A buddy and I fished Lake Norman from 6:00am-11:30 today and got onto some 3-5 pound blues early on. We have fished Norman several times this year with limited success, but today made up for it. We ended the day with 40 blues and channels. All of the fish were around points near deep water. The runs between points produced few fish, but the drifting up and off the points produced fish on every pass. The total of 40 surpassed my best day of 31 earlier this month. A great beginning and ending to the month.
