2/27/2011 Skunk

I made it out this morning but did not catch any. We had a pretty good rain Thursday night so all of the rivers around middle TN were high. I decided to fish on Percy Priest lake. I was only out for two hours but didn't have much luck. I was racing to get home to help out the wife when I realized while loading my boat up I forgot my milk crate with my lures. It wasn't all of my lures but it was around $75-$100 dollars of stuff I did not want to replace. I walked in the door realized I forgot it and took back off for the 20 minute ride to see if someone decided to pick up my crate. After the 20 minute ride trying to come up with excuses on why I need to go spend money replacing stuff that I was dumb enough to leave behind I saw my stuff sitting on the boat ramp. I had big plans on showing off my new camera mount and video mount with monster fish but it didn't work that way. Instead here are pictures of the set up. I got my idea for the mounts from a video from on of the guys on RiverBassin. Thanks Paw Paw.

2-21-2010 Stones River

I made it out today and tested out the NuCanoe. It went great. I was comfortable for the 4 hour trip and the fish decided they liked the YUM grub.

Temp: 60s
Weather: Overcast
Wind: 15-20 mph
Water: Did not get a reading but I could stand in it.

I ended up catching a 16" largemouth about 5 minutes into the trip. The next fish was only about 12". After that the day was sight seeing bacuse the fish did not want what I had.

The river was down because the lake is at winter pool. There is a lot of brush that looked good. Next time I'll take an ultralight to check for crappie.
Here is my NuCanoe setup.

 I'm adding a camera and a video mount. I'll post pictures later.
Until next trip.

Well winter seems to have let up a bit and I’m looking to hit the water. I recently bought a 10’ NuCanoe and plan on hitting the river soon. I spent last weekend setting up the NuCanoe, cleaning up the reels, organizing the tackle, and wishing I was on the water. This year I plan on fishing the Stones River, Whites Creek, Mill Creek, Caney Fork, Mansker Creek, and the Harpeth River. I also have trips planned to the Buffalo River for some early spring small mouth fishing. I plan on using this blog to keep up with my fishing reports and post pictures and videos. If time allows I will also fish as many of the RiverBassin Tournaments as possible.  Here is a link to 2011 RiverBassin Tournament Trail .
