Good afternoon folks. My screen name is as you see speadtrap I am in Greensboro, NC and I guess the lakes I fish are those in the Yadkin Chain and those to the East Kerr Lake, Gaston some along with Hyco and Mayo Res to the North. There are a few small city lakes near my home such as Macintosh in Burlington, NC. Hope everyone is staying cool these days as I am.

There is a pretty good group on central NC guys showing up here lately. I fish mainly the rivers around Greensboro, and what not. I live in Asheboro, ever want to do some river fishing just shoot me a pm.

Welcome to the party! I am learning those lakes for the first time this year fishing with the Jon Boat Bass club of NC.

What rivers you talking about? Only one I know about is the Deep and that is I think Randleman. Good lake but the city of G'boro runs it and that $15 to launch sucks. I have been going to Kerr Lake since I have a camper up there. Use to and still do at times fish the Yadkin Chain. Since this heat spell has been cooking everywhere I have not been out at all. Waiting for the temps to cool down then heading to Kerr to get and maybe move the camper to Hyco Res.

Oak Hollow Lake in High Point is the first lake on the Deep, over 800 acres good for bass, catfish, crappie, and hybrids. Easy boat launch, very reasonable fee. High Point City Lake is next, 10 hp restriction, but you can launch, just use your trolling motor only if you have a larger engine. Lake full of nice bass, fat as pigs, and crappie, catfish, etc.

Welcome. I fish Randleman a fair amount but that lake is starting to get more like a normal lake this season, not the fish-in-a-barrel setup it was when it opened. Oak Hollow has good fish in it but I have found it hard code to crack. High Point City Lake can be moody but the fish there really are shaped like footballs and you can have some good days out there if you're patient. I have been on Badin a handful of times, and I have been fishing Belews Creek during the cold months the last few seasons. It's a fun lake if you can adapt to the different "rules" the fish follow there compared to most other reservoirs.

I know very little about the Greensboro lakes. I fished Jeannette as a teenager back when it was the Guilford Wildlife Club but that's about it. Mackintosh has some quality fish but I don't get over that way very much; the two times I went we struggled to get a bite but there were guys who know the lake hauling in fatties like it was cool.

Welcome to NCAngler!

Yes Sir I live in the Mcleansville side of G'boro. I use to fish the city lakes of G'boro but don't anymore. Guess the closest lake is "The Mac" and have done that lake so much the lake wardens know me by name. By the way they are a good bunch of folks. The primary lakes I plan to start fishing more are Hyco Res near Roxboro, Mayo also near Roxboro, and dof course Kerr Lake North of Henderson, NC. Sometimes I lake making the trip over to "The Muddy Yadkin Chain" . All these lakes are fine fisheries but not as good as those places I use to fish in South Louisiana but that is OK.
