Lake Burton Shaky Head Fishing

It’s that time of year when the Spotted Bass and the Largemouth bass are coming off bed and starting to move out to their summer time staging areas.  On Lake Burton one of the best techniques to use this time of year is the shaky head or what some people call the Jig Head worm. Strike …

Lake Blue Ridge

It’s always nice to go fishing and catch big fish, and there is times when this happens. But this trip a couple of weeks ago was a special trip. I’ve taken Gene and his son out a couple of times on lake Blue Ridge, and it seems like there is always a cool front comes through …

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, …

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 …

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 …
