Freshwater Fishing in North Carolina

Falls Lake

Moved to NC last year, didnt get much time to fish as my wife was well into her pregnancy. Now my son is 4 months old, and the canoe is out with new trolling motor and seats (neither mounted yet) and getting excited to get on some water! Any helpful tips for a mountain trout fishermen at a new home lake? Anything will help!!!

Turkeys!!

I have been reading, and watching your bass pro shop video GT pretty good calls there man! I have been wanting to buy a bow and start doing some hunting, have been shooting for years, and love shooting the squirrels with a fast pellet gun! :) Been thinking about going out to butner for a walk and stalk a few furrys and get a fell for turkeys or even deer. So does the tree stand regs only apply to rifles? What great areas for turkeys or deer?

Info

Thanks NCFandH, Yeah My friend and fellow Poster of this site, 'Bearice'.. Kinda set me up on that Bass Pro deal LOL...He was over-head in the Archery Station looking down but I know he is sitting at Home right Now Practicing to that little Video he made LOL...Another Frequent Poster to this Site is 'Chad B' and Buddy, Let me tell Ya... He has Knocked a BIG Dent in the Squirrel population this Year...Think the last I remember , He had took 103..Just From the Butner Game lands, Not counting the other Lands he Hunts LOL...He might have left you a few. Yeah Turkey Hunting is by far my Biggest Passion but I also LOVE Bow Hunting But with recent Shoulder Pain during Cooler weather, I used a Crossbow this Year and I'll admit...It just didn't feel right but still a Load of Fun...Had countless shot opportunities but only Took 2 Deer with it....Like I said, Drop in at your convenience and I'm sure you will learn alot...Some Great People on here as well....In the meantime, Check out the Forum of Older Post Like Chad B's Great Squirrel Hunts and Diane's AWESOME Fishing excursions....Shes a Pro LOL

Hunting

You are very close to the deer belt of NC. Lots of nice deer up your way and a little west of you 'Chatham and Orange County'. I'm a little south of you...Roseboro which is between Fayetteville and Clinton.



Falls is a good lake as well as Sharon Harris. Sharon Harris has some Bow Only hunting land however I have never tried them. Too many deer here in Sampson county. Check Lake Wheeler as well. It's a sun up til sundown private lake which is the only downside but I have pulled some big bass out of their. My best day ever fishing I caught 2 8 pounders a 6 and a 4 in 15 minutes. That will probaly never happen again.



Check out 'Sawmillman and JTR' both members in your area!

craigslist

I don't know anyone looking to sell one right now but check craigslist. I've seen several on there and sometimes you'll find a really good deal just because someone needs some cash. I've got several deals on deer stands over the past couple years like that.
