    Hey guys, I'll be moving to Tennessee in the next couple of months. Millington area in fact. Can any one let me know where some good spots are to fish? Lakes and rivers. Also, let me know what baits are used. I would appreciate any help you can give. Maybe even hook-up and fish with a few of you guys. Thanks in advance.

    Well, welcome to our state in advance :smile2: If you're looking for a new world record catfish you're in the right vicinity. Just head down to that big river down the road there :big_smile: One other place I've always heard big things about but is way to far of a drive for me is Reelfoot lake. Oh man I'd like to fish there some time. Do a google map search and just pan around the Millington area. Reelfoot is to the north and.... you prolly know where the big river is :wink:

    Have any of you fished Glen Springs lake? It's about 10 north of Millington. Is it any good?

    What kind of fishing you looking to do? They catch some decent bream at Glen Springs and I hear they catch some catfish on jugs as well. I have been twice trying to bass fish and way to clear and too much moss for me to do any good. All of us local MS River diehards pretty much post under the State of MS World Class Catfishing Thread. Take a look there if you catfish and you will see you are moving to the right place for good ole bigguns:wink: I live about 15 miles north of Millington in the metropolis of Brighton

    Welcome to TN and the Midsouth Kelly. I live about 15 minutes from Millington in Bartlett. Both are pretty much suburbs of Memphis.
    Roger is right about this place, we have the biggest river in america right in our backyard. We also have lakes like Arkabutla, Sardis and Enid which are in Mississippi that are about and Hour or so south of Millington. And you got Reelfoot which is about an hour and a half or so North. All of which offer good fishing for pretty much any species you like. I personally don't care much for Glenn Springs, like ole roger said it is filled with moss. It is known to have produced good fish but I have unfortunately never done any good there. Hope this helps! :wink:

    welcome to Tennessee. I don't know about the places they mentioned toward the Mississippi and Reel foot but anywhere up and down the Tennessee where I 40 crosses or just about aanywhere from Pickwick to Johnsonville should pay off.I fish around Old J-ville

    Kelly,
    You are in a great area of all types of fishing. If you are looking for crappie go hour south to sardis or grenada lakes. These two lakes produce some of the best crappie fishing in the u.s. If you are looking to land the 50-60 pound cat, you have the best river in your backyard. The Mississippi river is the best catfish waters around to me. fish around the wing dikes or cuts in the banks. I am from Southeast Missouri and I fish the mississippi up in this area, however, the river is the same down your way.

    I live and fish on the other end of the state near Chattanooga so I can't help with any spots but welcome to Tennessee, I know you're going to like it.
