    Welcome Jeremy to the BOC. There is some really great catfishing around FT Bragg. There are 3-4 catfish ponds on FT Bragg, that hold some pretty good catfish. Catch small blue gill and use as cut bait at night in the ponds and you can catch 10-20lb cats all night on a good night. The Cape Fear is a really good place for Blues and Flats. There are some really big flatties in the river. It is a small river but do not think it does not hold some big fish, fish the sides between the stands of timber in the 15-20ft holes. If you are in the military and you do not have a boat you can rent them on ft Bragg. The ponds on Ft Bragg are shore fishing only and watch out for the Cotton mouths at night they are around.

    Cape fear holds some of the best cats in the state. Plus you can hit the salt easily and chase lots of other goodies too!!
