    Starting the end of quarantine I’ve been doing some real casual fishing in Western Wake and Chatham County areas. Found a nice, not so secret, body of water and threw out a piece of cut bait and caught a nice channel cat. I’ve caught nothing but bullheads and smaller channels so this is...
  2. Kayak Fishing
    Hey All - looking for a kayak fishing buddy for a catfish trip this Saturday to Kerr lake. I last went at the end December and managed to catch a few eater-size blues up to about 10 pounds or so. Hoping to catch some bigger ones this trip and have enough recently caught (and frozen) white perch...

    As is the usual lately, jbarefoot22 and myself met up at a local Neuse River launch after work and set up in our spot just before dark in search of some hungry cats. Just at the edge of dark, I was greeted with the beautiful sound of screaming drag and my rod bouncing back in forth in the...

    Haven't posted in a while so figured I would throw up a quick report since the Ice Bowl is right around the corner. Fishing through late December- early January was a bit strange since the water was so high and muddy. But we still managed to find some patterns that were working. I haven't put...

    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...

    Took a break from studying Saturday night to wet a line. It's my second year at NCSU, but first that I've brought any tackle down with me, so I've been hoping to try a few different spots. I tried Bond Park and Lake Raleigh a couple weeks ago, but both seem pretty rough from the bank. It seemed...

    Before supper, I rode out to the Black Creek bridge near the house with my little brother for a little bit of fishing, hoping to catch a gar. Didn't pull in any gar (though they were surfacing everywhere), but did have a considerable amount of luck in the 35 minutes I was down there. I used...

    I'm looking for a good lil catfish hole in Jacksonville. I want to be able to go after work. I've tried some places I've found on here, but they are marked private property. I don't have my boat up here so it has to be bank fishing. Any suggestions?

    Took a trip tonight to Robeson Creek off of Jordan Lake to do a little nighttime catfishing. The bugs were numerous, the water was high, but the fish were in a feeding frenzy. The strikes were on bottom and on floats. A lot of debris and floating trash dotted the water, but that didn't stop the...

    Hello, I am new to this forum, and I have joined for some advice. I really enjoy fishing for catfish, but am having some trouble finding spots. I am in the Raleigh/Durham area and found a spot to catch channel cats, but I really want to find a spot to catch bullheads. If anyone has any...

    Spent the day at Moss Lake. Winds were calm but it was hot and humid. Water temps between 79 and 83. Tried long lining for crappie in several different places around the lake with little luck. One 8" crappie about 10' down in 14fow. We were marking plenty all about 10' down in 10 to 20 fow...

    So I caught this huge hog on my fly rod the other night. I was thinking it was a white catfish, but others are telling me it's a channel. Can anyone positively ID this guy?

    Just finished fishing Badin today before that hard rain hit! We had a good bite this morning from launch time to about noon. Once the sun came up the bite got a little tougher to pull a fish! We caught our limit before 8 o clock, mainly on topwater. No monsters but mainly all 1.5 pound each...
