made it out to one of the backwater areas for about an hour. honestly, it was probably the only fishable spot we know of in the wilmington area. There were large numbers of minnows, looked like both shad and bass minnows, and the largemouth kept breaking the surface in pursuit.
It was actually kinda funny. We'd wait to see the small minnows break th surface as they tried to scurry away, drop our lure in the middle of the mayhem, and land one. We caught about 4-5 nice 14-16 inchers, all released.
