I have had decent luck with the walleye in the spring in Gaston. I live in Halifax county on the Mecklenburg line and fish mainly buggs but hit gaston quite often for a change of pace. I have caught right many walleye up there in the spring. I spend most of my time way up on gaston though behind the dam. Have caught them in the throw net two or three at a time before (let them go!) With rod and reel have caught them on live alewifes, jerk baits, and some soft plastics fishing for bass and stripers. The striper fishing is awesome back there in the late spring early summer. Cant beat it with a stick. Can cast artificials or fish live shad under corks and so forth and catch plenty. While doing so, can catch blue cats, gar, and nice bass too. Its a fun place to fish that time of year. Oh by the way, Gaston is loaded with yellow perch, and they are of considerable size. Didnt want to let that secret out but they are there by the thousands!
