  1. My cheapo cast net is a Betts No-Spook 10' in 3/8 mesh. If you are new to cast netting, I would probably start with a 6' and work up from there. And, yes, I have several in various lakes that are now permanent fixtures. I have figured out if you order them in pairs, the shipping cost is the same.
  2. At about 1:36, you can see someone come out of the dam house and watch. I thought they were working on taking all the low water dams out of the river systems?

    Fishing License

    I like the idea of pro-rating it out per day. I normally get a sportsman's license, but it jumped up quite a bit in price last year, and I haven't hunted in many years. So, I jumped on the $59 all species fishing license with a $5.00 hard card for this year. I'm kind of in the same boat on an annual license lasting one year from the date of purchase. I saltwater fish quite a bit in Florida, and last year in Louisiana. The year long license has helped me quite a bit in those state.

    Giving it a shot today

    I was just happy to be out on a beautiful day. Never been fishing in East Tennessee on Feb 22 in shorts and a short sleeved shirt. Boat ran, everything worked. Mounted a new Riptide Ulterra that worked great. When I got hurt, I had a tank of bait to go fishing the next day. Had to get Trey to dump it for me. All in all, a good day.

    Yep, appoint Ezell as my guardian fisherman. Survived. Slow but one 19 pound striper!!! Beats a poke in the eye with a sharp stick!
  7. Sneaking off this afternoon to see how it goes. I'm walking on a cane, so this may not be so good. River is running and supposedly some stripers have been spotted. Will let you know what happens.

    What do you fish for mostly?

    Got to migrate to a walking cane this week. Getting there, but still slow. And, being that my immune system is shot, managed to get shingles. BUT, I'm on the green side of the grass, new Minn Kota 112 Riptide Ulterra for the boat, few new parts and pieces, and I should be ready to go in a couple of weeks.

    Anything that pulls, but in this order, Stripers/hybrids, trout, smallmouth bass on live bait, trout in the river, largemouth/smallmouth on artificial aka bassmaster style.

    Talked to a buddy duck hunting below Patrick Henry. Said the river was saturated with dead and dying threadfin.
