I carried my 11 year old with me yesterday morning to try to give him a good workout. TVA only generated for one hour yesterday morning.
We arrived about 45 minutes before they started generating and found bait (yellowtails) next to the dam with a cast net. As soon as the water started to flow the action was fast and furious. I didn't keep count of our fish but we managed at least a dozen ... probably 15 fish in 60 minutes. We only had one big striper at about 11 1/2 pounds, a really big drum, and the rest were hybrids and stripers that ranged from 2-9 pounds, which were small compared to my last trip there. My son got a pretty good workout but I'm sure he could have handled another hour or so, if TVA would have kept the water moving. He still had a big grin on his face when he went to bed last night.
