Wow that's a lot of Stripers being stocked! Maybe I can get into the 30 club. Thanks David.

Old Hickory Lake is probably just as famous as the East TN impoundments for big fish. Cumberland River is legendary. And the Stones River is nearby as well which had a record come out of it I think.

Gotta like that "Musky" stocking. Eyeroll... MUSKIE. Blows my mind because the guy who wrote this probably has a college degree, and has probably seen the word muskie 1000 times.

Funny you mention that Shawn I just had this conversation with someone recently, muskie is deemed proper in some southern locales and musky proper the further north you go. Kind of like pronouncing crappie in the South or "croppie" up North. As a kid in northern Wisconsin it was always musky.

No cheese head! Born in Chicago, but spent my summers in Hayward WI. My family had a fishing resort on the Chippewa river for 50 years.

Musky is an adjective. Muskie is a fish. Muskellunge, Esox masquinongy. It always looks wrong to me when i see "musky"

Some even say musky is singular and muskie is plural, but no one agrees. Even legendary lures differ, such as Mepps' Musky Killer and Suick' Muskie Thriller. I think nobody really knows.
