Setting a FLW Fantasy Fishing Lineup for Lake Norman

Lake Norman is the largest man made lake in North Carolina, it definitely seems to be a more of a numbers lake with both Largemouth & Spotted Bass.  Widely known as a dock lake, also has a fair amount of rock & wood.  Unlike Table Rock, most bass are likely to come fairly shallow.   It is similar in the respect there is not much for grass, like the first tournament on Lake Guntersville.

Type of water: lowland impoundment of Catawba River
Surface acres: 32,500 acres
Shoreline: 520 miles
Average depth: approximately 30 feet
Max depth: 110 feet
Primary structure/cover: docks, piers, pilings, grass, stumps, lay-downs, rocks
Species: largemouth, spotted bass
Length minimum: 14 inches for all species

All indications is that this tournament will again be a combination of spawn & post-spawn fish.  Shad spawn could play a roll as well for the top finishers.  If you look to my previous post about how BassFan.com identified some Lake Norman studs, they are likely to play a large role in my angling, team, and maybe a little local flavor.  BASS has fished Norman, but its been awhile, so I am skipping that research this time.

Remember Kim Bain suggested Brian Thrift & Alvin Shaw when I interviewed her….

Here are my other anglers to watch:
Brian Travis
Scott Cantebury
Jacob Powroznik

Basically I littered my lineup with anglers that are hot right now and have past experience and lots of wins & top 10’s this week.  I think Jim Moynagh is due for a big win!
