I fish Priest from the bank on a regular basis and from boats for about 20 years now.  I have only caught 3-4 Small mouth, granted 2-3 pounders on that lake. The biggest thing at priest now is the shear volume of people with recreational vehicles using it.

Well I'd start hiring a guide or something so you can learn a little more about the lake.

Yes center does, lake Norris is hot! But there's a lot of boaters out there. Nite fishing is key.....
Tim's ford n Wilson are also both good

You're in a great area for smallies. The Ocoee, the Hiwassee, and their tributaries are all good for smallies. Upper Ft Loudon Lake and above that Chilhowee Lake have some great smallie action. Abrams creek where it empties into Chilhowee and then upstream I great as well, some bigger-than-you'd-ever-believe fish up there. Small jigs, rebel craws, spooks and trick woms or soft jerk baits were all I ever needed.

Rocky areas with some current and/or depth are where you want to be. A little logjam in the creeks all the more better.


PS- Isn't Benton's Smokehouse in Madisonville? That's some good stuff. I used to work with their daughter.

    From a human perspective, they're like Twinkies.

Below Wheeler, Wilson and Pickwick dams in the fall and winter is best.
