Successful fishing depends upon little things
By Tony Garitta
During the winter months, Capt. Butch Foster, formerly of Lexington and operator of Yeah Right Charters, occasionally departs from his Southport/Oak Island residence to return to Lexington to engage in his first love, crappie fishing at Flat Swamp in High Rock Lake.
Foster recently appeared at Greensboro’s Central Carolina Boat & Fishing Expo, where he gave daily seminars on winter crappie fishing at High Rock.
Collecting garbage: Locals work to beautify High Rock Lake during Clean Sweep

HIGH ROCK LAKE — Rocky Phillips held the white barrel steady as Barry Childers fired up his power saw and cut a chunk off the corner, allowing stale water to drain out to lighten the load.
In order to get to the barrel, which was lodged in a pile of sticks in shallow water on High Rock Lake, Phillips had to strip off his boots and socks and wade through a few feet of chilly water. After Childers sawed off the corner, he helped heave the barrel onto his pontoon boat, adding it to the pile of trash that was quickly piling up.
