March Break Fishing Vacation

March Break Fishing Vacation
Well, I got sick of the snow, the ice and slush, and it's another 3 months until opening day for bass here, so I decided to take a short vacation to do some fishing. A long drive later, I was in sunny Huntersville, North Carolina on the shores of Lake Norman, famous for it's bass, whether they are stripers, spotted, or largemouths. Lake Norman is man-made, created in 1963 by Duke Energy to contain water used for coolant for the McGuire Nuclear Plant. The water is warmer than normal, allowing for fishing all year around. And the fishing was good!! Thanks to my guide Drew Montgomery, we found lots of spotted bass and a couple of largemouth. Though it was still early in the season, the bass were plentiful and biting! My girlfriend and son loved the warm weather and calm waters of Lake Norman while I got a sore shoulder from all the hooksets! And the southern hospitality was not hard to take either. I highly recommend anyone needing some late winter/early spring fishing to go to Lake Norman!
