I just got back. 2 fish before the cold, hard, rain (who predicted this!?) chased me off; 1 little LM and a SM that went about 4 pounds. LM on grub, SM on shakey head worm, both fish in about 8 feet of water.
Baker's Creek. The 2 fish I caught were in 8-10 feet of water. I couldn't get bit deeper. The SM was definitely actively feeding, it nearly ripped the rod out of my hand when it hit.
I work 2 miles from Baker's Creek and fish it a couple afternoons each week. I have a handful of spots that consistently produce fish. I didn't get to fish my favorite spot today due to the weather. My favorite spot produces for me year-round.
Hey Z-91, we met friday afternoon at the Poplar Branch? boat launch. Tellico is a tough lake. IMO when the water reaches the high 40s through post-spawn, its pretty good, sometimes great. At other times it is rough, I've have a hard time patterning the fish,
I got my butt kicked this morning. 1 tiny LM before the thunder and downpour. My best spots didn't produce.
