What is a Stumpknocker?
The Stumpknocker is a fish that has long been a part of Southern fishing lore. You’ll find these small bream-like fish hugging the submerged cypress stumps where they live and feed – thus giving them the name Stumpknockers. Stumpknockers are found in large numbers along the scenic Withlacoochee and other Florida rivers.
Stumpknockers Restaurants is like its namesake – small and tucked away, but well worth the trouble to find.
