    What is the fishing like on the Big Piney. We are coming up to Turkey hunt for a while, but would love to get in a little fishing in the afternoon.

    You should get some good replies to this one....It has been about 15 yrs since I've fished it, but the smallmouth and goggle eye should be bitin down there!!!

    i caught a 4lb largemouth in an impoundment on thursday. i was jiggin a 6" plastic black worm tipped with a red tail.
    i take out my digital camera to get a pic and the %&$#in batteries are dead. i threw him back. if you after big bass go in the impoundments.
    i dont fish live bait unless im going after huge catfish, so if i was to go today i would throw anytype of buzzbait, if they dont hit that use any type of jigs. all the big fish i ever caught on big piney was in impoundments, but i caught my fair share of smallies in deep holes with spinners and 1/8 jigs. but with all this rain the piney is very muddy. im going to wait a few days after this storm hits so the mud can settle. shoot i been doing more river fishing than turkey huntin. that 4lber was the biggest bass i have caught out of big piney. im very anxious to go back.
    were you hunt at? i can tell ya some good place if your around my area.
    later
