You gotta love it!
Have spent many wonderful years striper fishing below Barkley Dam in Ky. It is on the Cumberland river.
A lot of folks go out in the boat and pull the live shad or shiners through the current, but I have always loved fishing from the rocks. It's simple and easy. No fuss. Just your rod & reel and your favorite jig.
Gotta keep it down deep in the rocks, so you do hang up quite often, but then there's that time when you think for a split second that you're hung on a rock, and suddenly that rocks takes off like a ragin' bull!
I have good memories of fishing with family and friends off of those rocks, and there are memories still to be made. I haven't set any state records or anything like that.....yet:)....
