The fish will bite all year round, and they share the lake with other wildlife including eastern-box and soft-shell turtles, and black rat snakes. Take a trip from your Lake Norman vacation rental to Lake Norman State Park in the north, and you might see white-tailed deer, red and gray foxes, and opossums.
