My name is Keith, 64 yrs young, been fishin seriously for 52 yrs. I guide for crappie on Buggs Island Lake and walleye at Philpott lake. I get to fish 250-300 days a yr. My favorite fishing is for LMB cause they the hardest for me to catch! I've fished a lot for stripers on SML an Buggs. Catfish on Buggs some also. do some whiteperch fishing there when I want some to eat. I like to flyrod fish for brim when they on the beds. so many fish, so little time...

I gave up on Nutbush bridge when people started getting stupid. I got showered with broken glass when some drunks tossed a big beer bottle (I assume at me) as they sped across the bridge about 4 am one weekend.

Welcome Keith. Glad you joined us.

I spent a lot of time at Nutbush. Most of it was several years back when I was water skiing, but got into fishing there later.
I have heard things hit that bridge when I was close enough to it that had to have come from passing vehicles.

On a funny note I've also seen some interesting casting accidents with passing motorists on Nutbush. A guy with a surf rod swung back to cast as a bigrig came by. Truck grabbed the rig which I guess was wrapped or just the speed and it snapped the rod in half. Trucker stopped with a 2 hook rig and 1/2 a rod wrapped up in his mirror.

I would think that there would be a lot of things to happen on that bridge. By the way, not sure if it still happens, but the water level has gotten high enough to go over the top of that bridge, and boat had to cross over it.

I also guide for cats, if anyone is interested. I fish all over the lake but some of the best cattin is on the upper end where the rivers come in. But my two biggest, a 50 an a 61 pounder came from within site of the dam. both of these were caught in the winter. seems the biggest ones bite better when the waters cold. we caught 15 blue cats last wk trollin a 3 way rig rite belo the bridges at Clarksville. them blues slam a plug harder than any fish I've caught!
