    Weekend trip with my brothers.. where to go?

    Guys,

    Im taking a mid July weekend trip with my two brothers. Getting out on the water for a weekend and fishin hard for 3 days straight.

    Ive got several ideas but wanted to see what the collective wisdom here might have to suggest.

    My ideas -

    Douglas Lake (TN) (ive done very well there in the past in summer)

    Dale Hollow (need I say more?)

    Kentucky Lake (never been)

    Cumberland (I love big C)

    Laurel (never been)

    What do you guys think? I don't mind going somewhere close, thats less gas, less travel and more fishin. But Ive not fished Laurel before and the threat of pleasure boaters scares me there. Same with big C, but its big enough to get away. Dale, I dont know about. Last year, I took my wife and it wasnt a problem. (pleasure boaters)

    Douglas is beautiful, right below the smokies and you can always go to Pigeon Forge or Gburg for a little entertainment. That's the way Im leaning.

    Kentucky and Barkley are on fire this year, and if youve never been youll really enjoy it. Hire a guide if you want but a fishing report and a good map will put you on some fish. I love dale hollow also but ky and barkley would be my first choice

    July 18th should be Full Moon time. Nothing like slow rolling a BIG Single Colorado Spinnerbait at Dale Hollow. Plus with the crayfish spawning the same time, jigs will be useful on the points. Good Luck wherever you go.
