Finally, the fish are in their fall patterns and feeding on a consistent schedule! With the water temperatures in the mid 50’s and the water level 3ft down, the fish are starting to feed for the winter! The bass have been biting consistently in 2ft-8ft on Alabama Rigs, chart/black rattle traps, topwater spooks, jigs, and swimbaits. We have been following the birds in search for bait and bigger fish underneath! Yesterday we took 1st place in the Two Rivers Ford Tournament with 15.53lbs and big fish with a 5.03lb largemouth!!!! The crappie have been biting fair to good on Crappie Magnets and live minnows up-lake. Both need to be fished around isolated wood in 6ft-12ft. Black and purple have been the best colors for us. Lastly, the HYBRID have been on fire. The morning has been good, the afternoon has been slower (unless it’s cloudy), and the later afternoon has been ON FIRE!!! Topwater lures and swimbaits have been tearing it up!!! If you want to know where and how we have been catching our fish sign up for my premium reports!

Today we had over 50 crappie with 25 keepers. Jerry Haglage “The Hagman” from from Donelson Tennessee…A 13-year client!
The last 7 days has been great! The cooler temperatures have helped the afternoon bass bite. Largemouths have been schooling from early morning to late evening on points, ledges and humps in 8ft-15ft! Whopper Ploppers, Alabama rigs, crankbaits, spinnerbaits and plastic worms have been producing well! The crappie have been biting in 11ft-17ft in brushpiles with minnows and Crappie Magnets. Purple/pink and grey/silver have been productive colors when fished on a 1/8oz jig head. We have also had several fun night trips recently! Black and pink Hoppy’s spinnerbaits (3/4oz or 1/2oz) in addition to plum ribbontail worms have been the ticket in 6ft-12ft on points. The hybrid have been feeding in the early mornings as well!

The last week on Percy Priest has been great! The water temperature has climbed into the upper 60’s throughout the entire lake and the fish have moved shallow. The crappie have moved shallow to spawn and biting on jigs and minnows on floats in 3ft-12ft! There is just something about watching that bobber descend beneath the surface that will never get old! The bass can be caught on several different patterns. Up lake, where the water is warmer, bass are being caught in 1ft-4ft of water on crankbaits, spinnerbaits, rattle traps and soft plastics. Down lake, where the water is a little cooler, bass are being caught on TN-rigs, jigs, soft plastics and crankbaits in 4ft-8ft. Also, BCGS’s pontoon boat is up and running!
