If you’re looking for a great fishing spot near Wilmington, North Carolina, check out Lake Sutton. You can catch many species of fish here, including largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, redear sunfish, and invasive flathead catfish. The waters in this lake tend to be warmer than usual thanks to a nearby electric plant that discharges hot water into it. These warmer waters create the perfect breeding and feeding grounds for bass. You can either fish from the lake’s 40 miles of shoreline, or head out on Lake Sutton by boat.
