  • Epic day for shellcracker.

    Epic day at Nickajack! Hit the lake at 8:00 a.m and started looking for bedding fish. Found a bed of shell cracker bedding in 2 feet of water. I cast to those fish for 40 minutes and only got one. I have run into this before.....bedding shellcracker are subject to get lockjaw at sometime during the spawn. So I just went to work scanning with the Helix Mega si and found plenty of beds out in the middle of the bay I was fishing. After I had boated 60 shellcracker decided it was time to go. Did a quick check of my video and found the audio was corrupted. Needless to say I was ticked. So I just went back to work and found more beds. Boated another 40 shellcracker and called it a day after 6.5 hours on the water. I never intended to fish that long but you keep finding fish and you donít want to leave. Plus this isnít going to last long. All fish caught using a Fine Tail Banshee Area Trout Rod Super Ultra 6 foot model. Used a Daiwa Gekkabijin 1.5 gram jig head #8 hook with a Sow Bug colored Trout Magnet. Ninety nine of my shellcracker came out of water 5 foot deep. Line today was 2.1# test ester mono and a 5 foot section of 2# test Phantom FC leader. Most fish were in between the 9-10 inch range with a couple at 10.5 inches. Life is good!

      WTG in adjusting to conditions but must have been hard to leave beds you could see to go hunting in deeper water. Most folks don't do that so nice work and what a great day!
