  1. Meet and Greet
    I moved close to Kernersville last year in March and have been trying to really get back into fishing, mainly for largemouth/smallmouth but I definitely wont turn down a good panfish or catfish spot! I just have zero knowledge about the lakes in this area. I grew up 20 minutes from lake Eufaula...

    After a weekend down east, me and Cody met up for a brief swamp session on a hot Labor Day afternoon. The creek in question was a swampy, blackwater Neuse creek that had been a golden spot for chunky creek bass before hurricane Matthew, so we were unsure of present day conditions. We launched...

    Met jbarefoot22 at some local water after work yesterday to see if we could find any big girls biting. I had been reading epic saltwater reports all day from the likes of curtis, Greenmonster, and J.Edwards, and to say I was antsy to be fishing saltwater was a drastic understatement...
  4. Freshwater Fishing
    I have never been to lake Norman before and we are thinking about going down there and fishing sometime. I was wanting to know what types of bait live in the lake, and what baits seem to be working. Also I saw from maps there are a lot of docks on lake and wondering if flipping docks could...
  5. Freshwater Fishing
    So I've really started working with my GoPro lately on getting some fishing videos when I caught this bass this morning at Chatuge. It's the first time I've worked with slowing down the video and I'm really impressed by it. Here's the video if interested: https://youtu.be/1q1uROEo3v0
  6. Gear and Tackle
    I was looking to purchase some of the Charlie Brewer slider heads, worms, grubs. I was wanting the ones to catch bass on and possibly the smaller ones to catch crappie on. I would appreciate any recommendations on each as far as size and which ones to get as there are quite a few to chose from...
  7. Freshwater Fishing
    I am recovering from surgery on my back last week and am feeling fine. I knew that I shouldn’t be fishing yet and put strain on it, but it was a beautiful day and I was tired of being inside. I grabbed my lightest rod with 6lb line and went to a pond at a local park. Pan fish wouldn’t stress me...
  8. NC Coast
    went kayaking on greenfield lake on friday. Caught one 5-6 pound bass that gave me a huge jump during the fight on small tackle. Fish was caught near one of the metal algae machines. Using a red 4/0 wide gap worm hook on a yum dinger
  9. Bank Fishing
    Rough start to the bass year so far, lots of skunks and a couple dinks. Was at one of my favorite spots this morning in the rain and finally latched onto a decent pair! The second, and smaller, of the two caught came out of the water with a huge gash in his side! The tail was also looking...
  10. Meet and Greet
    Hey guys, To be honest this is the first time on a forum, but was recommended to check it out. I just recently moved to the Southern Pines/Pinehurst area a few weeks ago. Originally from West Virginia (yes the state, not western virginia ha). I told my wife there better be some good fishing...

    Man am I excited! As some of you know I just last year started getting more serious about Bass fishing. Fished a few tournaments with the Jon Boat Bass club of NC last year and, well, didn't do so well. I took advantage of the time on the water to watch and learn from others and get used to...

  13. Freshwater Fishing
    Hey everybody, My family recently relocated down to the south Charlotte area, and I'm looking to do some pond fishing before I head back to Chapel Hill in a couple weeks. I've caught some nice bass in a golf course pond in my neighborhood but am looking to try some more spots. I live really...

    Fished the Cashie River near Plymouth. Most of the day was slow until the Gar went bananas. I have no interest in catching them but they lit up my screen so we went for it. We were there for Pickerel and Bass. Ended up with a nice Yellow Perch as well.
  15. Meet and Greet
    Name's Ben ... but you can call me Nardo422. I'm new here but always looking for some good tips/advice and potentially some lakeshore fishing buddies in the Cornelius area ... since I don't have a boat, I spend most of my fishing time on the banks. At the time of this post, I'm currently on a...
  16. NC Mountains
    I've fit a few shorter floats into a busy schedule lately on the local flows. It's hard not to when you know the fish are chewing hard right now. We have been catching them on all kinds of lures, but most impressively they have started to take topwater with reckless abandon!! Caught about 15...
  17. Freshwater Fishing
    It's been almost two years since I've been on here, but I'm back!!! Okay so the other day a couple of friends and myself went down to High Rock Lake. We caught all the usual channel cats and bluegill. The last fish that I landed was a little bit of a surprise though. I knew it was some type of...
  18. NC Piedmont
    Caught a little guy on my way back from Walmart when I stopped real quick. Used a watermelon plastic worm rigged wacky. He's maybe 1lb.
  19. NC Piedmont
    Had a great November pond fishing day last Friday in Cary, NC. My Grandpa and uncle were in town, so we headed down to the neighborhood pond for some catfishing in the evening. It took a while to find them, but once we did, we got into a few good ones. All in all, we caught 6 with the smallest...
  20. Fishing Clubs
    Iv'e been looking for the past few weeks on how to join either a tournament or a club. Nothing I read makes much sense because I am new to the whole club and tournament scence but not fishing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I live right outside of wake forest and I know that there are...
