Latest North Carolina Fishing Reports

Report By:
Fishing Rating: 1      Water Temperature: 65
Lake Chatuge fishing was slow today. We used Storm Blue Chrome Orange, Livingston Real Chad, Pumpkin Seed Worms. We even tried our luck at trolling. Went from one end of the lake to the other. Saw plenty of fish on the fish-finder however they weren\'t interested in whatever you presented. Could the \"spots\" have started there spawn.?

April 7th, 2015 - Lake Lure
Report By:
Fishing Rating: 5      Water Temperature: 60
The fishing has been outstanding on Lake Lure over the last week. Largemouth bass are aggressively hitting shad raps, jerk baits, and rattle traps along the creek basins in the back bays. Fish are holding on these edges in 8 - 20 foot water. For yellow perch, fish the 5 - 10 foot weedy bays with worms or minnows under a cork. You will also pick up some bull bluegill doing this. Smallmouth bass are holding where he Rocky Broad River flows into the lake. They love their crankbaits. White bass will start showing up in mid May and last until the end of July as they blitz the bait near main lake points. Book a trip aboard Lake Lure Fishing Excursions today! The fishing is hot and the lake is beautiful as always.

Fished from 7am to 2 pm. Caught 6 bass with the biggest being 3 pounds. We fished hard and wide spread. Four of the fish caught on crank baits, shad colors and two on blue 6 inch worms Texas rigging style. Dirty bottom with visibility only about 1.5 feet. My first time on the lake. Looks good but very flat bottom with no structure in open water. Did not fish in the cove near the dam. Saw another boat catch a 5.5 pounder, very nice fish under timber on the bank with plastic at approximately 12:00.
