    Spring fever

    Careful Rusty you will change your "Little fish guide service" name.
  5. Cabin fever releaf if you need it. But the water needs another week ...to be productive fishing. Norris and Cherokee lakes are still high with a lot of color & still some trash. High flow incoming & out. Both lakes continue to drop as TVA try to take it back to normal seasonal operating levels. Water temperture is still cool around 50 with some shallow afternoon locations into the mid 55's. Brown algie bloom is just starting. A few walleye & crappie being caught. Wait another week if you can so you can watch the big bass tournament in Knoxville Tn. .

    FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR FOR STRIPERS

    May and June are my most predictable & productive with bait easy to catch but I enjoy the fall months best. I love the fall because the boaters, skiers, many fisherman are finding other activities. The stable, comfortable fall weather patterns with other sportsman now hunting, football, basketball, & school leave the fall fishing to me.

    Underwater light

    White and green both work. Depth is important. Look at your fish finder to see where it needs to be.

    Live Bait Filters

    Great filters. I use them in my Mel's tank & Super bait tank 2
  10. I don't think it will damage the musky fishing except in that area because they will now scatter over the entire lake and not be concentrated. That could be a positive. The tailrace downstream of Melton Hill dam has some good musky fishing also.
  11. I suggest you go to (Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation) TDEC's Division of Water Resources Office. Find fish advisories. Melton Hill Reservoir list pollutant advisories PCB's Catfish should not be eaten. I do eat & enjoy fish from clean water most weeks of the year. Me and a small group helped Oak Ridge National Lab collect some fish for contaminate studies on Norris early February before the monsoons.
  12. Some years past the water flows were lower and the discharge temperature higher did attract much of the wintertime forage & therefore the game fish. Impact other than this???? It is amazing how much grass and stuff is now growing in all the coves.

    HOW DO YOU HOOK YOUR BAITFISH?

    I use a 1/0 or 1 Octopus on alewives. If you can get 7 inch alewife tell me where. I do get a few that large but mostly less than 4 inch.

    HOW DO YOU HOOK YOUR BAITFISH?

    I use gizzards larger than 6 inch so I can go in the mouth and out the upper lip most of the time. Sometimes I will hook them in the back in front of the dorsal fin. Most of the time I hook the alewife across the nose in front of the eyes. Sometimes when fishing straight down or bottom fishing I will hook them in the tail.
