I'm going to have to go with Kerr Lake on this one. I've had some great fishing experiences there.

Buggs Island, fishing is good, but it's easy to get away from the crowds of the Yadkin lakes and municapls during the summer.

I love lake Tillery, lots of boat docks, submerged trees,  prime rose, grass, coves, anything BASS like and anglers love.
Lately I've been fishing shearon Harris which is a great lake for very large mouth but you need to know where to go.
There are many people who fished for years and can not catch crap there but soon after you graph it and find the dig drop off points and big flats you will catch 8-9lb'er every time.

I am very fond of Lake Norman been fishing it all of my life and know a few secret little hotspots. I have very fond memories of fishing with my grandpa and dad on that lake, and have also pulled some monster bass from there.

Belews Lake has become a great lake to fish.  That is, except for the summer months.  The Ski traffic is terrible in the summer.

Jdaddy,
P.M. me and I'll give some tips about Badin. You may wish to try them or you may wish to say to yourself I'll pass that spot up, for various reasons.

I also like old city lake in Lexington. You can't have a trailer or an outboard motor. I have to use my old Bass hunter boat and drag it to the water.
There is no pressure towards the bass and I've probably caught enough 5 lbers to fill the bed of a pick up truck.
The only problem is that they put up a cut off telephone pole to keep people from putting the trailered boats in and it's hard to go around with a pickup.

I would have to say Roanoke river from Plymouth to Weldon NC.
I have lost and won many tournaments on that river.
Told my wife to cremate me when I die and throw me in at Weldon so I can drift out to the sound. v~

I'll have to go with Lookout Shoals. It's a small riverine lake with largely undeveloped shorelines...at least until the last couple of years. ~xyz I catch a lot of fish in the 5# range, and did well in local tournaments there when I still tournament-fished.

I would have to say the best lake ive fished in north carolina would have to be Jordan Lake. I like the underwater stumps there, plus ive only fished Badin and Jordan so theres not much to choose from there......YET!

This is a no brainer. Phelps lake by far is my favorite. I've fished ky lake, pickwick, eufaula, kerr ,gaston,  and most every lake and river in nc as well as th potomac. Phelps is just a special lake. Th scenery is awsome, seen 10 bears and 1 giant rattlesnake in four trips this year. Th fishin can be tough but they easily average 3 to 3.5 lbs and i have caught a 9 and a 10. i like wading th south side in mid summer and usually have th lake nearly to myself. emergent grass beds, lily pads, cypress trees and a few docks. lake can get very rough so check th weather b4 leaving.

Mine has got to be Lake Waccamaw.  Shallow, shallow fishing and the only people that really bass fish out there stay deep and fish off shore.  Suites me just fine.  That place fits my style of fishing so well, just wish it was a little closer.  Hate driving over an hour to fish anywhere.

Post by: Hoskins on May 20, 2011, 05:13:28 PM
I'll go with Jordan...but it is the only lake in NC that I've fished. Only other bass fishing has been done aboard base ponds on Camp Lejeune.

  Lake Sutton in Wilmington, power plant lake, early spring and early fall.  All types of fishing great tournament lake to get you ready for lake fishing.  Drop offs, ledges, cover, vegetation.  Bad parts, floating logs, so cant go wide open.  Different part of the lake offers different types of fishing, very clear lake, drop shotting works great, and finesse the heck out of them.  Swimbaits work too.....

I like Norman but I am biased because I live on it.  It's NC's largest lake and is arguably the toughest to pattern since the fish move so much.  Not really known as a "big fish factory" but can put out some very nice 6lb+ fish with regularity if you can find them.

It's big, complicated, gets a ton of pressure, and just all around tough which makes it a daily challenge to get out and be productive on.  For that reason I like it.   If I had to say most fun fishery to fish that has also has some really big fish in it I would say the Chowan River.  That place is another world in and of itself and really must be seen to admire how great it is.

Join us guys on the lower rent Child Boards "Carolina Bass Buddies" and enjoy our Rally's and 100% payback yet keeping the entry low low low  ~sun That's the  power in the much over taxed great State of North Carolina. Don't forget to thank Mr. T. Tillis running for US Senate in NC for raising the boat rest fee. ~b~ ~b~ If the teacher don't hang him the boaters will :-* :-* lo

Lake Norman no question this is the fastest growing area on the East Coast. The reason once you get here you can't leave all the roads are clogged and blocked lo lo lo lo lo  We even got a toll lane being added to I-77 that nobody wanted or locals will use. Ask the past governor, cost him the election lo lo lo lo sure nuff Lake Norman is the place to be lots of fish and some of the best landing in the state and free to all. The problem is getting here and leaving.  Here in the Carolina's we do have some of the best fishing year round of any place in the USA, water does not get hard and can fish 365 ~c~  I love and always loved the Chowan from the first time I layed eyes on in back in the 70's ~c~ Lately it has seen some tuff times the hurricanes and the hog farms dike breaking build next to the river so it would. :'( but headed back town end of this month for a few days with some of the old road trip crew :shocking: So watch out for those mean mough very black bass, snakes and please no mud fish lo lo Hoping Cannons Ferry landing is still OK that's the area we like. How about some reports.
