    should be PRIME TIME striper/hybrid action. We fish Cherokee every spring/fall, and I'll be there the last week of April. Night bite is always good that time of year.
     

  3. Big John-

    I've fished that lake more than a few times. There are a couple of damns that you can find with a good map - if the water is moving, you will find fish fishing below them.

    A lot of guys go for the smallies on that lake, but I've done pretty good finding largemouth and spots. There isn't a lot of shallow water, but there are a couple of creeks that offer very good largemouth water in the spring on that lake. I got quite a few on white spinner baits (willow leaf blades). When I needed to slow down, I went with a watermelon Senko.

    I didn't pay to much attention to the stripers, but did see quite a few nice ones pulled out.
