    Has anyone fished this river? I walk out my back door and can be fishing in 5 mins on it. I put some lines out tied to tree I used nylon line with a 18inch steel leader It is only 25lb test But i lost 4 leaders and all something broke it. So was wondering if anyone got any good size cats out of that water yet

    I don't even know where that river is but, if you been losing line and leaders like that, I'd be hitting that place hard every day and night until I found out what monster was breaking my line.:smile2:

    Yeah thats not far from me..Somewhere around 80 miles north east of Nashville..Couldn't really find much info on this river..Supposedly it is best known for large and smallmouth bass but it also has cats..The info is very limited on the web..

    I would venture to say as cold as that water stays over in that area he got onto some muskies or big striper's
