The white bass have finished their spawn. They are beginning to blitz the baitfish in 20 - 40 foot water. We've caught many on silver jerkbaits and shadraps. For a Lake Lure fishing excursion, this is the time to fish.
Can anyone tell me where to find the water temperature for the Cape Fear River at different locations. I am normally a saltwater guy but I need to learn how to catch some catfish to lower the 'fever' during these winter months. Thanks for your help.
The striper fishery on LKN may not be all the way back, but it's on its way. The new hybrids are doing great, with good topwater action many days. They can be caught deep on live bait or artificials when tehy are not near the surface. The stripers that remain are good size, for LKN, with 10-13 lb'ers mixed in with the 5-8 lb. fish. Though the hybrids are reaching legal length, please practice....
This is a 17 lb 10 oz Blue we caught today out of High Rock. He was caught in the main river channel on the bottom. He bit a 6 inch whole shad. I have fished for years in High Rock and this is only the second one we've ever caught. The other one was 5 lb and we caught him on a jug. We caught 15 cats today from 3:30 pm to 8 pm. A few channels but mostly flatheads ranging from 5 pounds to 25.8....
Hi everybody there has been alot of talk over the years about fishing in lake James just Wont people to know there is still alot of big fish In the lake. Father's Day 2015 I got a 51 pound FlatHead in 3 feet of water.
With the plentiful bait that is stocked into Lake Lure, the fish grow fat. Moreover, they learn to school as a team by chasing the bait to the surface, crashing it, then picking off the loner baits that have been separated from the school. All this means top water action is hot on Lake Lure in June and July during morning and evening hours. Check out some of these that we recently caught....
I put my boat in Boiling Springs Lakes ( near Southport, NC) yesterday. This is the first time I have been fishing there. I went late and didn't have much luck. I used the Alton Lennon boat ramp...not sure which lake this was since there are several. Does anyone have any tips or success stories there. Looking for any help. Also, what are the other good Bass fishing spots around that....

Hybrid Stripers are still very active. We caught 12 nice Hybrids along with Stripers, White Perch & Spotted Bass. Fish are feeding between 30-40ft and still striking Alabama Rigs. Hot locations are Mile Marker 7 & 13 running in the river channels. All fish were catch and release. Happy Fishing.
I tried to explain to people that it was going to rain this morning at the coast, but not where I was going to go fishing. Oh no, it's going to rain and I don't want to fish in the rain. Ok, BoBo and I got in the truck and we went fishing by ourselves. And thankfully, I was right..... It never rained the whole time BoBo and I were fishing....
Can anyone tell me what times of the year are best for fishing at Lake Jordan. I have fished mostly spring and gotten cats, crappie and bass. Just wondered what kind of fishing there is in other seasons. I don't have a boat so mainly fish from the shore or pier. Thanks for the info.
It was about 11:45 Saturday morning when I cut the belly out of a large gizzard shad. It took about fifteen minutes until he bit the bait. I missed the first time but got him a minute later and was up against the fight of my life. It lasted about five minutes and he didn't surface till about the last two minutes. We had him up against the dock and got The Fish Grip on him. He weighed 46 pounds....
Winter fishing is going very well at both Norman & James. On Norman, spotted bass, stripers, hybrids & cats are feeding aggressively on large schools of small shad & herring midway to the backs of major creeks in 20-50 ft of water. Match the hatch with live shad, herring or shiners fished throughout the water column as needed. Numerous artificials are effective - jigs, Alabama rigs,....
Grabbed a few and lost a few...And was able to talk my Daughter into going today and we had a blast...with everyone in the water we didn't have a video man but still took a few pictures before we released them back. Guessing 1 was around 30 and other was about 20ish
On My days off I've been Cat-fishing for some R&R (Rod&Reel)relaxation and recently caught my personal 2nd Best with this 48 Pound stud!!! My scales were acting funny being a 50 pound scale but after several readings between 46 and Error I split the difference and called him 48 Pounds. I caught a 54 Pound Flathead in 2011 from this pier and hundreds of pounds of 20s and 30s and all were....
Went out with a good friend and Fly fishing guide Justin Anderson of Fontana Guide service and learned to Euro-Nymph, and was catching fish literally within minutes after not having casted a fly in 8-10 years - 2 men - 20+ fish in a couple of hours - great time on the river
