are those giant mrkong catfish or something else? Also if you want to catch a big catfish here in the states your best bet is the middle of winter. I catfish hear in tn on a regular basis and the best time for a trophy cat seems to be between christmas and valentines day.Damn I thought those fishies were only on a Simpsons episode.
Hit the harpeth off Arno road south of franklin. Decent trout as of late broI live in middle tn and was planning a trip to go fishing this weekend and was wondering if anybody else in the area has been lately and if so how did you do and what species did u go after?
ali what fish are you going 4? I might be able to help out.. esp if fresh waternot much love in the fishing thread...
so i generally fly fish - wet flies and nymphs mostly. i'm hoping to get out backpacking a little more this summer and want to get a spinning set up. thinking pretty light - maybe a 5' - 5'6" rod and a reel capable of ~100yds or 2lb or 4lb test.
as far as i can tell, reels by shimano and abu garcia seem to be pretty good in terms of quality but i also see reels by companies i have never heard of like pfleuger. my reel search has homed in on this:
shimano sedona 2500fe
anybody have any experience of shimano spinning reels? any other recommendations (for reels or rods)?
that sounds like a great setup - especially the reel - but i think i'm looking to spend a little less than $300 on my set upFor speckled trout and gray trout around here (coast of NC) I use a quantum smoke inshore 2500 reel on Star Seagus 4-8 lb class rod. Super light weight and easy to cast all day
