    Anyone ever fish Lake Norfork? I heard somewhere that it had the potential for huge cats because it's so hard to fish. I've also heard (I think these tales are common) of big fish right up next to the dam where the Norfork River starts. I fished it my whole life, and just wanting to know if any other BOC Brothers and Sisters had tried it.

    i've fished the lake some and never caught any big ones, but their there. i seen some 60 pounders come from it. most of them were caught on jugs. i agree with corter, it has not been as good as a few years back, but it still pretty good fishing. it'll be back.
