WHAT DO YOU THINK THE BEST ALABAMA RIVER TO FISH IS:big_smile:
Thats too easy...Tennessee River hands down
got to agree Tennessee,,, caught 140lbs of channels sunday between 4 of us fishing
as much as i would love to say the alabama river, i have fished the tenn. and it is phenominal.
I've only fished the Alabama and Coosa. But from everything I've read Tennessee is tops.
I say the TN!! But Coosa is really good also!!
Guys I have catfished alot of different places, lots of different states. Of all the places, be it the Santee to the James River and beyond, the absolute best fishing for Blue cats is from Knoxville Tn to Sheffield Al. Lake or River. The only exception, and I mean the only exception is the Mississippi River at times. Remember the floods, snow melts, heavy barge traffic, huge debris, turbulent waters, slack waters, draughts, heavy boat traffic, commerical fishing, gill netting, strong currents, and PIRATES. If you can get around all that, then yea the Big Muddy might be better. I really hate those Pirates.
The TN is hard to beat in Bama, especially for blues. The Coosa/Bama/Tallapoosa could be in the running for best flathead. The thing about the TN is that it contains so much bait and really not that much pressure (west side). If you can't catch bream anytime anywhere on the TN - try adding some bait on your hook - if you can't catch skipjack on the TN try to cast in the water. I'd put money on a world record blue coming out of the TN a few years back, crazy it didn't or hasn't happened yet.
the ten. river is the best for me, awsome blues

I remember when this one was caught. it just didn't last long before being topped.
The Tenn. is certainly the best but lets not forget the tombigbee, an often overlooked prime catfishery
I've only fished the Tennessee so I guess that I'd say the Tennessee.
I caught alot of big blues out of the Tenn River.
