  1. 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.
  2. Clinch & Powell River in feed to Norris. The Holston in feed to Cherokee. These are natural rivers with no upstream dams so quickly change with the rain to muddy. Last year the Clinch & Powell had one of the best walleye runs for 20 + years but heard few talking about it..
  3. Looks like a delay because of the rivers coming down muddy. Good thing is the muddy color will warm the water quicker.
  4. Fishing last weekend

    I have heard that you can spray the line with silicone or put a thin hint of Vaseline. I was dipping my rod in the water to reel them in. .
  5. Yes call before 9pm.
  6. There is a decent run to the Clinch & Powell rivers that begins in Feb. & continues thru May but everyone has a closed mouth about them. The uppermost part of Cherokee Lake also has a great run of Walleye & mostly (Saugeye. Sauger/Walleye hybrid) that begins this month.
  7. Just a useless knife review

    Yes welcome back Cannonball. I use a Rapala & just keep it sharp with a quick swipe of a Smith sharpener for the large fish I catch. I am also very efficient with a electric knife on pan fish @ about 2 per minute.
  8. I also tried two time to stop by so guess we will just have to meet on the water.
  9. Just a useless knife review

    I put together my 9 lure rigs. I have friends in Ohio that make the Tennessee legal A-rigs for me. The only time I use them U-rigs is cold weather months.
