    Default Harris - The Dead Sea

    Went last Monday and Today, marked plenty of fish, nothing biting. What's up with that lake lately, might have to make the drive to Jordan.

    I went last week fishing main lake points and only caught them in 19 FOW on the bottom. Caught a bunch of small ones and five around 1.5 lbs all on minnows. Threw them all back to keep getting bigger.

    Freddie has been saying for months that it is overfished. Haven't been on it since last Spring, but there is a tournament the 2nd Saturday in January.

    Over fished, no limit, no size limit, they killed the grass that the fry hide and feed in. Match that with lots of predator fish and you have a map to destruction. White perch are another problem. They forage on the crappie eggs and the fry up to about 2" long.
    Yes Jordan has the same predators but it is a very different lake. The limits that are put on the fish are not to write tickets to the law abiding fishermen but they give the people a guide to go by. The NCWRC is not always right but I think they try. The limits put on Jordan have given us much better quality fish. I would like to see something done about Harris and get the NCWRC more involved. I think Duke Energy Progress or whoever owns it now needs to make electricity and let the NCWRC handle the wildlife.

    Very well stated--unlimited limits and what I think is especially important, they killed the grass and lily pads.

    I was wondering what happened to Lily-pads. When. I went to Harris in Aug. First time in about 5 yrs. there is this 1 long point I'd bass fish and always had good fishing and could boat 5-10 fish every time. I could read that point because the way Lily-pads grew. In Aug. I could find point with depth finder but no Lily-pads and no fish.

    Strange about spending $ to eliminate cover...what is the reason? Limit?...who would enforce the limit? Power plant security?
    I wasn't born here, but I got here as fast as I could

    They got rid of the hydrilla because it was invasive, but the lily pads went too not sure why. NC wildlife has started trying to get native water plants established, you can see their efforts in the back of some coves. Hope it works because the hydrilla was mad fun to fish.
