SaltyAngler,

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.

I grew up fishing mostly saltwater in the state of Florda with very little freshwater. I moved to Knoxville in 2016 and have done very little fishing since moving up here. I currently live in Blount Co. and want to get back into fishing as I always found it to be a nice escape. With that said I am a shore fisher and have only cought a few small bluegills and about a 10lb catfish here in Tennessee.

 

I don't really have any knowledge of freshwater fishing outside of using some live bait. So I am looking for knowledge on fishing this area and some places around Blount County that I can fish from shore.

Welcome!  Salt water translates well into fresh, but the nuances will drive you to drink.  "Fresh" fish seem to be much less aggressive on the initial strike (there are exceptions) but all in all 'match the hatch" and you'll do fine.  It's all about being out there and enjoying the time on the water.

That is what I loved about saltwater fishing. I could take a couple dozen shrimp and I could catch anything from a pinfish to a snook all with out changing the bait or presentation. There have been times freshwater fishing that I have tried everything in the tacklebox and not even gotten the first bite.
