    Fishing anyone??

    I eat fish at least once a week. The striped bass are not going back good right now so only catch a limit then quit for the day. The striper are great table fair any way they are fixed. They are a firm, white, meat that holds together good for grill, blacking, baking or as Bubba Gump would say many other ways.

    Fishing anyone??

    I fish about 5 days a week mostly Norris & Cherokee for stripers although most days catch about as many smallmouths. Other fish often caught are cat fish, walleye, crappie, & drum. I am a live bait guy so feed them not fool them.

    Mammoth Cave?

    A 3 day license should be easy to get with a S.S. # at tnwildlife.org $20.50 for a type (077) no trout out of state, or a one day in state type (021) as low as $6.50
  5. Very happy with my Navionics. Lakemaster is good but does not have Norris Lake.
  6. I have found just what you need. 40 gal. Super bait Vest, 3 cast nets, planner boards, extra filter , salt, 1000 gpa filler pump. Great deal $. Call Bill 865-291-7944 Knoxville area.

    Fishing License

    Some good discussion points. Tennessee has a lot to offer as a look at the Out-Of-State license shows. Of course the recommended place to share your opinions / suggestions for results is at the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commissioners meetings. > My personal comments is no issues with current methods. The March 1st renew is good because it is end of hunt season and begin of fish for most if there is a begin & end. ( I fish is all year) I have a senior license that is permanent after age 65.

    Giving it a shot today

    Anytime would love to be in the boat with you Ken. I also got out today and caught some pretty hybrids. Harvested a couple to eat.
  14. You may want to add to the bucket a fishing experience on Cherokee Lake for Striped bass, Hybrids, & smallmouth.
  15. Always wandered what was wrong with you dada, now know. LOL Just kidding. I would not eat any large fish that can be old as they collect & add toxins each year especially below Norris & Melton dams down into the Tennessee river at Kingston.. Would also limit fish consumption to those fish that are not very migratory throughout the tailrace & river system that could have consumed bait from radioactive areas like Popular Creek. The trout & crappie are likely clean, with maybe the walleye & Yellow perch. The migration back upstream from the highest contaminated areas below Melton dam is not as likely as when the Lock was opened much more often in years past. I was one of the boats that helped again for the 6th year TWRA & Oak Ridge National Lab collect fish for their annual contamination study Feb. 5th 2018. I do get their (TEDEC) reports of finding from Norris Lake & Kingston Steam Plant. I do believe they numbers are actual. I do not need to eat fish from there. Sure is a long response.
