Hello all, new member here and also recently moved to Charlotte, NC for work. Most of my fishing tackle is still back home with my boat in MI, but I do have a few necessities. I was hoping someone could help me out finding somewhere to wet a line. I am staying in the uptown Charlotte area and would just like somewhere to fish from the bank. Thanks for any input.

I can personally vouch for fishing the shore at Lake Norman. There is a park down near the South Carolina/North Carolina border that has over a mile worth of fishable shore fine.

It's great for cat fshing as well, but it was where I learned how to properly fish a crankbait before I moved back to Florida due to the rocky bottom of Lake Norman.

From Charlotte your best areas may be Latta Plantation, Mountain Is. Lake. A lot of hiking trails to access shallow to deep water. Off Beatties Ford Rd. north of Charlotte. The other areas would be on Lake Wylie; south of Charlotte. Copperhead Landing has pier area; and McDowell Park has good deeper water areas with rip-rap
that is good for a shaky head jig. Both are located off Hwy. 49south below Carrowinds Admusment Park. From The Charlotte Square about the same distance to all. Closer than Norman. Mt. Island is used a lot by kayak fishermen also. For Norman you would about have to go to Lake Norman State Park for good access. Long drive. The "Hot Hole" is great fishing I just don't know how to tell you how to access the area.
