One word. Windy. Sustained winds from the north at 10 - 15 mph with gusts to 25. Add a southerly dam release of 100k per second and you get rollers on the main channel. This really limited our options of where to fish. At least the flatheads are waking up from their winter slumber. The surface temp is now back above 50.

This one was 20.8 lbs and inhaled our live bluegill suspended underneath the boat.

As the day wore on, so did the increase in wind speed. We took shelter at the mouth of the Paint Rock River and cast cut bluegill back into the Tn River. This one was sneaky. He had already taken my bait and then swam over and took the bait from our second rod. At first we thought we had a double hookup, but it was one fish on two rods. 12.4 lbs.

We decided to go explore and try to find some rare calm water. One small area of about 100 yards long was the best we could do. But it gave up a 7 lb blue for Elijah to reel in.

Sunday my boat partner and I went looking at Tennessee acreage for his retirement home. He is going to place a bid on 35 acres this week. Big Swan Creek borders one side of the property. Plum full of small bass and other fish.

NIce post - nice fish.

Tell him to buy the land. Beautiful part of the country!

Grew up north of Gadsden, out in the country on the Coosa River. Hunted and fished Weiss, Scottsboro and Guntersville growing up.

take care,
Ken
