Just for those of you who still fish this area from the bank...

One pump was started yesterday with the gate open behind the railroad tracks but not across the highway. Today, they opened the gate across the highway as well and turned on the other pump. Although there were some nice shellcracker caught, they were VERY few. Warmer temps and time may bring in the bass and stripe along with some bream. It is sad that this area is only a shadow of its former self concerning fishing.

With the killing of the millfoil on the east side of the Hwy31 causeway back in 1991 and the lousy handling of the gates and pumps for the following 14 years, the Wheeler Wildlife Refuge and TVA have nearly killed the fishing here. What a shame.

Good luck and good fishin'
