Knoxville my home town. I grew up in the hills of East Tennessee, though I live in Birmingham, Alabama now, so this little duel between Randy Howell and David Walker has great interest for me. David is representing the state of Tennessee and Randy is representing Alabama. I'm thinking my Tennessee Vols do not have a great chance against the 4th ranked Crimson Tide this Saturday on the football field. The Vols record is 3-4, and they are struggling. So I'm hoping David Walker can have a good day today and perhaps provide a little redemption for us starving Vol fans.
Right now the guys are fishing literally at the start of the Tennesee River in an area called Forks of the River. It is where the Holston and the French Broad meet to form the Tennesee River. The French Broad comes out of Douglas Lake and its water is more cloudy than the Holston. Walker says he believes the French Broad is better for bass fishing.
