Lake Burton Spotted bass

I had the pleasure of guiding the Hibbitts family Sunday on Lake Burton. We’ve been having some windy days and cooler nights for the past week, which has brought the water temps down some and has made some of the fish move back out. With the full moon coming in the next couple weeks the …

Lake Guntersville Largemouth

Made a quick run over to Lake Guntersville for a little largemouth bass action.  I was hoping to find some big fish on beds, but when we got there the wind was blowing bad. So we had to resort in finding pockets and creek runs where the wind wasn’t blowing as bad. We caught fish on jigs, …

Lake Chatuge fishing is getting hot

Lake Chatuge fishing is getting hot, the lake is starting to come up and the water temp is 56-58 degrees. The spotted bass are starting to spawn, you can find them out off long rocky points and spawning flats. Early morning they’ve been close to the banks but as the sun gets up later in the day …

Lake Blue Ridge Spring fishing

Lake Blue Ridge is starting its Spring fishing patterns. TVA is starting to bring the lake up and the fish are starting to move up close to their spawning areas. I’ve been catching fish on pebble rocking banks and points, using tube baits, small crank baits and jigs. Were just coming off full moon so anything …

Spring is just a cast away

We’ve had a crazy wet winter, our lakes have been up and down  two or three times due to all the rain fall. But Spring time is just a cast away. With the warmer weather starting and the days getting longer, the fish are starting to move up. I’ve had the chance to fish Lake …

Dale Hollow Lake – Winter Smallmouth

There is nothing in the world more fun than catching winter Smallmouth, especially when your fishing Dale Hollow where the world record Smallmouth was caught. We went up to Dale Hollow a couple weeks ago hoping the water temps was in the mid 40’s. We was looking to throw the floating fly and catch Smallmouth, but …

Lake Chatuge Spotted Bass

Lake Chatuge has been fishing good all season, despite all the wet weather we’ve been having. The fish are already wet so it don’t seem to bother them, and it don’t bother me. I learned years ago you need good rain gear if your going to be on the lake 200 days out of the …

Lake Nantahala 2015

The best way to end 2015 is fishing. So I chose to fish one of the prettiest lakes I guide on, which would be Lake Nantahala in North Carolina. It’s a deep clear lake with allot of lay downs and rocky banks. One of the great features about  lake Nantahala is it’s only got  Largemouth and Smallmouth bass. If your looking to …

Fall Fishing on Lake Burton

Some of my best days fishing lake Burton has been cloudy overcast days with rain showers. Yesterday was no exception, we had just that with a little added wind. We marked a lot of fish but getting them to bite was the trick, but when we did we made it count. We had some nice …

Lake Chatuge Rainy and Wet

It was a nasty rainy and windy Saturday, but these kids wanted to fish. There is nothing I like seeing more than kids wanting to fish. It’s pouring the rain when I pull up to the dock but these troopers are ready to go. Now let me add, this day was not even a day the ducks wanted …
