The Sportsman Store

NCS June 2012 Digital Edition

COVER
If there's a better month than June to fish across North Carolina, another page will have to be added to the calendar. North Carolina Sportsman takes you to some of the state's top reservoirs -- High Rock, Randleman and Kerr among them -- for bass, crappie, catfish and striped bass action. Along the coast, it's a great month to catch cobia along the Outer Banks, flounder around Bogue Inlet, tripletails in the Cape Fear River and tilefish in the deep blue ocean. North Carolina sportsman takes you to all of these places.
