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.
