    Wish me luck friends, We are leaving for Tennessee early Thur.
    It will be my first trip to the Tn. river and I'm pumped. I had to make myself stop packing things tonight. Looks like I have enough to stay for a month. LOL Hope to have info and pics latter.
    Good Luck to everyone and have a Happy Easter,

    Shoot theres no big fish here. LOL Best of luck theres plenty of water now. And in 2 weeks the fishing here below pickwick is out of this world. I have days where 50 fish is a bad day.:wink: Fish 3 hours and catch 40 to 50 fish. I love it.

    Got back this evening from my trip to Tn. I had a good time in spite of the weather. Our best night was our first night (Thur.) after that it went down hill. Fri we had Tornado's to the north and south of us, high wind,heavy rain and some fairly large hail. Windy fishing and dropping temps for the next 24 hrs. Sat. afternoon and evening was beautiful, but after the storm passed and they cranked the water flow down the bite we were on almost stopped completely. All in all we caught around 25 fish total, six of them were between 30-40 pounds and 43 being big fish.
    I did catch my new personal best Drum! I didn't weight him, but he was a Big Old Boy. All fish were photographed and released and I will try to put up some pics. All the fish were big thick and healthy, including a few channel cat. High light of the trip for me was the Skip jack fishing. My first time yanking and cranking the Tennessee Tarpon and I was like a 10 year old Kidd. LOL:smile2: It was a blast being on new water and getting to watch the Barges Lock through the Dam.
