Hello. I live in Wake Forest, NC. My brother is coming down from Pittsburgh in mid-October and we want to head south to fish for a weekend. We are pretty wide open with what we will fish for. We typically fish for small mouth and large mouth bass from kayaks in either rivers or lakes. We are open to being close to the coast also if there are cool places to fish from kayaks that are not in the ocean.
Any and all advice would be appreciated.
I was out Sunday in my kayak from about 4 - 7. There were large fish jumping all around me. At first I assumed they were bass but then I started second guessing when I didn't get a bit the whole day. I just moved to NC this year and this is my first spring.
Any ideas? Are there carp in Falls Lake? I moved from Pittsburgh and at times in lakes in western PA the same type of thing would happen but they were all carp.
I was using Shap Raps and spinnerbaits. Over the past year I have fished Falls Lake a hand full of times from my kayak and have had very limited success.
Let me know what you think.
