I live about 10 minutes from the NE Cape Fear and 20 minutes from Black River, however I fish the Trent and Neuse rivers more frequently when I'm not fishing the crappie tournaments.

Hi Jeffrey, I haven't. Been to rice lake since they started the new regulations 2010 my son married a local girl 25yrs ago so we all go. To one of the resorts for a week. We have been going to Bobs lake near by, less pressure and the gills willing. You should try it, you can actually get tired of catching bluegills.

Hey Jeffrey, do those big gills bite all year in those dark water swamps? My wife and I will be relocating to the Charlotte area. I wonder if Norman and Wylie are good panfish lakes? I am sure they are. I want to take a ride out to your waters and maybe down to Santee Cooper also when we get there. Have you fished any of those lakes? I heard SC has some big bream.

Will do.Hope for an early spring this year

Hey Jeffery..I catch Blue gill from time to time but you know my realy passion. I just got back from a Florida Business trip a few days ago and I could watch the fish just swimming around. I didnt have the time to fish. To much to do in such little time.
