SpareTime,

Welcome to Tennessee Anglers. We would appreciate it it you'd post a reply below telling us about yourself. An introduction of sorts. Maybe answer some questions like: Where do you fish? What do you fish for? What area are you located? How did you find us? If you soon find yourself wondering why you can't find the fishing reports or maybe why you can't post in the classifieds, it's because you need to make 10 posts or replies first. This is something our members voted on. It helps foster lively discussion while at the same time it cuts back on spammers and one post (boat for sale) wonders. Finally, don't be afraid to click those buttons up top. Even though most of the action here is in our forums, there are a lot of cool features and great people here. Please feel free to browse around and get to know others. And if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Don't forget to start your own album in our gallery too.

Thanks for joining.

The screen name implies when I get to go fishing. Too bad I don't have a whole lot of it. I've lived in Maryville for about 5 years now. I was born and raised in the piedmont of NC, just west of Winston Salem. I grew up in the sticks, fishing the Dutchmans Creek, and a small watershed lake with some of my good friends. We were typically going for catfish, but we caught yellow perch, crappie, bass, carp, and bluegill. Yearly trips to the NC coast pier and shore fishing were always fun as well. Throw in the occasional trip to the carp pond and you have my early childhood in a nut shell. I discovered trout fishing while in college at Western Carolina University. I fished the Tuckasegee River pretty heavy around campus. I even caught a couple trout in Cullowhee Creek right in the middle of campus. Camping and fishing for native brookies in Panthertown Valley was and still is one of my favorites.

 

I now find myself surrounded by unfamiliar water just calling my name. I purchased an OLD pontoon a few years back, and it's been a work in progress. I'm hopefully getting it on the water soon to start learning some of the water here in east TN. I'll catch whatever bites, but I'm really looking forward to going after some of the trout in Chilhowee and the upper end of Tellico. Going after cats at some point should be fun, and I wanna try some walleye. I hear they taste great. I'm sure i'll be hitting some of you up for your extensive knowledge. Thanks in advance!

Thanks! I caught a hand full of keeper crappie a few weeks back on tellico, in the notchy creek area. I got to go with my neighbor. My first east TN fish was about a 13 white crappie.
