    Kentucky or Alabama? The VADGIF stocked Kentucky spots in the Falling River near Brookneal years ago, and now the Staunton is full of them. I don't know how well Kentucky bass would fare in Kerr Lake, but it is likely Kentucky Spots are already in Kerr.

    My chief concern is either species getting in the Roanoke River, and the whole lower Albemarle basin including the Chowan. Kentucky Spots were introduced in the Lumber which is a trib of the Little Pee Dee. The Little Pee Dee is a top shelf largemouth fishery that will probably soon fall.

    I would LOVE to see spots in buggs island or "Kerr" as very few call it. It would be like another lake Hartwell. I would especially love being that I recently moved and live much closer to it than before. It is very suitable for the coosa spots. They would get BIG.

    And perhaps I've greatly missed something somewhere in the last 30 years but I or anyone I know has ever regarded the pee see as a top shelf trash fish fishery. I've fished it quite a few times from top to bottom and it was terrible. I never hear anything good about it by people that fish it regularly. But maybe I just missed the party.

    Trash fish again.. King of the black bass species is hardly a trash fish. But those little spotted snakes you chase are. Now tell me about those "huge 3 and 4 pound fish " you catch, and how much they out fight bigger largies, blah blah..lol

    I would hate to see the Smallie fishing in James decline. I have enjoyed catching them there for numerous years now. I do not target them, but do catch them often while targeting Walleye.

    I thought the Kokanee were considered a done deal in NC. Per the report I read, there was not much sign of any spawning occurring. Is NC planning on restocking them now ?

    Oh lord, I knew it wouldn’t take long for this dumb article to surface on here when I saw it earlier.

    Speaking of which, went to Hartwell last week for 3 days. Day 1 - 60 bass(40 largemouth and 20 spots), day 2 40 bass(38 largemouth and 2 spots), day 3 50-60 bass(40 largemouth and roughly 20 spots).......the spots have really decimated the largemouth population.

    I went to a trash fish lake today and had 10 bites. Water was 47-51 degrees, couldn’t hardly beg for a bite. If I had been on a spotted bass lake that wouldn’t have been a problem.

    Kb_rn looks like he might have been dropped too many times when he was a baby. Those 3 to 4 pound spots look to be weighed on the so called “Brown scale”. These Alabama spots have ruined many well known largemouth and smallmouth fisheries. I saW a recent chart showing the decline of largemouth on Lake Norman. I believe it could be Boyd Duckett’s attempt to ensure that the BPT has locations that 1 pound bass fish can be captured. It’s a shame that lakes like Chatuge and Lake Norman have been overtaken by these invasive Roll Tide bass. I can only pray that the NCWRC can save these lakes and put a stop to the spread of the spotted rats!
