    Does the yadkin river hold any big cats? I live near lake hickory and fish it every weekend and biggest fish i catch is 7-10lb channel cats. I want to go somewhere close to catch some big cats around 20-30lb. I would rather fish a river than a lake. If i go to yadkin can i catch 20-30lb fish? any info around my area on place to catch big cats would be great. Rhodhiss and hickory doesn't have big blues or Flatheads. can catch 40 channel cats per trip but no size.

    if you are cathing 10 lb channels thats probably all you will get out of that spot because if there were any blues there you definitely would have caught more blues than channels, blues are territorial and would run the channels off

    I dont think there are many blues in lake hickory and there are no Flatheads. fish every part of the lake and never catch anything but bull heads and channels.
