Reel Fishing
The spring striper run up the Roanoke River is famous, but the fishing is just as good in the Albemarle Sound before the spawning run begins. Albemarle Sound stripers are there for the taking before the spawning run begins

Stripers are one of the winter staples for fishermen in Albemarle Sound, and Capt. Karl Helmkamp of Fistful Charters knows all about them, especially how to catch them.

Colorful and aggressive, a hungry dolphin will hit just about anything in front of its nose that even remotely resembles a meal. Dancing with the dolphins is a real possibility for North Carolina’s offshore fishermen in April

Peanuts. Gaffers. Slingers. Bailers. Goats of the sea. These all reference the fish known as dolphin or Mahi-Mahi. They are the most plentiful of offshore sportfish, and though they primarily course the warm waters of the Gulf Stream, by late-summer, anglers can catch these fish in nearshore waters around wrecks and natural reefs.

For spring bass fishing, North Carolina anglers will be hard-pressed to beat Randleman Reservoir. Relatively new Randleman Reservoir has all the makings of a great spring bass lake

If February and March are months when a queen-size bass might show interest in a lure, April is the time that anglers have the best chance to encounter truckloads of chubs.

A spinnerbait can be a very effective prespawn bait on Kerr Lake when bass move into the shallows this month. Water level, water temperature will lead anglers to Kerr Lake bass as the spawn approaches.

When the warm, afternoon sun warms the shallows to the 45- to 52-degree range, the underwater world at Kerr Lake, aka Buggs Island, becomes a stage for largemouth bass. They’ll start transitioning from their winter haunts to staging areas near their spawning grounds and stick around until warmer water triggers their instinct to spawn.

Ride the bass wave to great fishing at Lake Hickory. April is prime time to catch lots of nice largemouth bass on Lake Hickory.

Bass pro Tracy Adams has made no bones about the fact that he’s most comfortable fishing for bass in shallow water. He loves picking up his baitcasting rod and flipping or pitching soft-plastic crawfish baits into a couple of feet of water, setting the hook when a nice largemouth grabs hold.

Sierra’s Lower Unit Fill/Drain Kit Sierra’s Lower Unit Fill/Drain Kit

Sierra’s new Fill/Drain Kit features two fittings that permanently replace the upper vent plug and lower drain plug in your outboard or stern drive lower unit. Service adapters are threaded on one end and barbed on the other to accept a hose or tube. When screwed into the fittings the service adapters disengage the check valves, allowing for fluid to flow in and out of the lower unit through the affixed hoses and into appropriate containers. This kit takes the mess out of changing gear lube and makes inspection easy and neat.

March is a month when you can catch some really nice bass on both the upper and lower end of reservoirs. Time for the big move

March can bring on one of the most-exciting and challenging times of the year to fish. Bass are no doubt on the move, the weather is all over the map and heavy rains can muddy up water in a hurry.

What to look for? In February, you have lots of fish still in wintering spots — stable areas with not much current and good clarity. These fish can still be really deep, but by March, the bulk of them have moved up.
