Rather than start a new thread for LKN fishing reports each week I will just use this thread. Today (July 13, 2007) was a cloudy day with N to NE winds of 3 to 8 MPH and the water (surface) temp. was 84 to 86 degrees. Three boats that I know of were fishing this morning for cats, plus two NCDNR shocker boats. Two of the three catfish boats caught 10 fish each and one of the two caught 30 white perch. It was a late bite, starting about 9 AM and lasting until around 10:45 AM. My group had two doubles and the other boat had one. I was using carp, bass and white perch strips and the other boat was using white perch only. The third boat got into some schooling bass and white perch and only caught one cat by accident, but got a bunch of bait for the freezer. I am sure the shocker boat caught more bass, perch, cats, crappies, etc. than every body combined fishing on the lake. I have not detected a thermocline on LKN as of this date.
