I read the thread about the catfish (NOODLING)not being able to be eaten. What other types of fish are found in TN waters, and can they be caught and eaten?
and how do I find out what the rules/requirements are for fishing licenses in TN?
give me the inside scoop, please

Default OMG...that says alot!

SKINEM: thanks for the website info. Tells me a lot more than expected.
Did notice that the advisories list had AUGUST 2008 in parentheses.
Wonder if that means it hasn't been updated since then or that's when it was first started, and the info is current
If it is current, then fishing in TN is definately hazardous to ones health when relying on what is caught as a food source.
Sooo many catagories for Licenses too!!
Maybe,it's the TX heat that has fried my brain,but I'm a tad confused.
But after seeing the advisories, I'm not sure if I want to go fishing, after all. Sorry, not trying to dis or insult TN in any way. Fishin's just not as much fun if I can't eat what I catch.

You can eat what you catch in most all places. The advisories seem to come and go, although there are a couple of lakes that have had some for quite some time. While there are quite a few places with advisories, please note two things...1st is that there are far and away more places without advisories than with. There are sooooo many places to fish here and so many bodies of water that these represent a small fraction of what's available. 2nd, please note that the advisories in most cases are for specific species and not all species, due to what they eat and where they are located.

Use that link to find more updated info.

...and I'll see your Texas heat and raise you some Tennessee humidity.

shalako: Think I'll pass on the water mocassins. Hear that snake tastes just like "chicken" but I'm not that hungry or brave to try it. Maybe when SHTF,I'll have no choice, hopefully it won't be for a while yet...

Nice looking fish. Bet it gave a good fight. Are they a good eating fish? or more for sport I don't think I could reel in something like that by myself. I'm short, old and not a true fisherman. I mainly just drowned a lot of worms or shiners/minnows.

I know you guys in west TN just love that " noodling" seeing it's legal now. Wonder if you could "noodle" a paddle fish ?
