    Pics from a few weeks ago

    There's a lot of yellow bass in the watershed lakes in West Tennessee, so many that they steal all your bait when crappie fishing. Never saw one big enough to fillet unless you want tater chip fillets. Supposedly pretty bony.
  2. Old ain't always bad. I just swapped out an old Cardinal spinning reel I bought when I was at UT nearly 45 years ago. My grandson used it when we went fishing on the Bar 3 weeks ago and he caught his small jaws and hybrids on it.

    Watts Bar report

    The hybrids were where they were supposed to be right at sunset, but they just were not busting bait. I had hoped we might even hang a rock fish since they usually hang around the same area.
  4. I took my grandson fishing on the Bar a couple of weeks ago looking for schooling fish. Didn't find any busting shad. He did get to catch a few nice ones (2 lb smallie, 2 lb 13 oz hybrid).

    fall shad and bass

    Any of those lipless crank baits should do the job working them around and through the shad. I also have caught them throwing a crankbait that runs 10-12 ft deep to get to the bass hanging below the school of shad.

    we finally made it

    Chrome with a blue back has been my go to bait for many years. Occasionally, I'll use a sexy shad color.

    we finally made it

    On Watts Bar, I've seen a lot of folks throwing Rooster Tails (or reasonable facsimile) at the "boils". I'm personally partial to a lipless crank bait. Can catch a variety (smallmouth, Kentuckys/Spots, stripe (white bass) and hybirds. I've even caught a 22 lb rockfish (striper) on the rattletrap chasing shad/boils. Lots of fun.

    Are they checking the stomach contents for dog food?

    Remembering all who served

    Just wanted to make sure that all that have served and sacrificed all are remembered this day. As one who saw the guys come home, I just wanted to make sure they knew that they also were appreciated then and now. And to the families of those that only returned home under a flag, I really want you to know that they are especially remembered and appreciated. Every time I go to D.C., I make a visit to the Wall, honoring those that went and served.

    Woods Reservoir Smackdown!!

    Didn't take long for the word to spread. Pretty soon it'll be covered up with tournaments like the Chick.

    Rod repair in Knoxville area?

    I've fixed rods pretty much how rusty50576 described, except I use a epoxy (I used JB Weld) on the piece I slide inside the broken rod, making sure that the piece I use extends a couple of inches either side of the break to give more strength to the broken area.

    Woods Reservoir Smackdown!!

    That's a great day for anyone. You don't get many of them unless you're fishing a stocked private lake, so savor the moment. Makes everyone start looking for the closest ramp on Woods.

    Fishing License

    I've finally made the move that ecox talked about. I turned 65 in the fall and just got my '"permanent" hunting & fishing license for $50 (could have continued at $5/year). Licenses are worth every penny for the enjoyment (and frustration) of fishing and being on the water.
  14. In case you don't have this link, here's a link to TWRA that takes you to a site showing launch ramps all over the state. https://www.tn.gov/twra/gis-maps.html
  15. I agree with kwk, nothing can beat fried rabbit, gravy biscuits. dada, I heard of people tying a string to door of a wire cage and routing it above the cage so you can "remotely" open the door.
