I have seen them caught around the Eaton Ferry bridge this time of year and seen them busting shad on the main lake from Eaton Ferry down the Stonehouse and Little Stonehouse creek.

10 4 on the redfins. I like to troll them, or greyish stickbaits, on Gaston from now thru the winter in the main lake. The south side in the channel which runs close to the shore running towards the dam is real good. About 2 miles south of the bridge and drop lines. Prolly gotta be 20' down now in the daytime - if they're feeding - 60' if they're not. You wont usually catch alot like Kerr, but the ones you hook are strong fish. Run a stickbait out on 6 - 7' leader off a 3-way. Then on the short 3 - 4' leader run that white bucktail - at least an ounce, if not 2oz, to get separation from the stickbait.. You might pull hardware 6 hrs without a bite, or you might bend every rod in the boat and pull nothing in less than 7lbs. Love that lake. But it is frustrating.
