Old Hickory Lake fishing report Nashville Tennessee

Nice size crappie caught on crankbait while trolling

Wednesday May 18 2016 , Hendersonville,Tn                                                                    Good fishing to report just downstream of bluegrass marina in the various coves. Water temp dropped back down to mid-60’s and the large female Crappie are staging in 10 – 14 feet of water in good numbers. I caught some nice ones up to 15 inches trolling a crankbait around known spawning areas. Another fun way of catching them is using the wind to drift thru an area and dragging a small jig and/ or minnow.                                                                 I don’t know why but it seems this year the big females are coming in later to spawn.  I have been catching plenty of Crappie for a good while but until recently they have been small….   so if you can, get out there and do some fishin’ !!                                                                                                           John
