WOW! Take a look at the pictures Berry Fraley sent in from this weekend's "Fishing for the Big Ones" Aquarium trip. It was a catch and release outing on a beautiful day.
Here's what Berry has to say about a day on the river:
"The Tennessee River is a wonderful River system that offers fishermen a chance to catch many species of fish along it's banks. Nickajack Lake and dam is just 15 minutes West of Chattanooga and is one of the many crown jewels of the Tennessee River system. It offers many scenic views from the River Gorge, and the River Park and has a fishery second to none. The Nickajack tail waters offer some of the best striper fishing in the south.

By the way, guide Berry Fraley of Big Fish Guide Service is no stranger to Nickajack Dam. He guides for these monster Rock fish and Hybrids from early March through late October. Check out his website at: http://www.captainberry.com/
