    Hi all,

    I might get a chance to spend some time in the Murray, Ky area this spring/summer & I was wondering what the bank fishing is like in the area. I don't have a boat.

    Thanks for any help:)

    You are in luck. It is not far at all to cumberland city, tn and the steam plant there is an excellent place to catch skipjack and shad from the bank. One good day fishing here will get you enough bait for the year.

    There are plenty of that size and bigger. Come on down and catch a few. If I remember right we've caught and released about 25 flatheads over 40lbs, and at least that many in the 20-40lb range.
