    Watauga Trout

    I don't see this as thread hijacking. I love to read anything about fishing. The thing I like is to know I am not the only one that gets hung up at times. The wildlife officer pulled up beside me on Watauga to do a survey; while we were talking I got three rods hung. If you don't watch you depth finder at all times, you can get into a mess fast. The good thing was that he was very nice and must have felt bad for me, he told me where to go if I wanted to catch some rainbows. I moved there and had four in an about 1 1/2 hours.

    I have never been on Dale Hollow, but, 15 rainbow by noon sounds interesting.

    Watauga Trout

    I think I will give SH a try next. I have fished it for trout a lot more than Watauga and had very good luck in the past. I will be back to Watauga in the next couple of weeks for sure. Watauga is a 1hr drive from home and SH is about a 2hr drive; so I need to learn more about Watauga for trout. Maybe I will see you on the water next time.

    Watauga Trout

    Made a short trip to Watauga Friday for trout. First time trout fishing in a long time. I have been striper fishing mostly for the last few years. It may take me some time to get back into the swing of this type of fishing. I did get one nice lake trout and four rainbows. It was a fun trip and will give it another try before long.

    Fishing the Trout lakes 2019

    I have not been trout fishing in a few years, but, after seeing your pictures I may have to give it a try. Watauga is a short drive for me and I have caught several trout there in the past. This will be a trip for me to take very soon I think. Thanks for sharing your pictures for all to enjoy.

    Back to fishing again

    Thanks for the congratulations. I can get back to what I love now, fishing with friends.
  9. I had to pretty much stop fishing four years ago to go back to school for my job. I graduated this spring and now ready to get back to fishing. I fished Cherokee for striper quite often before I had to go back to school. I was just wondering how the striper fishing is now on Cherokee. There hasn't been a die off or anything I hope. Have the fish started back down toward the dam yet. Going to make a trip down in the next couple of weeks and was just wondering where to start looking for the fish.

    Cast net

    Thanks for all the help. I have a 8ft #cn29 net from Memphis net but have never used it in deep water. I will let him try it . If it works for him I can order him a new one. The net he had was a 8ft 1.5lb per foot and he could throw it very good.

    Cast net

    Have a friend that needs a new cast net. He is a older man and will not order one he wants to see it in person before he pays for one. So is there any place that sales cast nets close to Asheville or a few hours drive from there. He is looking for a net to use in deep water at night under light and wants it to be a 8 or 20 ft and at least 1lb per ft.:confused:

    What depth finder do you have?

    I think that the best fish finder may be friends on the water. The more boats looking the better chance you will have finding.With all the years of experience fishing these lakes that Ezel and some others have they know where to look for that time of year.Most of us like to fish around friends it just makes it a lot more fun.

    What depth finder do you have?

    There was a video on you tube where a man had one that he was going about 20mph and he found a school of stripers on it but it look as good as mine at about 5 mph. I have tried it after l watched it on YouTube but not even close to his screen at that speed. That would save lots of time if could use it at that speed.

    Where to fish

    I may have to try there if no eyes try for stripers
