That's the one thing about Palestine. If you fish up north you will find some of the biggest, hardest stumps anywhere. Me and a partner were idling up to Cades one day and spent about an hour on top of a stump before someone with a chain came and got us off. But you can have days like no other up in that part of the lake. My personal best 12.01 lbs came from Flat Creek in the mid 90's.
