Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, black crappie, bluegill and pumpkinseed sunfish at Lake Phelps in North Carolina.
Phelps Lake, NC

This big, shallow lake near the North Carolina coastline can be a haven for bass, crappie and sunfish enthusiasts. Phelps Lake is a 16,600-acre lake, two miles south of Creswell, NC. The lake is a big bowl with little shoreline contour. Virtually all the banks have submerged trees and vegetation, and there are boats docks scattered around the lake. There are boat launch ramps for public use - one paved ramp for bigger boats, and many places around the lake to launch canoes or kayaks. Boaters should be cautious due to the shallowness of the majority of the lake.
