  • Watts Bar Lake trip

    Did a little R&R trip down to E Tenn at Watts Bar Reservoir, this past weekend. Took my buddy & site member Paul with me, and stayed at the Arrowhead Marina/Resort. Great place to stay & good people to do business with !!

    Water temps were still warm ... generally around 67deg surface temps.
    Sunny skies & calm North to Northeast winds prevailed.
    Shad schools were all over ... mostly running from 5-10ft deep.
    Crappie, on the other hand, were not that shallow

    Dock shooting only gave us one 11" White Crappie.

    We were forced to "hunt" for submerged trees that the tops extended into water depths of 25' or more. We found two such trees, on two different days, and managed to pull around 15 Crappie (total) from those trees. Most were Blacknose, and ranged in the 12-13" lengths.

    Me showing the thick backed Blacknose

    Middle fish is a 10" White Crappie (for comparison)

    Paul showing off a couple 13" Blacknose

    Not as many fish as we would have liked to catch, but we can't complain about the quality/size ... especially given the conditions.
