    Hey Jamie
    I was there tuesday and we cleaned caught quite a good bunch early in the morning.But it seemed after 11 am they begin to slow up a bit but still there were skips in there.

    The time of week is week days there isnt as many there as week ends.
    But for the skips they were there yesterday
    have fun

    Im not sure what they are called, but Ive caught several of those small gar looking fish in there. Looks something like a cross between a small gar and a eel.

    I believe that they are a Atlantic Needlefish. Which the last time I looked on a map cumberland city was a little ways from the atlantic.
