    Hi there, I'm returning to fishing after being away for a long time. Looking to connect with people who would like to explore local fishing spots and someday, saltwater shore fishing. Thanks, PJ
  2. Kayak Fishing
    Hey all, I live in the north hills area and have never kayaked the Neuse but am not super familiar with it other than infrequent bank fishing. I was wondering what some peoples favorite launch points are in the Raleigh area, i was thinking near the dam, the Buffalo road access, or the...
  3. Freshwater Fishing
    Falls Lake is slowing down for the winter but there are bites to be found! Plenty of bait but it happens early in the morning or late in the evening. https://ncflysite.files.wordpress.com/2016/12/img_20161205_210051.jpg

  5. Freshwater Fishing
    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...
  6. Freshwater Fishing
    After a long day of running errands and losing an expensive pair of sunglasses (grrr:mad:) I found myself with a free evening to get some fishing in. Taking out the kayak just felt like too much work, especially with the chance of showers everywhere, so I just made the short drive over to...
  7. Kayak Fishing
    A couple weekends ago MNBassman86 and I got out on the water with a couple reps from Biovex Bait company. They both live in central Florida and were passing through central NC on the way to vacation near Hatteras. When they told us they wanted to go, we went into full planning mode. Our goal...
  8. Freshwater Fishing
    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...
  9. Freshwater Fishing
    Hi everyone, I'm pretty new to the site and just getting in to fishing the neuse. I've lived in the Knightdale area for years and have fished local ponds frequently and lakes from time to time but never really realized the type of fishing I was overlooking when it comes to the neuse. I've...
  10. General Fishing Topics
    I just recently checked out Lake Crabtree for the first time. I drive on 40 almost everyday, and I have always wondered what that lake was and fortunately now I know. Now I want to know more about the fishing there. What spots are good to try? Boat docks or shore? Has anyone had success...
  11. Conservation & Regulation
    I am working with Restoration Systems (a wetlands and stream mitigation firm) to coordinate a campaign to raise awareness and build support for the removal of the Old Milburnie Dam on the Neuse River in Raleigh, NC. Removal of the dam would restore the river habitat and greatly improve fishing...

  13. General Fishing Topics
    Anyone in the Raleigh area heading out tomorrow? I have been looking forward to heading to Falls or Buckhorn, but the weather is saying winds 22-30mph. Anyone have any suggestions on the best way to fish in windy conditions. A few weeks ago, I left Falls b/c the wind was blowing me around even...
  14. NC Piedmont
    I spent the day today at Shelley Lake in Raleigh. I got out there at around 11:00 am, much later than I would normally go on any fishing trip. All I brought with me was my spinner rod, weighted bobbers, #6 red hooks, red swivels, water gremlins (weights), and a container of red wigglers. I...

  16. Freshwater Fishing
    I'm new to the site and relatively new to the area (I've been here for only a year, bass fishing here since early spring) and I'm looking for a few good bank fishing spots. My friends and I had a perfect pond on the border of Apex & Raleigh, but apparently it's a state research pond, says the...

    Hey everyone! Just joined last night and am loving all the info here. I am a senior at NC State University in Animal Science (hoping and praying with everything I've got to go to vet school afterwards). Finally got an apartment up here with some of my friends so I am now in search of places to...
  18. Freshwater Fishing
    I am new here and am a senior at NC State University. I finally got an apartment here in Raleigh so I have more time to search for fishing areas up here. I have been pecking around to try and find some places but everything feels quite restricted in this area. I like to fish off the bank and it...
  19. NC Piedmont
    Heard another fisherman say it this morning and man was it true! Must have been at least 50 water snakes that I saw this morning. Great fishing though! Went this morning with 4 large bass 14+inches, 1 huge catfish (over 24in) and a couple of small crappie and blue gill, all on my gulp minnows...
  20. Meet and Greet
    Hello! My girlfriend and I moved to the Garner / Triangle area recently and picked up the old fishing hobby again :) She's from New York and fished mostly off piers and I'm from NC - so my options were essentially ponds and lakes. We'd love to talk to or meet other couples in the area who...
