TENNESSEE: Old Hickory Lake – Began Fishing Transition Banks with Jerk Baits

I decided to head to Old Hickory Lake yesterday.

Arriving around 9AM, I begain fishing transition banks with jerk baits.

Now note, the wind was blowing at 25-30 MPH from the W to WNW so fishing was very tough from a wind aspect. Fishing transition banks on the wind blow areas, caught a few bass just as the front was passing through. Water temp was 48 degrees.

If out on the lake with this wind, ensure that you keep safety in mind. Wear warm clothes, bring plenty of gloves, and keep life jackets on.

TENNESSEE: Old Hickory Lake – Caught Bass on Crank Baits, Jerk Baits, Jigs & Worms

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

Decided to go to the lake yesterday for a couple hours. Arrived at 11am but did not start fishing till noon, due to motor problems. After resolving motor issues, my day turned into a great December day!

Air temperature was 63 degrees, and water temperature was 51 degrees when I arrived. I started out fishing transition banks. It did not take long to start catching them. Caught my first bass on the third cast. A solid keeper. I caught fish just about anyway I wanted. I caught some on crank baits, jerk baits, jigs, and worms. I ended the day around 3PM.

Caught 10 bass, 5 keepers with the biggest being 4 and half to 5 pounds. Had a couple over 3, a 2 and half, and one about 2 pounds.

Did not have a fish after 2pm, but had wore the spot out pretty good.

The key to success was to find the shad. Find the shad, you find the fish! Good luck to all!
