my son is going to graduate school in johnson city up in the tip. has done real well with crappie in the larger water and has caught a bunch of nice little brook trout up in the near by moutains. he said the locals have been real helpful putting him on fish
I went fishing at Dale Hollow over the Memorial day weekend and found 10 crappie that where hungry. Got a few SM, but nothing very big. Had a nice cat (about 5#) and a drum @ about the same. I used minnows and about everything in my bag with limited success. After 11:00 you really needed to get off the lake because of the boat and jet ski traffic. The weather was really nice, no rain and in the 90's. We fished all kinds of depths, but could only pick up a straggler here and there. I wish I knew how to get a stringer of those slabs.
