    mack in NC should know. He has some good insight on that end of the state, and on the entire state for that matter.

    only place in the lower cape i ahve bank fished is below lock #1.........about 50 yds below the ramp....used to be pretty good there though i quit bank fishing there as the coe doesnt allow dogs there for some reason and i usually like to take my dog if i am going to sit back and bank it.......fished at the other locks but only by boat.....wade fished the cape between buckhorn and raven rock...some nice cats in there but it is small baot , canoe water.......mark knows some good spots right around fayettenam....mack

    I have fished below lock 2 by the ramp and caught some fish. I caught some blues there around 20lbs and some smaller ones. I have fished around the dam there also in a boat and have caught some. I just haven't gone there in a long time mostly because I catch a lot on the neuse and its a lot closer for me.

    The area below lock 1 is good for bank fishing. I know a guy who goes out there pretty regularly and does well. He ususally gets one about 20lbs every time he goes. I don't know of any other bank accesses though.

    Let us know how you do. If you can get them eels work really well as does gizzard shad if you can find them. Good luck!
