    Bait Fishing in Nashville

    In my opinion, keeping bait lively is harder than finding bait. Get a good tank and it will make it easier!

    Planer boards

    Does anyone have a reasonably priced source for planer boards? Everywhere I've looked online they seem to want 30 bucks a board. Any info would be much appreciated.
  4. I like this topic b/c this is something that i've experienced lately too. Planer boards are easy to lose in the wind or fog. The last few times i've been out people have picked up my boards within sight and not attempted to return them. One of them was a man and a woman in which they obviously were going to keep them. (probably the same folks) They spent the night striper fishing with shiners :/... I have my name & phone # on each but in my experience the people that pick them up to keep don't even know what there used for. I've thought about referencing a reward for the returned boards but have yet to make it happen.
  5. Saw on the TWRA region 4 facbook page that a 104lb new state record was pulled out of Cherokee. The guy that caught it broke his own record (96lbs) from last year. The picture didn't do it justice.
  6. I'm in duck hunting withdrawal. What a sorry year though....
  7. Heard some gobbling this a.m.- Looking forward to next weekends opener. May go fishing and throw the shotgun in the boat...

    altering SBT II filter side

    Has anyone cut down the stand pipe on the filtration side of the super bait tank II? If so, is there a downside to doing so? I was thinking about cutting mine down so it will be able to filter with less water. I'm afraid that if I chop it down & then fill it up that it won't filter properly. Thoughts?

    You can cut polyfill but it has a short life

    in-lake bait storage

    I wonder if they were in a river with nominal generation flow if it could work? I agree that the otters could be a problem.

    in-lake bait storage

    Hey y'all- I need some ideas on how to create a tank to store bait (alewife, threads, or gizzards) that can be dropped down in the lake. I don't want to have to run the pump in my bait tank overnight, deal w/water temp, amonia, salt, and have to fool w/filtration. Any pictures would be welcome. I was thinking a 50 gallon plastic drum that's perforated that could be sunk to the bottom of the lake and then lifted with a boat winch attachced to a dock. Thoughts?

    Thanks y'all- I'm located in Kingsport. I primarily fish Boone, SOHO, Watauga, and the Holston. I guess I'm like most working folks that don't get to fish as much as they'd like to. I've been looking for a place to share & receive local East TN reports. I just got into striper fishing and this will be the first year that I've actually got enough gear to do it. (And I thought duck hunting was gear intensive!).
