Fishing near Winston Salem... In need of some help
Hello folks, and tight lines from Upstate NY!
I plan on making a trip down to see my buddy in Winson Salem, and we plan on doing some local fishing a few of the days I am down. I actually planned my trip down to corrispond with the full moon at the end of March, hoping to catch the bass spawn... although that is at the end of my trip down. (Going down March 19-30th)
We will be fishing most likely from shore, as we do not have a boat... (Although we are contemplating fishing Kernersville lake and renting a row boat... however I have heard mixed reviews of that lake) We will fish for and catch anything that is of decent size... bass, catfish, whatever will give us a decent fight. All fish will be released, as we fish for recreation.
I guess what I'm trying to determine is what are the best options for success fishing from shore within a 30 minute drive of Winston Salem? Also what baits/lures seem to produce the late March bite?
And so you dont feel like I am wasting your time, I have done some searching and found minimal information on this region, nothing too recent and no real solid leads.
PS. If possible, I would love to be able to find the pond/lake/river suggested on google earth to see a visual picture of my upcoming battle field! Thanks for any info you can give up, I know its tough to give up them honey-holes!
