May River Fishing

After a couple weeks off of crappie spawning we decided to run the Tennessee river in the tail race below Chickamauga Dam. Good rainfall had the flow around 25,000 and the weather was sunny and calm otherwise. We really didn’t set the river on fire but I managed to hook a couple of beautiful smallies and one cranky catfish before the daylight ran out. Nothing special other than a great evening on the water.

Jig Fishing Lands Monster Catfish on Tennessee River

We’ve been takingĀ  shots at the schooling white bass for a couple of weeks. The other night my buddy went after them and his friend hooked up with this fatty on a grub! Fishing with grubs and jigs for white bass and shad is a great way to get in some fishing both late and early in the fishing season while fish are aggressively feeding on schools of bait.
