This nearly 7-pound spotted bass will be the new state record if the catch is certified by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. Pending state-record spotted bass landed on Lake Norman

Shortly after Eric Weir of Belmont landed a 6-pound, 5-ounce spotted bass out of Lake Norman the day after Christmas in 2003, he made two predictions: first, that his record wouldn’t last long; and second, that it would be broken by another fish caught at Norman.

Eight years may or may not qualify as “lasting long,” but Weir’s second prediction came true on Saturday, Feb. 11, when Terry Trivette of Rural Hall landed a 6.97-pound spotted bass while fishing during a local Troll-Eze bass club tournament with partner Derick Tolley on Lake Norman.

The North Carolina Marine Fisheries Commission voted 4-3 Friday (Nov. 4) to set in place more stringent recreational fishing regulations governing the harvest of spotted seatrout – effective Nov. 14.

The agency said in a news release the regulation change, which drops the daily creel from six to four fish (at least 14 inches in length), was “a short-term measure" to address overfishing.

Besides ringing up a $10 billion price tag for cleanups from North Carolina to New York, Hurricane Irene has become the gift that keeps on giving.

One of North Carolina anglers’ favorite fall surf-fishing destinations — Portsmouth Island, aka North Core Banks — has been rendered off-limits, probably until 2012, by the storm’s effects.

While Hurricane Irene had weakened to a Category 1 storm by the time it reached the North Carolina shore last Saturday (Aug. 27), it proven to be a very damaging storm.

In fact, some are calling it the most-damaging Category 1 hurricane ever.

Almost a week after the storm, many are left without electricity, many with homes too damaged to live in and part of the state is still without access.
