They do a lot of trot lines around the big river. Set 'em on friday, then come back on saturday for the harvest. A hundred hooks baited in a line....
I don't know if it would work where Y'all are, but "JUGGING" is also popular. This is where you set up several floats with a hook and line, then you get to chase them all over the place with a boat when something hits them...

Like casting nets - I found out I can use a cast net up to ten foot radius (20 foot wide) in Tennessee, just not at a managed lake.
That's cool! I still have a few of my old 'croaker grabbers' from when I was in Norfolk!!! I can't find my six and seven that I used to take to the beach, but I still have a nine foot...
Yeah we do the casting nets to. I actually just did it the other night and caught a good amount of jumping mullett. It can get so rough down here so quick we can't do the trout lines but that is a neat idea. I have never heard of the JUGGING. That sounds like it would be fun.

Jugging might work in a bay, if the tide is right. The bright neon pool floats that look like water pipe insulation are glued onto a wooden dowel rod so that you can tell which ones are who's. Line is attached to a ring at the bottom fixed to the wood dowel.
Originally - milk jugs, detergent jugs, and old bleach bottles were spray painted to mark who owned what, thus the name "JUGGING". Line was just tied through the molded handles....
The advantage of the pool float idea is that when they get "HIT" they stand up in the water so you can tell!
*Jugging is allowed in Tennessee TWRA managed lakes (including Glenn Springs) only during the week - monday through friday. It's against the rules on weekends.
I never had mutch luck in NC in the few lakes around here I try to stick to ponds one lake actually charges you to put a boat in the water the bad part is we never even caught a tree limb we do get some blue gill somtimes in lake norman with crickets I guess it's due to the tournaments here if you used dynimite in a lake around here you'd be better of to spend the money on a fish dinner at a restraunt you'd get about the same amount of fish unless you count carp
