Striper, Trout, Smallmouth, and Musky, guide trips in the Nashville area. Our home waters are Cumberland and Caney Fork River and our specialty is fly fishing for Trout and Stripers.

~Our tradition is that of the first man who sneaked away to the creek when the tribe did not really need fish~

For now. The crowded rivers, low Trout numbers, and shitty river conditions, have sent me in search of something to do during the dog days. So a few months ago I got back into a friends Bass boat and got bit by the bug, again. Now, It's on my mind day and night. The last few weeks we've fished a lake that's ranked very high for it's Bass fishing. This is the fourth trip I've made there and it's nothing short of phenomenal. Two weeks ago we got 40 to the boat with several in the 5 to 6 pound range. Yesterday we got 50 to the boat in the 2 to 4 pound range, probably lost as many.  They were in the jumps yesterday and we were waxing them with swim baits. Alot of the fish (when they aren't in the jumps) are offshore hugging the bottom in 30' of water so flies are out. But Who cares! I'm having a blast and I hope some of you aren't throwing in the towel just because the caney is the new Opryland.


Me too....Hell, I sold the jet and bought a Ranger. I might start WWE and NASCAR. Call me if you to go.

Mike, you should come down and fish Guntersville / Pickwick  :o It's so crowded that guys pull up on to the ledge or hump you are fishing and fish the other side or end of it. I know it's much worse on rivers and creeks. We have a outfitter running (canoe hatch) on the Flint River. It's screwed for the most part. I can't wait for Football and deer season to start. I do not know how these rivers keep producing the kinda fish they do. They get freaking hammered! Todd Taylor

General Discussion / caught in lightning
« Last post by icthus on Yesterday at 08:50:02 AM »
Had the chance to get out the last two nights and two nights in a row you would have thought God was having a dance party with all the flashes of lightning in the sky.  I am still amazed on how bad the weathermen can be given all the technology they have.  The weather channel was showing no rain, local weather was showing rain only in the north counties, and as I stood and breathed lightning and rain were coming down on us.  Bummer because the triple tail are on the lights and that is some good eats.  First world problems for sure, but still frustrating.

On the flip side, there seems to be three days of diving in my future so hopefully fish will be on the menu the next couple of nights.  The dive today is at the local pass.  A pal of mine has been getting broke off by some pretty big grouper, so we are going to try to get his hooks back today.  :)

Mike, have you thought about a little get together this fall????

Just pal-ling out loud.  Have a great weekend!

Years ago I started making "swim baits" for clients who tell me that they can handle a 9wt and up to 400 grain heads with no problem. But then can't manage to get the head out of the rod tip, let alone 60+ feet from the boat.... Here, try this spinning rod with a heavy "fly" that I made just for you.  Oh, wow that's much better is the usual response. Nobody likes to admit defeat, and they hate even more to pay for it. This is usually a win win.

Dude, there's nothing wrong with a green fish!  You can still tie some crazy stuff up and hop around in 30' on braid and mono on a longer spinning rod.  I tied up some crazy purple and pink bunny junk for some "kids" two years ago and they killed it amongst their peers using swim baits and all the trendy stuff in a fruit jar tournament.   Show them something they've never seen at depth.  I've never Shakira shaking it in my living room... but I Guaranmoaf'ntee you I'd try to bite it. 

You still got your Aquasox?  Surfstyle top and Oakley's?  Requisite for good luck when getting back on the stick for green fishes.

between the crowds for mostly dinks and having a jet boat, I have turned my attention to Carp, love those creatures, plus I get my trout fix done when I hit natural waters in the west, trout fix coming up soon :)
