      Ugh, jerkbaits are my kryptonite! Don't have any idea how to fish them. Also have zero confidence in them, which does make a difference.

      @LivewellHero yep that's sucks. But it's still nice getting out in the water even when things go all to crap

    8. Jeremy Payne 0
      @LivewellHero yea your right but not many people want to tear their boat up by getting in and out. Plus. A lot more people are releasing these big girls
    9. Christian Holyoak 0
      I might just have to take you up on that offer lol. Whenever I'm back up there... I still have yet to get my first smallie on an artificial. Someday...

      @LivewellHero don't be jealous. Give me a call and I will put you on em. Lol
    11. Christian Holyoak 0
      Ooh that sounds like an amazing lake. Sounds to me like there would be so many big fish in there because of how hard to access it is
    12. Jeremy Payne 0
      @LivewellHero I have fished there all my life we normally fish it in the summer and fall But recently have found that it is awesome in the winter
    13. Jeremy Payne 0
      It has a small ramp and very very very hard to get in and out due to turbulence from the hiwassee dam. You really have to know what you are doing or you will really ...more get hurt
    14. Jeremy Payne 0
      This doesn't even start to prove it. It's a small lake on six or seven miles long. Smallies have been caught there recently over 7 lbs. and largemouth ...more over 12 lbs
