This area has everything from beautiful parks and full service marina's with plenty of restaurants and housing from apartments and condo's thru small single family houses up to waterfront estates. The north part is up at main street and sanders ferry road parallels Drakes creek as it flows toward the main stem of the Cumberland river and Old hickory lake. Once on Sanders ferry road just off main street there are gas stations, restaurants, and other small business's then you'll see Mallard point park on the left. It is one of the most busy of the ramps in the area. As you travel down further you'll pass two big full service marina's and then you turn left to stay on sanders ferry road and then you enter sanders ferry park . Which is a huge (several hundred acres) park with the biggest launch pad around. There is always plenty of houses for sale in every price range and as you can see you have your choice of a wide variety of options to chose from. This is a much busier peninsula than Indian Lake what with the extra people coming into the restaurants, marina's, and other amenities that are offered here. Still, when you get off the two busy roads it is relativity quiet area..... if you like being close to the action, this is your spot! Once again this peninsula allowed for commercial development whereas Indian lake didn't. John and Debbie http://debbiemeyers.realtor
Hendersonville tn April 13, 2016 Fished from 2 pm thru 6 pm , water temp 61 degree's calm wind (practically no wind) and overcast skies. Ended up catching 12 fish, nothing spectacular and I would say the bite was slow. Spent some time on the main lake off bayshore drive and caught 'em along the chunk rock banks.... 5 bass, 5 gill's ,1 crappie, 1 catfish mostly caught on a 1/4 oz spinnerbait.
Hendersonville is known as the "city by the lake" because a good bit of Old Hickory lake borders it. There is no less than 9 launch areas that I frequent and they are all free to launch your boat! There is good fishing to be found at all of them, also there is plenty of opportunity for shore fishing as most of the boat ramps are in nice parks that the city of Hendersonville maintains.
Hendersonville, Wednesday April 6th Fished from 9:30am - 12:30pm , Water temp. was 58 degrees and the winds were a whippin' 20 mph with gusts up to 45mph! Definitely not a day for a novice to be out there. I stayed in the cove where I launched and fished spots that have produced well in the past and was not disappointed. I had with me 4 rods that were rigged and ready to go, and I started first with a small 1/4 oz spinner bait and immediately started catching bass up shallow in the grass/weeds. I had a milk run of 4 or 5 keys spots that I was working so with the spinner bait I could move pretty fast and then I switched to rod #2 which had a crawdad crankbait and I worked over a rock point thoroughly and BAM - 5 quality bass in about 20 minutes. Here's one of them : I was marking some nice large schools of fish in the 8 - 12 foot range so I switched to rod #3 which had on a 1/8 jig with a 3" grub and ended up catching 5 crappie topping out about 13". By now the wind was wearing me out and I finished up by moving out of the wind and using #4 rod rigged with a small jig and used small minnows - had a few takers but missed them 🙂 ... But that was fine because I was more than ready to load up and head home for some lunch. Hopefully next time the wind will be down so I can get around to more of my proven springtime spots and report more of what is going on in those area's. Thanks for reading and Good Luck on YOUR fishing! John
