    Channel cats, spotted bass and nice bluegill at the shores of the Marshall Plant last evening. No big blues but still fun fish on light tackle. Lots of little spots hitting anything that moved, the bluegill were taking crappie jigs and the channel cats were coming in the rocks and hitting worms...

    Between traveling, promoting the book, and family matters it has been WAY too long since I had a line in the water. So I headed over to the lake tonight, and this tasty channel cat was there to welcome me back.

    You know you’ve had a good night of fishing when you lose a thirty pound catfish right at the shore on your last cast, and you don’t even get upset. That’s what happened to me last night by the time I left Lake Norman after spending the dark hours targeting blue catfish at the Marshall Steam...

    Going over every night and getting in on the LKN catfish action. Cut shad or bream is the ticket. Channel cats are hitting in the evening and big blues at night.:) Catfish hitting like crazy at Lake Norman right now

    Went down to Lake Norman after dark. I'd promised Jenn a catfish and didn't want to disappoint. Took me awhile but this blue came along and helped me out. Shad are all over the top and shallows of the lake, cut shad gets the kitty!

    Went fishing on Lake Norman yesterday evening with Wes Lewis and Josh Wahab and we got into some very nice crappie, largemouth bass, spotted bass, and white perch action. The fish were not nearly as active as last week and we did not find any striped bass, but Wes was still able to put on some...

    Spring fishing is going strong on Lake Norman. Largemouth and spotted bass are very active now and the catfsih bite has been strong (as you can see). Striped bass are also schooling and hitting and white perch are everywhere. Great news on other lakes too. Spring fishing for largemouth bass...

    Fished at the Marshall Steam Station in the rain today. Water was muddy and didn't get any hits on lures. Had to resort to bloodworms on the bottom, and caught several stripers that way including one keeper. Jeffrey Weeks Charlotte Fishing Examiner

    New to the website but wanted to post a report. On 2/16/10 I fished the Mcguire Hothole from 1-4:30pm and caught 7 stripers, 5 being over 21 inches. We also caught 6 greenheads and 1 huge cat over 17 pounds! Drifted around with large bass minnows. Will be back at it again tomorrow. Good Fishin!

    I just figured I would post something on one of my favorite fishing spots. Apparently it is a great spot to crappie fish but I'm more of a bass fisherman. I have always had menial luck there and it is a great place to bream fish. Everyone let me know how you do here and what you catch.

    Hey everyone. I live in Lincolnton and was wondering where some good places to bank fish were in the area. I have been to the Hot Hole and State Park Lake but I'm looking for some more places around maybe something a little closer. Thanks and good luck to everyone.
