For those of us who like to “wet a hook” Wilmington NC is paradise found. We have some of the best salt and freshwater fishing this area has to offer. Just yesterday I awoke early, hooked the boat up and headed to Sutton Lake. Sutton Lake is the cooling facility for Progress Energy. The water stays warm year round and the Largemouth bass fishing is wonderful. The lake is located only 15 minutes from Landfall. What a treat to be able to get up early, catch a few fish and be back at the office by 9:00. Does life get any better? I was bragging to a friend this morning about my catch and he informed me he had an incredible morning catching speckled trout in some of our local saltwater bays. He had one trout that weighed over 8 lbs. That, my friend, is a “big one.” I will continue to keep everyone posted on what is biting. In the mean time take a kid fishing and please practice catch and release.
