Me and a buddy fished the Raven's fork trophy section in Cherokee NC over the MLK holiday weekend.

Fishing was slow but the 9 fish we did catch were all great size the biggest was 25" and 6 lbs.

the water was on around 35 degrees, the fish were pooled up deep, our best luck was with a golden girddle bug with 2 BB size split shot about 14" up the leader
