I know this is NC angler and I was scolded one time for writing about out of state fishing. But I have to mention the Striper fishing I have been doing below Cordell Hull dam on the Cumberland River TN. If you can, GO! I believe it is the best fishing in the country right now. Better than anything. I can’t think of anywhere else you can catch fish from 30# up to 60# ponds. 60# is rare but realistic. 50# happens regular. The smallest fish I have caught this year on this water is 32#. The fishing is slowing for this year, but next spring, hang on. I will be there! Anyway I want go on. As I said. I know its NC Angler and I get that, I do live in WNC. I just wanted to pass this amazing Fishery along to anyone looking for an awesome adventure. Last word, Skipjack!
