I'm happy to report that Dale Hollow is on fire. Water temps are near 50. And the lake is almost in spring pattern. Right now swim baits, jerk baits, and crank baits are key. The largemouth have sprung up big time. After catching fish all day we caught more green fish than brown
Hey anglers. Here is your January Dale Hollow report, water temps are in the low 40's near the dam and high 30's up the lake by Lillydale. Some days the fish are biting and some days they are not. It's been kinda tough for me recently but if you put your time in you will find
Hello fishing enthusiasts! Here is your Dale hollow fishing report for November 2013. Water temperatures have fallen to near 53° And the fish are starting to move up to shallower water. Tail spinner and football jig is what I'm catching most of my fish on. In the mornings I'm
Hey anglers, sorry its been so long since my last update. The water temps are 63 and the water is clear on the main lake with a slight stain in the backs of the creeks. The weather is changing fast and the water will get cooler with the cold nights we've been having.
Howdy anglers. This is your smallmouth report for Dale Hollow lake. I spent 18 days on the water during the month of July and the bite has changed several times. The lower end of the lake has been all but dead when it comes to catching fish. So I've been running up lake 15-35
Well folks... The fishing is improving big time. The bass have moved up real shallow at night. And eating on the surface in the morning, the top water bite is the only time you'll see a grown man soil his pants and smile at the same time. Lol. It's so much fun it should
Hey anglers. This report comes to you from a confused angler. The bite is hit and miss, one day they are biting the next nothing.
The water is about 3 feet above summer pool, so the water is in the trees. The Core is pulling water pretty hard do it wont be up long.
Hey fellow anglers, I'm very sorry its been so long since my last update. I've been able to escape from work and go fishing the last couple weekends. I went down to prefish for a tournament and then came back the next weekend for the tournament. The bite has been slow
If you’re looking for a long standing old timer bait that has produced for years nothing fits better into that class of great baits better than jerk baits do. It has been around for years and has evolved as one of the best cold water baits ever produced. It’s been such a prolific... read more
One thing I notice every day when I am fishing with most anglers is that they fish their bait the same way cast after cast. Most experienced anglers are constantly adjusting their retrieve and making a change as to how they present it until they find a bite. Customers ask me... read more
There is a saying in fishing that goes “the best time to go fishing is when you can.”
With the frenetic pace and busy schedules of modern life, the saying is true more than ever. However, if you only have a few weekends each spring to fish, the experience yields more stress... read more
As spring approaches and the fishing continues to get better the thought that enters my mind every year is will my body hold up allowing me to fish every day. Eight hours on the water day in and out requires me to try to strengthen parts of my body every year to hold up under... read more
My father was a whiz with boat engines. It seemed as though he could fix almost any mechanical problems without involving factory parts. Back in the old days, you just couldn’t stop what you were doing just to run out to the... read more

Now that we have arrived into the February time frame finding fish is all about understanding what takes place as the fish migrate toward the spawn. The first thing one must understand is that this time of year the bass become a by-product of their biological clock; in other... read more
