    Ok all your TN cat fishers. Time for all of us to check in and tell everyone where your from and fish.

    I am Andrew. Live in Woodlawn TN. I fish the cumberland river mostly, but do drag myself to Barkley once or twice a year. I will be visiting the TN river when I get back. Gotta try it, atleast once. I love striper fishing as well as cat fishing. Good luck out there.

    My name is John. My passion, started about 20 yrs ago , is for large cats and just recently stripers. I live in Mt Juliet and I am a native to Hermitage / Mt Juliet Tn area. I fish both Priest and Old Hick. Mainly OH because I live not 5 min from the boat ramp. Steam Plant area and schutes branch are my put in spots. Hope to get a decent cat soon for my avitar pic instead of that Striper.

    I grew up in Anderson County, TN, but moved to Morgan County about 1972. Usually I fish the Little Emory, Big Emory, and Clinch River sections of Watts Bar Lake and parts of Melton Hill Lake. Also have access to a couple of ponds. One contains channel catfish, but unfortunately poachers have taken a huge dent of them out. A friend of mine hooked and landed a 34" grass carp out of there today and it weighed 20 1/2 pounds. Many of my friends have had some of their favorite fishing holes pretty much ruined by TVA, the Kingston Steam Plant spill. They still won't let you in there.

    Well I'm Mark and live in Chattanooga. I fish mostly on Chicamauga lake, but sometimes venture below the Chic dam and fish Nickajack lake. We here in Tennessee are blessed with some of the most productive lakes, creeks, and rivers. I'm blessed that I have two great lakes to choose from withing 10 minutes of my house. This is also a beautiful place to spend time on the lakes just cruising around checking out the scenery which I do quite often with my wife.

    Hey everyone, im Scott. I live in Clarksville, TN. I usually fish the Cumberland River, especially out by the steam plant. Havent had a chance to get the boat out to much lately due to being in Iraq. I will be home the first part of September so if anyone wants to tag along give me a holler. Its always fun taking someone out who doesnt get to go out on a boat normally. Im your typical redneck, hunting, fishing, and racing. When im home im also the tech official at Clarksville Speedway for the circle track.
