    Welcome aboard Earl. You'll find what you need with the BOC.

    Earl at that time of year, I think your best bet is to make a pit stop in Cumberlin City at the steam plant and spend the day to get bait. Be there at dawn and fish until dark if thats what it takes. Don't leave bait to chance. Also if it is in the budget I would recommend giving Mike Mitchell of Southerncats guide service a call. He knows those waters down there and a day or two out with him will sharpen he learning curve on the big water immensely. Good luck and I hope you get into some pigs down there.
