I am the new owner of a 19 foot center console I have never owned a boat before but have been out on several but not to badin. I am looking to get back behind the tucker town dam to catch some big cats or stripers. I was wondering how hard it is to navigate up there not looking to tear my boat up. was also wondering if anyone wants to share some good spots to catch bait with a cast net and good spots for cats or stripers.

Haven't been up there that far, but I do have a fiberglass CC boat about that size, and I'd go slowly and on the trolling motor if I were to try to get up into an area with rocks.

Wish I could help you, but I have struggled the last couple trips there myself. Last year we did ok hopping worms down steep rock banks (get hung and wedged in the rocks some but that's just fishing). If you head south out of the Shoreline Drive put-in, the islands and shorelines you come to sort of near the mouth of Gladys Fork have some steep rock drops that have produced fish.

Other than that, I think if you don't mind flipping a ton of them, flipping docks can pay off when the sun is up and the fish are under the docks in the shade. I'm not great at picking the "right" docks, so I'm not a good resource but the closer they are to deep water and the deeper water under them I would think are good things to look for.
