2013 Southern Classic Musky Weekend

Deep through the heart of Middle Tennessee flow numerous rivers that comprise some of the finest bastions of southern muskies.

Depending on where you go, wilderness is a relative term. However, having spent most of my years in Florida, backcountry flats surrounded by mangroves are the wilderness I know best.
