Have visitors coming in from out of town for the weekend just to fish, but don't really know who to contact on Lake Norman to find out what's biting on what and where. Any suggestions?

This is according to Captain Gus's report. He updates his report weekly and is usually pretty accurate. The address is Home of Fishing with Capt. Gus and the Fishing Pros! Lake Norman Fishing Guide and Charter Boat Service

The Hot Spot of the Week: Nice catches of catfish and bass have been reported around the islands north of the Lake Norman State Park. Warmer water temperatures have bass, catfish and white perch biting. Stripers are still active in major creek channels and up river. The lake level is 2.5' below full pond and the water temperature is in the high seventies and low eighties.

Dave I gotta say we were all over that area that Cap'n Gus mentions and not a nibble, from lures, to jigs, to poppers, to shad, to worms, live and artificial, we wet everything in the tackle box. I think the couple was jinxed because they left Sunday morning and my daughter and I went out Sunday evening and caught 10 bass and a dozen or so perch and sunfish in about two hours.

Update on Lake Norman - now that water temps are coming up, we're seeing more strikes in various locations around the lake. At 33,000 acres, there's not a given sweet spot, but a few fairly regular fishing holes out there. The problem with fishing a lake of this size is finding those sweet spots, and I don't have a fish finder on the boat (yet).

Only caught a few small one's, but then the fishing's not always about what you catch, so notice the beautiful sunset too. What a way to relax!!!
