I don't know a lot about Watts Bar, but I would pick Pickwick, Wheeler, or Wilson, in that order. But then maybe I am biased.

Never fished Watts Barr, but I did drive over it today.....Lower Wheeler is Hot right now for big blues........If your after 40-60 lb Blues....Wilson is hard to beat.....but for the really Big Girls 60-100lb, I would stick with Wheeler.......I got a pic of a 95 lber caught 2 weeks ago on wheeler, Ill post it here later......but this guy has caught several nice ones from the bank in the last month.

Dat tells me two things. First, Wheeler might be the place to catch a HAWG. Second, MS got bigger channel cats. ;) Record I think is 52 or 58.
