There are no open limits on spots in NC.

The limit for most lakes is 5 fish, 2 can be less than 14 inches.

I'd love to see no size limits on any spots though.

Spots aren't eating all the bass fry. They are out breeding (and breeding with) and out competing the smallies and largemouth.

Yep, there are. Santeetlah has no size limit and no creel limit for bass under 14 inches. Guess why?

Chatuge has no size limit on spots, and the creel limit is doubled to ten.

These have been enacted recently. I would expect more of the same in the future, maybe. In most of our lakes infested with spots, very few of them reach the 14-inch minimum size limit.

The regulations at Chatuge were changed to match the GA regulations were they not, nothing more or less?

No idea about Santeetlah. Sorry to hear its full of spots now.

Fontana is full of spots as well apparently.
