Badin Lake Fishing Reports

Recently shared catches and fishing spots

  1. Badin Lake Catfish report. Boat in the water at Old Whitney at 0630, Shad appear scattered, threw cast net for two hours with no result. However White Bass/Perch ...more were hitting Sabiki rigs, three at a time in the channel on the dam side of the railroad trestle.

    Anchored we only caught one small catfish, however the wind picked up at 1100 enough to drift cutbait. Starting from the railroad trestle and drifting towards the dam we caught 11 fish between 5-10 lbs on the first drift in 13-20ft. The second drift was similar.

    On the third drift late in the afternoon the bite changed, with most bites on the drop off in 22-28 ft, landed 2 15lb + fish and had one fish break new 40lb mono in the rod holder (not the leader) on a huge strike. Also had a potential Striper strike on a suspended live bait, but it came unbuttoned quickly.

  2. Decent night at Badin

    1 lb. 12.0 in. Black Crappie with a minnows

  3. 15 in (3 to 4 pounds) Very nice large mouth bass

    4 lb. 15 in. Largemouth Bass with a Blue Fox Flash Spinners

  4. This is actually my wifes catch. Thia was our first time fishing Baden Lake. We have caught large cats on the Neuse river west of New Bern in past years. Its been ...more ten years since we fished. We recently moved to Mount Gilead in January 2020. My wifes theory is if youre going to catch fish you have to dress nice with matching clothes, fix your hair and present yourself pretty to the fish and use your lucky fishing rod. It must work because she consistently catches fish. 😆
