    Fishing Friends,

    Each year our business slows just a bit in August and then dramatically falls off in September. School is nearing, Football and Hunting Season kicks in gear and lots of other priorities get in the way of catching fish. However, the fishing doesn't slow down as the Top Water bite is happening almost every morning and the lake traffic is such that we often have large schools of White Bass all to ourselves! 😉 The Pictures are from a couple of trips this past week. Almost every fish was caught on Top Water baits and the action was really good! Check out the 309 Flats for the early AM Schooling and then move up the Lake to Points and Humps in 15-20 feet of water and you'll find fish feeding on or near the bottom.

    Reports of nice catches of Crappie being caught on Brushpiles and the Hwy 287 Bridge Columns are coming in. Minnows fished in 20' plus of water will get you a few of these tasty fish for a great fish fry!

    Adam and I have LOTS OF WEEKDAYS we need to fill in August and September and even have a BOAT AVAILABLE on the following SATURDAYS AND HOLIDAY:

    Saturday, August 24 & 31(Labor Day Weekend)
    Monday, Labor Day September 2nd
    Saturday, September 7 & 21

    Give us a call or email and Let's Go Fishin'!

    Heat of the Summer

    As always, the hot summer can be very discouraging; not only is it hot but it seems the grass nats can drive you crazy and there are big gapes of time between bites! When it is hot, and the sun is bearing down on you the only thing that takes your mind off the conditions is... read more

    Your Fishing Spot

    Sometimes you can just have too many places to fish, too many way points and too many miles of water to travel to get there; don’t try to fish everyone. If you’re not finding fish when that happens you should think about what you have been doing, what type of structure, depth... read more

    No Fishing Today

    At the age of 5 through 7 this was my power house! It was 31/2 horsepower outboard Evinrude motor. It had a two-blade propeller that thrust it forward at least 5 to 8 knots. My boat was a 12 foot wooden row boat. Yes, it leaked like a sieve! However, even as a young child,... read more

    Flipping Anyone

    If there one thing you can count on in fall fishing on a regular basis is clear water, the reason being is generally we do not see a lot of rain; TVA does not pull much current and the water oxygen level is concentrated in different areas of the lake. As the thickness of the... read more
