Roanoke Rapids Lake near Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina
A Sexxy shad crankbait works well as well as jerk baits. The channel below the dam makes for run and gun fishing but you can catch some nice fish. Be careful east of the Thelma landing as it gets shallow quick outside of the main channel and you could bottom out.
