  3. Anyone???

  4. Contact Ezzell Cox in Tazewell, TN.
    He's one of the best guides/striper guys on Norris, (TN for that matter) he's pretty busy right now with other responsibilities, but he can point you in the right direction.
    I understand he's the acting mayor of Tazewell, do a google search you should be able to contact him easily.

    I have fished cumberland a lot. Striper fishing is tackle intensive, so my advice would be start with a guide. I would recommend Captain Jim Dunam. He also has several good DVD's about it. I think his website is striper fun. Live bait fishing has always worked better for me, but as far as lures I would use a bucktail (white 1/2-3/4 oz) or a Rapala Sliver if I had to choose.
