    Back in the 1960's whilst my family was staying at Fontana Village, that old ramp is where I went fishing. My dad hired one of their guides to take my sister and I Trout fishing. We fished with Wasp Larva. We floated the first half mile down from the powerhouse over and over. We got the most strikes in the first 100 yards or so. I bet I caught 40. We kept a few. Really, it was a little disappointing fishing. The fish were so small. This was long before oxygen injection systems. Trout didn't grow much in most tailwaters. I bet the largest one I caught was 11" and thin. At the time the only other Trout "fishing" my sister and I had done was at a Gatlinburg Trout farm. There the fish were big and robust. That was my measuring stick.

    Lowrance HDS Live

    Lowrance is costly compared to all the other overpriced fishing electronics that become old stuff compared to the yearly onslaught of new overpriced gear. That said Lowrence offers really top of the line electronics. I'd have to really be able to justify the higher cost of LiveSight plus the Live units. Doubt it would do much to help my fishing. But it would be fun.

    Lowrance HDS Live

    Not what I wanted to hear. Your 3rd hand data, is it more with the live unit itself, or the LiveSight transducer? The LiveSight is around an additional grand in addition to the HDS live units.

    Best Trolling Motor?

    MK - love the anchor mode. Love the remote control (blue tooth.) I can sit in the back of the boat and troll - too cool.

    Lowrance HDS Live

    Be careful, there is the Live which was introduced last October, and now the LiveSight which was introduced recently which looks to be the addition of a new transducer. Good online reviews, but I have heard otherwise third-hand from some users. I was looking at the Garmin LiveScope, but keep getting choked on the price.

    Staying at the village......your special. Old dirt road leaving the top of the village that comes down the other side of Cheoah is a way to get to the old boat ramp. If you have ever used that one you'll appreciate just about any other ramp you use. Maybe there will be a Porsche/mini/vw group staying there and driving the roads that weekend. On nice weather weekends its a rolling car show down the side of Cheoah. Everything looks good for tomorrow and getting some more time on the water. If I remember to get water temps I'll post them too. I'm with Scott, the bite will be fine. Shea

    Lowrance HDS Live

    Has anyone ponied up for the Lowrance HDS Live line of depth finders? I am currently running a Gen 2 model, so it will be an upgrade, just trying to find out if it is as good as the advertisements.
  16. Good deal. You could catch a drum everyday until you die on that stretch

    Correct. I normally get 2-3 washings out of the clothes before I need to re-apply.

  20. Hit the river in the project boat with a buddy for about 3 hours. Went from Island Home airport to about Holston Hills Park and drifted back, popping small jigs a little off the bottom. Caught a couple of smaller white bass (I think they were white bass, but I didn't check the tongue...just fun to catch) and a pretty good sized drum, which surprised me. I always seem to catch one of them in the spring. Overall, a fun night out.
  21. Just my 2 cents but I would think twice before I put a keg protector on it. Skeg is alot easier than a lower end to repair.
