    Take your pick. They're all good, High Rock for flatheads, Badin for flatheads and blues, Tillery for blues. Not usre about Tuckertown, It used to hold lots of flatheads, but was raped by fisherman years ago. It should be recovered by now. Good luck!

    Tuckertown has improved some for numbers but most fish are 20 lbs. or less. Takes lots of years to replace the big flatheads that used to be there in numbers. That's one lake that was hurt really bad by rod and reel fishermen. Juggers did their damage too.

    Tuckertown is living proof that not just juggers, bush hookers, and trotliners can to irreparable damage to a body of water. Some people seem to think that just b/c you fish with a rod and reel you can't do what the other methods of fishing can do but Tuckertown was destroyed by rod and reel fishermen. I remember when I used to go bass fishing there, piles of dead flatheads would be all over the place by the boat ramps. It was a shame. Man I wish I'd have known about all the good catfishing in those lakes at the time. Never did catfish any of them except for High Rock and that was half arsed at best:smile2:

    I think your three closest lakes to Charlotte would be Lake Norman (my favorite, and the largest lake in NC/also where I'd like to have a BOC gathering sometime), Lake Wylie (on the NC/SC border) and Mountain Island Lake.

    Thats like asking which casino pays off more in Vegas. North Carolina is a great state for the outdoorsmen over all. Im partial to Badin. But since catgirl mentioned a BOC gathering sometime at Norman. My second lake would of course be Norman. Gotta keep them brownie points ya know.... :wink:
