At 32,000-acres, Lake Norman is the largest man-made lake in North Carolina and boasts over 500 miles of shoreline. Anglers flock to Lake Norman year-round to try their hand at catching chunky spotted bass. Lake Norman with its many offshore points and humps, floating docks, and rocky clay banks offer anglers a multitude of ways to catch quality bass. While fishing at Lake Norman peaks in early Spring, the fish here bite year-round, so it’s important to know which baits work best for whenever you’re planning to visit. The scientists at Berkley have collaborated with local anglers and guides to create the ultimate guide to which baits work best and when. Now all you have to do is gear up and start casting!
