If you're looking for places to go, one of the textbook answers is to check out NCWildlife's Public Fishing Areas:
North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission

If you're looking for how to fish for NC fish, I'd start with "bass is bass"... If you fished for freshwater bass in Florida, I'd start by checking to see if the bass near Gastonia happen to speak Floridian. Ya sure can't lose much for trying -- at least your hook gets wet, which will make this week better than last week!

"They say" the water's cooling, and the topwater action ought to be coming alive... I'm still tryin' to figure this thing out myself... But one thing I've gotten down cold is that you're not gonna catch anything on a dry hook. :)
