    Default Lake Raleigh Crappie

    Well I went to Lake Raleigh this a.m., and low in behold their are fish in their. I caught two crappie in about 45mins using a jig. I've been fishing there every afternoon for a week without a bite. Ive yet to catch a bass but there are crappie. They were fairly small, about palm size, but i was just pleased to know they're fish there.

    I'm down too. Maybe we can get a group to head over there sometime. I live over by Meredith College. Fished Lake Raleigh with minnows about 2 months ago but the water was still cold. Two places on lake wheeler rd to buy minnows.

    I know of the gas station right next to the lake that sells minnows. Where is the other spot?
