1. Caught three limits of large crappie with my father and grandfather. Also, caught a ton of white bass, yellow stripe, blue gill, and one large perch. Additionally, ...more we caught and released several nice bass in the 2-3 pound range caught on rattle traps and speed craws. Awesome day on the water; fish are shallow and the water is in the 60 degree range; they are in several stages of the spawn. Note the waypoint is not accurate; we were all over the place in possum creek.

      I use red eye shad actually, mostly the sexy shad clear, blue and chrome, and chartreuse in dingy water. Blue and chrome did the trick this time because they are ...more on shad in the back of possum.

    3. caleb bell 0
      most of the fish were in the 1.5 pound and up range. several over 14 in... pretty heavy but did not weigh them.

      Not at all, it is usually on the rise toward the first week of april. This usually gets the majority of crawfish out of hibernation making for great fishing. Everything ...more is a little off right now. But they are still out there :)

      I caught 13 today but couldn't get anything really big. Water is so low. Is this the norm here?

      Well it has actually been tough for me to catch numbers of fish; however the bites I get tend.to be decent ones.

    5 lb. 9 oz. 23 in. largemouth with a Zoom Speed Crawl shakey head


I love my God, my wife, and my children more than anything in the world. Right after that fishing takes the mark; I have always loved to fish ...more for any and all species. With three generations of experience on Chickamauga in mind I can pretty well always find a way to have a blast on the water. From catfish and bluegill to largemouth and crappie our lake provides awesome opportunities. don't hesitate to contact me if you would like any tips or seasonal patterns for success.
