Carping Near Charlotte NC

0 posts in this topic

I'll be visiting Charlotte for a few days in October and might have a few hours to toss a hook in the water.   Suggestions on where to go would be appreciated.  A quick look at google maps shows the river west of Charlotte  (is that the Catawba?)  looks promising.  I see a boat ramp at highway 74  on the west bank that is very accessible and might be a possibility,  though I doubt that it is a public ramp and I don't know about parking there.

Went to Charlotte. Fished the Catawba river one morning. Got a 16 pounder. My guess is that this is a grass carp. I have not caught one before. Is that what it is?

Picture attached.
