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.
