresh fish to eat. You could use a canoe, kayak, skiff, john boat, or no boat at all. All you really need is a cane pole or light action rod & reel, some bait, a bucket or stringer, and a fishing license (if required in your area). Bait is very important and can be an adventure in itself. The best bait is natural critters such as earthworms, night crawlers, crickets, grasshoppers, minnows, frogs, or grubs. If you have ever gotten these baits on your own and not purchased them in a store then you know what I mean when I say getting bait can be an adventure. Just imagine a warm sunny day on the bank of a shady ditch or feet dangling off the edge of a dock or pier. Watching your cork bob and listening to the birds sing while you catch a mess of bream, might be the therapy that folks need in these stressful times. The opportunity to get outside in the fresh air and enjoy the beauty of nature while catching your self a meal … what a great experience. And, don’t forget to take along a kid once in a while to pass along the knowledge and fun of “ditch fishing”. Jimmy Fleming ... 807 Green Street ... Columbia, NC 27925 ...
