TENNESSEE: Bass can be Found Along the Ledges

Friday, July 27th, 2012

Bass fishing on Old Hickory is starting to come alive.

The recent rains have cooled the water off some.  Schools of bass can be found along the ledges as well as along the creek channels.

Some big bass have been caught up shallow with the fresh and higher water levels around vegetation.  Fish have been caught using soft plastics and jigs, along with shallow to deep crankbaits.

The shallow bite is fair to good early and late with the deeper bite picking up as the day progresses. There have been alot of bass caught on soft plastics and jigs as well either texas rigged or on a carolina rig.  Been catching bluegill and catfish with customers lately.

Catfish are up spawning at this time so there have been quite a few caught shallow.

TENNESSEE: Fishing Today was Unbelievable!

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Not wanting to fish for bass this morning we decided to try for some crappie and I am glad we did. To sum it up the fishing today was unbelievable! All our fish today were caught at the edges of spawning flats in 4′ to 6′ of water on jigs and tubes using a float set at 3′ deep. Water temp was 54 degrees. We ended the day with 62 keeper crappie.

TENNESSEE: Old Hickory Lake – Crankbaits & Tennessee Rigs

Friday, February 17th, 2012

Went out to Old Hickory Lake yesterday with my wife to catch some bass.

It was a tough one! A day after a cold front in the winter.

Started out slow, but the bite got better as the day went on. Ended up with 11 bass, 4 keepers! Largest one was 4 pounds caught on a crankbait. Second largest was 3 and half and caught on a Tennessee rig. Total weight of the 4 keepers was little over 12 pounds. Not a bad day for post frontal conditional. The rest came on a jig. The key to today was fishing slow and around cover. All bass were between 8 and 15 ft.

Good Luck to all…

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

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Dig-In-Anchors.com
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!

TENNESSEE: Old Hickory – Throwing Rattle traps at Bass Feeding on Schooling Shad

Monday, November 21st, 2011

Dig-In-Anchors.com

Bass fishing is starting to slow down a little right now.

Some fish are still in the backs of creeks, but found most have moved to transition banks. Try throwing rattle traps at bass feeding on schooling shad in the banks of the creeks. We caught some of the bigger fish on a spinnerbiat, like a secret weapon spinnerbait. The key is to find banks with rip rap, and then find wood on those banks. Try to hit and bounce off of the wood, at different angles. The fish we caught off the transition banks, were between 8 to 12 feet. Jerkbaits and jigs were our baits of choice when fishing these banks.

Just keep in mind that fishing is slowing down, but the chances of catching a big trophy bass is at its best right now.

TENNESSEE: Old Hickory Lake – Bass Caught on Spinnerbaits, Crankbaits & Soft Plastics

Monday, November 14th, 2011

Bass being caught in the creeks on spinnerbaits, crankbaits and soft plastics up river.

Look for water temperatures in the 60s. Key structure to fish would be rock and grass.

Few fish being caught down river.
