Old Hickory Lake fishing report – Nashville Tennessee

Wednesday May 17,2016 , Hendersonville,Tn

This big girl hit like a freight train on my light action rod and 8 lb line. Caught her on the inside edge of a point leading to a known spawning area.
Most people would never believe that a small jig head hook could withstand a large fish. I have caught bass up to 7lb’s on a little 1/16 oz jighead.

Was out today fishing from am till 10 am. ¬†Went straight to main lake points and caught about a dozen largemouth anchored by a nice 6Lber. Water temp low 60’s and a nice light wind with some clouds. 10′ seemed to produce the best and only had time to fish a couple spots. Went into a cove to check shallow crappie areas and did catch a few with one nice one. Trolled deeper water and caught 4. All in all a great morning on the lake. Very nice quiet morning – seemed unbelievable to have such solitude when I know in town in was a huge rat race. If you can NOW is the time to get ’em as they are in all the predictable places. … get our there and get “em!
