Considering relocating to western NC. What lakes are good and what should I avoid. How long is the typical season?

Any and all info appreciated.

I'm currently in Michigan so our season is pretty short.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Ah,a fellow wolverine.....
I moved to NC in the spring of '83 from Royal Oak Mi (9 mile and Dequindre, (Hazel Park, actually)) and wouldn't go back fer nuttin.
Currently live in Hickory and boat in Lake Hickory. Have been to Lake Norman (big water), Lake James (cool water), Center Hill (TN)( a great time was had by all), Dale Hollow (TN) (another not too far away). There's a few east of where I am but gots no comment, cuz never been there.
Machinist by trade.
Good opportunities, season runs from late March to middle / end October.
C'mon down...the water's fine
