    Tellico on 7.15.19

    Took the day off and fished Tellico with a co-worker from Wisconsin. Got on the water at 8:30 and picked up five LMB in one creek mouth mid-lake by noon. We saw some breaks and thought it was white bass but it turned out to be largies chasing shad. We missed a couple more with short strikes and lost one at the boat. All came on a spook one knocker in bone color. Water temp was 85. Had a great lunch at Tanasi Grill and cooled off before heading to Upper Tellico to try the cooler waters. Fished the back channel (right side of Harrison island) had about a 3-½ pound smallie on an underpin swim jig but he spit it at the boat. Topwater bite was not happening today but it's looked so fishy up there. Spotted several nice bass in the ultra clear water along with probably a 15 lb striper we almost ran over with the trolling motor. Not a bad day considering the mid-summer heat. Sure beats working.

    What time for wake boats? They're dangerous for everyone. I understand the weekenders are mostly folks that work and weekends are their only opportunity but it was 11a and cloudy and had just stopped raining. I'm fortunate that I can go about any time and week days are best for me. I'm not upset, just sharing. Mr and Mrs Dang and the whole dang family reminded me of that LOL

    I don't feel quite as dumb doing yard work all weekend now.....
  11. Said I was done fishing in day time last of June, but the weather bug said Sunday, yesterday was gonna be cloudy and few showers with temps approaching 80 for the high. Couldn't resist. Splashed boat 630a water was 82 and has clear as I've seen it in awhile. Fished mouth of Panther Creek to Hamblin County boat dock. Fished jigs, plastics and long rocky points. Some cliff ends. Some humps. Didn't see any schoolers, white or otherwise, and didn't catch anything. No hero just zero. Goose eggs for both of us. Along about 11a while fishing a rock pile that is clearly marked rock, usually good for one or two, I was nearly ran over by a pontoon. Mr and Mrs dang and the whole dang family on main lake with no other boats in sight took aim for me, or so it seemed. Weekenders without a clue just trying to have some fun. I think I'm gonna pass on weekends for sure. I don't think these folks were trying to be mean but just dumber than a box of rocks. So I loaded up and went home to my recliner.

    Fishing the Trout lakes 2019

    You guys are almost making me jealous. I've got a laundry list of broken or nearly broken stuff to fix. Hopefully after covering a leaky roof tomorrow I can buy enough time to hit the water....if the truck can last. If I can convince all parties involved I'll try to get to Watauga Wed/Th. Shea

    Hey Dada

    Tube, Three doctors- no results yet. One says maybe "allergies", another says heart skips a beat, another says possibly lungs,-------- At 81 on aug 3, & too many years on the Fire Dept in Chicago area, maybe that's the problem??? Now, I have to pick my peach trees & the garden today, then finish mowing the grass. AIN'T FINISHED FISHING YET! Thanks. dada 7-14-19 8:46 AM

    Can't find any skipjacks

    Anybody know a good spot for skipjacks this time of year in east tn? I have been to countless dams and a few lakes but i can't find any.. I need a good cooler full and it's been really frustrating to not catch a single one at each place that i went to. I've been fishing off the bank for the past 6 days to try and find them but if i have to get the boat out i will.. Fished with foley spoons and a bunch of different types of jigs and grubs but nothing is working. Hope somebody can help me out or take me and show me where to get them because I'm definitely new to the skipjack round up.
