In TN I have no idea. It is my thinking that in most areas, they vary greatly from lake to lake. Some have lots, some have none. keep in mind they are also known as jackfish and in areas where they are called that, most folks don't know they are really chain pickers.

Caught one on Pickwick back where Yellow Creek meets at the mouth of the Tombigbee on a white crankbait about 3-4 weeks ago. I bet he was every bit of 5 lbs. Joker was almost 21 inches long.
