first i have to say this is the best site that i have found for information. all the suggestions that i have recieved have been very helpful. and everybody is willing to give up information. I have been fishing lake norman with limited success during the morning. I have been drifting and picking up little blues and channels. I am going out saturday afternoon and staying after dark. I was wondering what would be better, drifting or anchoring, and going deep or trying shallow. the water temp should be about 60 or better. I don't know the lake well enough to really venture below the route 150 bridge.
