Percy Priest 6/30 and 7/1


The good news is the lake is on fire, the bad news is the kayaks, ski boats, and jet skis are almost upon us. By 1030 the boat ramp has been a cluster flop of the 3 day a year boaters, Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day. Be careful around these folks as they, for the most part, do not possess the skill set to back a trailer, load, or unload a boat. The will run into you and it will be your fault…


Both days fished great and we had the lake to ourselves for the first 4 hours of daylight each day. The Crappie had moved up into shallow water when the lake came up. They were feeding on small shad from about daylight until 10 in the morning.  We caught a lot of fish, of which probably 50% were to short to keep but they were a blast to catch.



Slow trolling jigs in 10-12 feet of water was all it took to get bit.  Today the main course was Kalins triple threat grubs in Tennessee shad and bright orange. The fish are changing constantly so you cant stick with a single color bait very long.
