    I will be home soon. Just curious if anyone was having luck at the steamplant. Are the Skips starting to move in there yet.

    How are conditions on the Cumberland river. Anybody catching any cold weather blues???

    Skips are picking up at the steam plant. Caught 56 on Thursday. Also caught several small cats and a 26 pound blue. Should just get better in the next few weeks.

    Its good to hear success guys. Keep it up. Ive been fishing the steamplant area for skips with no luck. Are you guys fishing the discharge side of c.c. or the intake. Or both? Wondering if its the warm water they like.

    The skipjack are in there pretty thick, caught a 100 of them a week ago. Was down there this last sunday morning with my kid, seen some small catfish caught and some good size striper, as for me lost something big. I plan on being down there early mornings for thursday and saturday, if not more.

    Well, I just got back from the steam plants. The skips are running very good. I caught 48 in less then two hours. I was shocked that there wasn't more people fishing being how nice it was outside. But their were some people there. A couple strippers were caught and some cats less then ten pds. I primary fished about 20feet from the catwalk down on the rocks. I had a blast using light tackle catching them. So go catch them and hope to see any of you down there again this weekend. I will be back their on sunday.

    Chris I went Friday for few and caught some but didnt stay long. The place was packed full of people one every 10 feet. I'm thinking of going back one day this week. Some people looked like they was doing good and seen some rock fish caught.
