I fish mainly Leesville now, and then I float the river on my canoe and catch small mouth below Leesville dam down to Altavista.

I never have been, its a horsepower restricted lake, 10 hp or less i think and Ive heard the best fishing is way up the Res. and its really hard on batteries and not a good place for a 20 ft boat lol. From what Ive seen and been told, they just flooded the forest and most of the trees are still standing way above the water line. But Ive heard great stories about the fishing.

OLY--here is a pic of one lake I fish that is only minutes from the house.

as you can see, the lake is quite large, approximately 30,000 acres and it is a head water lake. the shoreline in the distance is not the end of the lake.... it is a turn in the channel. the lake is about 25 miles long.

the TENNESSEE RIVER is 652 miles long and is comprised of many dams forming very large lakes.

It shure couldn't happen here, and it does sound kind of fun So, this is a contest to catch the most fish, #'s of fish? Not just the biggest fish? Any links to help me understand this all?
You are trying to catch the most weight. # of fish can only be 5 so try for the biggest fish. BASS tourney will bring out thousands of people. We have one every year or two on Lake Norman (NC). Millions are won. Sport is so big that Mickey Mouse bought it!

Back to the Allison. Is not that boat aluminum And also don't they have a HP limit in the B.A.S.S

I'm on Lake Norman, We have had B.A.S.S here a few times.
Deepest point over 100 feet, 32510 acres, 520 miles of shoreline, ( more than North and South Carolina coastlines combined). Speedlimits???? , most of the race drivers have boats that go over 80 MPH. The bass boats hide

Your picture makes me want to go fishing---just went to the boat show this weekend

the bass boats hide? most of the bass boats here will do more than 80.......

the pic I posted is of a boat that is the fastest in the world and ran at 115 mph.

and the record holder boat is not the boat pictured. the record holder is a plain production model just like the one in the pic.

anyone with $50K plus to spend can own the fastest bass boat in the world.

I tried that bass fishing a couple of times. Didn't like it much. Too small and no fight. Do any of your fish for Steelhead or Salmon??
