When many species that North Carolina fishermen target go dormant during the winter, it's great to have blue catfish in many of our reservoirs. North Carolina Sportsman's January issue spotlights tactics used by fishermen to target big blues at two Tarheel State reservoirs: Lake Norman and Kerr Lake.

Also, waterfowl hunters get primers on how to kill late-season ducks, and how to set up for the tundra swans that invade eastern North Carolina in the winter.

Last but not least, see what kind of deer North Carolina hunters killed this past season, not only in an expanding Hunting Scrapbook, but in profiles of several huge bucks, including a non-typical from Guilford County that has to be seen to be believed. All in the January issue of North Carolina Sportsman, on sale now.
