Charlie Taylor's Buggs Island Fishing Report

Crappie fishing in Kerr Lake is excellent, with the tasty fish being found in 3-8 feet of water. Bass anglers are finding some fish along the banks with crankbaits.

Shallow humps in the lake, adjacent to deep water, are producing good catches of bass, on Silver Buddies and deep-diving crankbaits. Carolina rigged baits are also taking some bass.

Please use the utmost caution when boating on our state's waters this week. The outdoor temperatures are cold, and the water is cold enough to cause hypothermia and possible death. Special note: WEAR your life jacket. It can save your life. It won't do anyone any good in a compartment. At the very worst, it will at least allow law enforcement to find your body more quickly.
