A friend of mine and I fished Reelfoot Friday 10/22/10. Pitched jigs around exposed stumps in 7 to 8 foor of water.
Keep 45. If you can brave the stumps. The bite is pretty good.
Be careful and look for the stumps just under the surface they call them "WidowMakers". Junebug and Charturse seems to get the most action with Black and Charturse coming in second.
