Have caught trout up on accident up there fairly shallow while bass fishing. Mostly on jerkbaits and cranks. Ive heard you can really get on them during this time of year anybody have any tips?

Anytime i go to watauga i'm only targeting walleye or lake trout. Lakers will come up shallow in the wintertime. I catch them on jigging spoons around 35 feet and reeling in silver buddies suspended around 15 feet of water. Your best bet would be to troll countdowns or spoons but since the limit is only two i just locate them on my sonar and jig for them. They would probably hit a deep suspended jerkbait or swimbait. Down around rat branch is a good area and around little milligan ramp as well. I do better on south holston. Look for flatter points with a dropoff nearby and stumpbeds.
