Anybody Want To Share Some Spots On Percy Priest Lake

Recommended Posts

I am looking for some spots on Percy Priest Lake for each of the seasons. I am having trouble finding some good solid spots.

Why dont you ask someone to fish with you or you fish with them. Most guys are not going to hand over spots. Example... I spent my gas and my time sunday driving around my local lake while its lowered marking structure thats not visible when the water is up. Im not giving those points to even my best friends.

One of my favorite places to fish...  There are seriously so many great spots on the lake. 

 

Around Cook public use area there are some flats (go right coming out of the landing) back in some coves that are about 5 - 8 foot deep that drop off to 20ish feet at the main lake points there, one of the most productive spots on the lake... Wacky rigged senkos (black, blue flake) and jigs during the summer.  Jerk baits worked like a crank on a medium retrieve, cast them up shallow and slow roll them back over the rock drop offs during the spring and early summer... they'll tear them up.  That cove holds fish all spring and summer, lots of fish, you can limit there quickly if you hit it right. 

 

The bluff that runs south from party cove... flip 1/4 ounce jigs down the bluff walls pre-spawn, there is a big spawning flat directly south of the wall, so the fish move back and forth along that wall all spring.  It gets shallower as it runs towards the flat, so if you can figure out where they're at, you can do well pre-spawn.

 

There's a big creek that opens up directly south east of that spawning flat and the two main lake points there are great spots - they get a lot of pressure though.  There is an old road bed that runs on the south side of that creek that can hold fish too, another great pre-spawn "highway" if you will. 

 

I love fishing Percy Priest, the main lake points and abundance of structure make it awesome; however, it can also make it a pain in the butt to find where they are because there are so many good spots that seem like they should hold fish.  Fish the conditions, definitely try some of the spots I mentioned, especially that first one (I oughtta charge for that piece of advice) and find the shad.  Good luck, hope this helps you out some.

I've landed many good fish, including my biggest smallmouth (22 in), walking the bank at Lamar Hill. Especially when the water is down. There's just something special about all those rocks. If  you have a boat then Jefferson Springs is great, too. The rock wall across from the launch ramp always produces good fish for me on jigs. Hang a right and go under the bridge and there's another very long rock wall that's good, too. There are also tons of striper around there that like 1oz rooster tails. Good luck.
