    Summer patterns are in effect. Lake Hickory stripers can be found on main channel points on the lower end of the lake, or in holes up in the river. Live herring are the best bait, but gizzard shad work too.

    Lake Norman has big schools of white perch near the backs of coves and creeks in 20-30ft of water. Spotted bass on main channel points on the lower end of the lake. And stripers along the main channel down south, or in holes up in the river. Catch the perch and spots on crankbaits, spinners, topwater, or minnows. Try umbrella rigs or live herring or shad for the stripers. Use the white perch you catch as bait for big cats, bass, & stripers. Fish On!
