    Glad you guys had a good trip and got into the money. You definitely put some miles in getting here. We we had a tough go at it. I arrived Thursday’s morning and had every intention of fishing Thursday and Friday. The weather did not allow that to happen. Wind was brutal not sure I’ve experienced wind like that on watauga. We had 5 hits Saturday and landed two Lakers. A 4.14 was the biggest fish. We ran everything at em but the kitchen sink. One fish came on a 10 color core and the rest of our hits came on the riggers . The normal milk runs were dry as we focused all of our effort towards the lower end. its interesting are hits came from 60-86 down much deeper than most fished. We were one of the only boats on the lower end. Good times can’t wait for April’s Chilhowee it’s looking like the last Saturday in April. Enjoyed meeting a great group of folks!

    Skunked

    Fished Melton Hill yesterday and didn't do much better. Only caught a few, fish were up shallow and on wood, tough day though for me also. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Skunked

    Fished Cherokee yesterday, small club tournament. Had zero, nada, zilch , skunked etc etc. Water 48-50 , blue bird skies and light winds. Unfortunately for some folks, I was not the only old dog that showed up with my tail tucked between my legs. It was tough. Cranks and jigs and even threw the old ball and chain. Although there was one high school event with over 140 boats and club guys from one end to the other, it was pretty quiet. Keep this trend of getting skinned going and I'll have to look at selling boat getting a bowling bowl LOL

    Fishing the Trout lakes 2019

    3/23 - Report Watauga Lake We enjoyed our first trip to TN and Watauga Lake. Fished from 7-1:30 going 8-10, all lake trout, with most of our fish before 9. All our fish came in the top 25 and mosts were within a 1/2 mile each side of the bridge. Couple of 4.5 pounders were our largest. Not being familiar with the lake, we started with something we could be confident in and what is our standard spring spread on Lake Michigan for lake trout where we would be fishing in about 20-25 FOW. That spread includes Silver Streak Mini Orange Crush on a 2 Color, Michigan Stinger UV Mix Veggies on 100 CU and a Silver Streak Standard Black Screwball on a Slide Diver. Those three took 8 of the 10 hits we had (Screwball had 5). We did take fish on a Dreamweaver Golden Orange Icicle on a free slider and a Michigan Stinger (Stingray size) UV Orange Tuxedo at 25 on the rigger after a change-up when the riggers only had one hit all morning running stuff between 40-70. Water temp about 46 and our speed at the ball was usually about 1.6. Water was pretty cloudy after the hard blow the previous days.

    We did fish from 3-6. First time on Watauga so we wanted to try and gather some info. Wind was blowing so hard we had to run up lake and troll into it to stay under 3.0. Was 1-2 so not much happening for us. should be fairly calm in morning. Looking forward to meeting members in the morning
  14. Big derby going out of 25E bridge on Cherokee Sat 23rd. 140+ boats. Gonna be crowded over there but I'm fishing a small derby anyways. We'll go out another launch area. It's spring time in East Tn!

    See you'all sat morning. Bring your wind proof bibs, jackets, hat, gloves in the morning and be ready to shed layers as the day progresses. Chilly start, but it will be nice once the sun gets up high.

    Dada----Saturday should be a nice day--at least weather wise! Hope you fill the boat and have a TA fish fry!! The Saturday boat traffic might be a bit heavy what with cabin fever and all. I'm going today and will launch at Walters Bridge, after the bass. I'll get back on conditions later today.

    spawning Crappie

    55 is a start--- Crappie also like clearer water that is a consistant level with some discharge at the dam. Saturday seems to be the day to fill up the livewell with Douglas crappie. Let's go fishin". dada 3-21-19 10:30 PM

    Water temp on Douglas is 55 degrees or better right now. Fish haven't moved in yet with the lake continuing to drop about a foot a day. That said, dada gave me a couple of crappie yesterday, one was a black crappie female that was bulging with blood shot eggs sacs.

    Going to bass fish Sunday. Trout in Little River Saturday. Will look for the bass shallow first, thanks for the tip. One more week and off to the White River to fish the Shad hatch. Should have the boat back by the time we come home.

    Kinda what I was thinking. We're catching bass dirt shallow and although it'll be a few weeks before they bed we're seeing bass with eggs. not as many as the bucks but they're getting a bit hungry. Cold windy and cloudy today. Bet we could catch some fish today. Work is a four letter word but it beats starving LOL

    spawning Crappie

    As the water beigins to warm up usually over 55 degrees, they should be on the move.
  24. Any ideas on when crappie will be shallow to make babies? I think I'll get a day or 2 next week. Tuesday maybe. I like to fish a bobber so the skinny water works best for me. Just going to try to have few for the table. Dada ought to have fish fry! I'll bring the cole slaw. LOL

    What do you fish for mostly?

    Anything that will tug on the other end of the line. I have never been one to target a specific species.
