    Travis, if I still lived in West Tennessee I would go with you in a heart beat. I have fished the Hatchie there at Pocahontas many many times and love fishing the Hatchie. I have always wanted to try there in Bolivar but never got the chance. Maybe when we are back over that way we can get together and give it a try.

    By the way, are you going to be able to make the Gathering at Pickwick next month? We would like to meet you and shake your hand buddy. Come on over and have a good time with all of us.

    Travis, we will keep your son and your family in our prayers. We hope you can make it to the gathering. You will really enjoy all the folks and fun. There will be some folks there that are from your area. Check out the Pickwick gathering in the gathering thread.

    Just when would you like to plan a fishing trip?
    I am about 20+ miles east of you east of Selmer.
    Been thinking about putting in off of Hwy 57 and fishing the Hatchie. Just don't know if my back can handle a all night trip or not. But would love to fish there.
    I fish the Tn river. Was at pickwick today catching skipjack for bait tomorrow .:big_smile:

    I live in Estern Arkansas and have a Tn License, would love to hook up sometime for some fishing. Usually I don't know about me weekends until the Friday before. I have a boat with trailer lights and boat lights for running at night.
    How far are you from Memphis.
