    Default Bass Fishing Lake Raleigh

    Been out to lake Raleigh a couple times the past month, found the bass are biting decently along the banks on soft plastics. Lots of kayakers talking about bigger fish as well but off the bank it seems everyone can get a few. Check out this vid to see more!

    Thanks! The first time I caught anything there was last year when there was a lot of catfish and this year I’ve seen no catfish but a ton of bass

    they are in an album. not on digital anymore.

    Lake Raleigh was dry for 4 years. Dam was completely destroyed during hurricane Fran in 1996. took time to get engineers and construction on it and the new dam was finally closed early spring 2000. you could not fish it the first couple of years.
