October 11-20, 2015 – Percy Priest Lake

The last week on Priest has offered both active and slow days of fishing. Water temperature is now 64-67 degrees and near 2ft below summer pool. The crappie are moving into shallow water 4ft-15ft on the upper end of the lake.  Fishing the river channel ledge near Jefferson Pike Bridge produced a 35 keeper stringer of quality white and black crappie!  Both live minnows fished 2ft-3ft off the bottom and casting 1/8oz  jigs with Crappie Magnets in Chartreuse/blue flake and Pearl color have been productive.  Mid-lake fishing brushpiles in 10ft-20ft was slow last week with minimal bites.   The bass have been concentrating in 2ft-5ft throughout the lake.  Rock boulders and flat to bluff transition have been popular locations.  Shallow squarebill crankbaits in shad color pattern and Texas Rig craw fish has been productive. With the water temperature in the mid 60’s make sure you have topwater lures tight on for the next cloudy day! To read where and how we catch our fish sign up for my premium reports at www.briancarper.com/ To watch hands on videos from my bassboat on where and how we catch our fish sign up for my Elite Videos at www.briancarper.com
