The whites are hitting all up and down the Cumberland. Fish the current seams, any cuts in the bank, mostly during generation. Caught our limits Sunday on a bluebird sky day. Bunch of big crappie too.

Oh and another question, what are you guys using? In the previous years ive done very good with rattle traps. Last i didnt do so well but i didnt start fishing for them until mid April, after they spawned.
