Northern vs Southern Fishing

What meager fishing skills and experience I have has been mainly in the many lakes and flowages of northern Wisconsin. I take fishing to be a relaxing way to (hopefully) come up with a special meal or two. I am NOT the cabela's or saturday morning tv show type of fisherman.

Anyhoo, somehow I ended up getting involved in a houseboat excursion on Dale Hollow Lake on the Kentucky/Tennessee border this June.

Can anybody give me the Cliff's notes version of the differances and/or similarities between these fihing experiences. Or could y'all point me toward a website that has info about fishing that area. I've heard stories about yo-yos and jugs that sound at least a little interesting but that's uncharted territory for me. Thanks in advance for any info you can pass along!

Fishing is the same, North or South. Ya light the fuse, throw the stick of dynamite, ya go pick up the floating fish. PS, don't get caught.

rhudson jug fishing    Posted 05-01-2003 at 21:15:44       [Reply]  [Send Email]
did some jug fishing a decade ago. used around here to fish for cat fish. line/sinker/hook tied to a gallon milk jug (ten or fifteen) take boat into cove and drop off jugs. carry boat back toward channel and wait for one (or several) of the jugs to bob and then start moveing. i guess it combines a little of the hunter/traper action in fishing. use a spotlight at night to track jugs. law on local lake states that name and address must be written on jug.(have never known anyone to do that) considered bad sport to let a jug get away from you. the real pros on lake fish for hybird bass (stripper) Virginia North carolina area.

Me too. I Thought he was talking about the jug that has XXX written on the side, and grandad says not to get it too close to the stove. Runs better than race fuel in a car.

Don't have any ideas but great question! I'll be watching for the answers too - went to our favorite local bridge and got 2 suckers tonite - they're salted in the sink & will hit the smoker tomorrow. Mn fishing season's a week away but there are about 120 species without limits or seasons. Got a BIG bass last nite - put him back :)
