woke up 5am on 8/16/07 throwed kayak zoar sport in truck. Set there thinking i can go fishing any where in the USA I WANT. Bcause i am a FREE MAN. we all take this for granted. GOD BLESS ALL OF OUR TROUPS PAST AND PRESENT. Saw 6 deer 2 were this years model. Caught 7 wide mouths 2 brim. Put in at 49 launch. Caught first bass across from pier on fly rod. Went along bridge to other side went away from dam. Past a slew of islands. Missed at least 10 bass on plastic. Thay ate the red claws off my cray fish and the yellow tales off my lizards. Found a 6 or 7 foot pipe going under rail road. Got a running start, paddle was to long, pulled my way through with my hands. A 5 acre pond lost a nice 1. On the way back in saw a gang of bass had a bunch of shad surrounded in the shallow cove to the left. Got 6 on a roostertail. It was hard to leave thay were still hitting but it was dark.I left at 8 pm .The weather and god was very good to me .The trip was too long for HOT WIRE my jack russell. Had the time of my life. Thanks ZOOKER you were right. HIP

Years ago the largemouth would school up under the 49 bridge this time of year in the heat of the day. Don't know if they still do or not but worth a shot.

I haved fished on lake norman all my life. Stripers of any size on artificial in a kayak are hard to find. If you were me where would you go in NC. Something tells me you have been there. I woke up today and my truck was running. Went out and opened the door there was a monkey inside. And the next thing i remember im at the tackle store so we mys-well buy some striper stuff. After seeing what i had dun.I went back in and bought a port potty . I am now living in my out building HA HA mite as well go fishing. can you help me HIP

I've got a tent and a gas stove and some lanterns and other things for such occasions.I've found that it is easier to stay somewhere besides the back yard where you have to smell all of those home cooked meals. It is too hot to camp at the lake so my suggestion is to go back to the tackle shop and buy some trout gear and move on up into the Smokies for a couple of weeks. By then if you are lucky she will get worried about you. She might even let you come in and take showers in the evenings.:D

When I woke up this morning, through the door of the out-building, I could see a jar of peanut butter and a loaf of bread. The note said, "you can use the garden hose anytime you want." She's warming up now, so I'll be fine. This is all fun and games, but in reality I'm probably a couple of more rides with the monkey away from that building. :D Thanks for the reply, and I hope your brakes squeal. HIP
