    Ahhh, don't know a whole lot about Kerr myself, I would use Slip bobbers if I were you though. I fish Gaston almost everyday and have had success doing what other people aren't doing!

    Probally best for big Blues is frm Bluestone to the river or up the Dan river from northmost ramp. I have got smaller ones (3 to 10 lbs) under Rudds Creek bridge. Of course shad is best , they go for those small black bream (green sunfish) well. Seams the smaller the better. They are always around the rip_rap under the bridge. tha river channel is 2 pillings out. fish generally stack up on south side of bridge. Haven't hit there this year, let us know how you do:0a23:
