Hey everyone, as the title suggests, I am looking for pointers for Tennessee fishing this time of year - specifically Percy Priest as I will be in the Nashville area for a week. Now, I have been looking over a few reports to gain a rough idea of what stage these bass are in, but as far as areas are concerned (as my time is limited and I will NOT be bringing my boat), any advice?  

 

Again, I am going down with a group of friends (9 in total) so the majority of time will be spent sight seeing during the day, and hitting the nightlife at night, but the basshead in me won't let me go down there without some gear and equipment and at least spend a few hours fishing. Plus, ice has Michigan covered so why not land my first bass of 2018 in TN?!

 

I appreciate any and all insight!

It's pretty tough right now, we had a big shad kill a couple weeks ago when the lake froze.  The fish are pretty keyed on dead shad.  I may go saturday, not sure yet.  If I do, I'll be throwing a shad rap, jerkbait, a-rig or blade bait.

Alright. Thanks for the information. I'll be heading down in a few hours and only have room for a rod and one sleeve. I've got a few finesse items, but I'm mostly bringing exactly what you mentioned. Figured cold water bass in TN fish similar to MI. Pretty much the same items I use after ice out.

 

Thanks!
