    Best Trolling Motor?

    MK - love the anchor mode. Love the remote control (blue tooth.) I can sit in the back of the boat and troll - too cool.

    Shad Spawn

    Any ideas on the shad spawn on old hickory? Saturday the water was 58 upstream of the dam (Gallatin.) If mid-60's are the magic temps...maybe this weekend? Little frustrated finding them the last few weeks. More work to do on my part.

  5. I am kind of digging it. Live bait, right?

  8. I know the Stripes are up river (and a lot of fun to boot) but anyone fishing for Walleye this spring in Old Hickory?

    Welcome! Salt water translates well into fresh, but the nuances will drive you to drink. "Fresh" fish seem to be much less aggressive on the initial strike (there are exceptions) but all in all 'match the hatch" and you'll do fine. It's all about being out there and enjoying the time on the water.

    Spring fever

    Perfect size for cubing and deep frying - smaller the better if you are going to keep a few. Nice job!

    Finally got on the water...

    Used to be that if someone saw a boat fishing (anchored) you would slow down to minimal wake, pass them and continue on. Is that not the case anymore? As far as "ramp" time I usually launch by myself and it takes a few more minuets longer. But i stage everything before I launch and move the boat to the other side of the dock if possible. Yeah being 62 I take a little longer but i am still polite about it. Jusfishn is right, life is short so be respectful and enjoy the time on the water.

    New Aluminum Fishing Boats

    Lund 1625 Fury XL - no storage costs as it fits in the garage. No need for hole shots or to go fast. Stripes don't care what boat I am yanking them from; walleye's move slowly and the crappies are huddled - perfection!

    Live Bait Filters

    Beauty. May keep me from buying pounds of "shad keeper..."

    Fish Old Hickory out of Hendersonville. Spent years fishing MN (growing up), several years in GA (Alatoona) and several years fishing out of Tampa (inshore) and owned a 185CC Edgewater. (Sad day when I sold it...) Just bought a Lund to put around Old Hickory in. Firm believer in live bait - throw the cast net and feed the Stripes what they want. Happy to say I qualify for the senior discount...
