KILL 'em ALL in a trout stream is still my motto.


As an avid trout lover myself im embarrassed by your comments, fisherman are supposed to be sportsman. Killing stripe because of your trout agenda isn't what fishing is about. You wouldnt like it if i came down your trout river and killed every trout i caught. That's not right and selfish to think that way. Your giving trout fisherman like me a bad name and i dont appreciate it.


I fished around a bunch of bait slingers on a trout stream yesterday and today who killed every fish they caught, and boasted about it as they did it. Saying if the limit was 100 they would kill 100.

The bait slinging trout crowd as a majority is probably the biggest group of game hogs I have ever been around.

In other words, you might be offended by 7mm's comments but rest assured he along with me and tons of others have witnessed the "sportsman" trout fisherman for decades. The word sportsman and most conventional trout fisherman shouldn't even be used in the same sentence.

IMO, Good points by both BowGirl and 7mm08.

BowGirl, would you feel differently if we were talking about Asian Carp invading our trout streams instead of Rockfish?


The way it is now yes i would, but if my fellow fisherman were getting enjoyment from catching asian carp, there where some avid asian carp fisherman around, then i would want them to be happy. Its not always about just me and what i want. Its important that we share and stick together as best we can.

Asian carp are going to be the scourge of freshwater rivers and lakes in this state before it's all said and done. They've been below Kentucky and Barkley dams for a while and I think I've read that they're below Pickwick now. They're gonna change a lot of things.

The majority, not all of course, but most of the bait fisherman on these trout streams are out for one purpose and one purpose only, that is to fill a stringer. There is no sport in their desires, and if they could dip them out of a tub they would. Having seen this group huddled around the boat ramp 5 minutes after the stocking truck leaves and whooping like savages with every fresh stocker that hits the stringer turns any sportsmans stomach.

Combine that with watching folks literally walk through the parking lot with a stringer of fish dragging on the pavement, really makes it a stretch to consider them even close to being sportsmen.

Not sure where you are talking about, but in many of the areas stocked, especially warm water streams, the TWRA ENCOURAGES catching and keeping your limit. These fish will die when the water temperature rises. Even in some cold water streams like the Caney Fork, the rainbows are stocked for harvest. I do have a problem with people who poach, but I have no problem if you are catching and eating your limit of stocker rainbows.

If you're a trout fisherman on the Clinch you need to take every rock out you can. It takes a lot of fish to feed one 40 pound rockfish, much more to feed the numbers that are there.

Look at the shad numbers on Norris and Cherokee compared to Douglas. There's no comparison... And I believe it's due to the rockfish. Guides on Norris and Cherokee are now going to Douglas to catch baitfish where there are no rockfish.

Setterman, so long they are not keeping over their limit, who cares. Complain to the TWRA, not about the "bait fishermen" (who are more than sporstmen than you are from your comments) who are legally fishing. Especially the stocker trout, from what I understand that is one of the main purposes of stocked trout.
