Me and my buddy headed out to croatan national forest yesterday to try out some of the spots there and wow! The place is really nice and was a good get away from everything! First, we went to haywoods landing and fished around the bank there but didnt get any luck, just a couple of bites. Then we headed over to catfish lake and did pretty good using some chicken liver and fishing on the bottom. I got 6 flatheads and my buddy got 2, they werent very big but it was a good time. Anybody know how or where I gotta go to get some big ones? Also, I know i might not be in the right forum here but I bought my first flyrod over the weekend and I was wondering if anybody knew of a good spot for me to get staryed with my flyrod and does anybody know of a tackle shop around jacksonville where I can get some gear? Tgats about it for now thanks for the help and have a good one!
