Bull Shoals June 1, 2 and 3

I was there late April so probably not very current for you. Look up Del Colvin on YouTube - he posts a very detailed fishing report on Bull Shoals about every 2 weeks. You can look up the week you're going from prior years as well. I found his reports very helpful when I was there ?

It's about 20ft. high. Seems like the Corp has been pulling a lot of water from Beaver into Table Rock and holding it in Bull Shoals. Not unusual, but you may want to check on finding an open ramp.

Got lucky with the weather and the fish! My brother and I caught over 100 smallmouth,

6 walleye and a dozen largemouth. The brown bass were all 2-3 lbs and my biggest

green bass was around 4 lbs. Caught a few on the GYCB Kreature, but the vast majority

were caught on a Gitzit.

Sounds good. Curious how the overall size of the brown bass compare to your local waters like Pickwick this time of year?  I went to Bull Shoals this Spring and have thought of returning next year, or possibly down your way instead.  Thx!

TN smallmouth are generally larger and occasionally MUCH larger. A few years ago

my guide, Tim "hotdawg" Curtis, and his friend came over to Pickwick for two days. I

put them both on Personal Bests, 7.4 lbs and 6.75 lbs.

 

For numbers you don't need to travel. However, your chances for a 6+ are much greater 

on the Tennessee River. I recommend November when the weather is more consistent

and the big girls have the feed bag on!  November is still autumn in the Mid South.

I bought several bags years ago and still using them . They are kind of root beer colored and I use a chartreuse marker on the tail . Smallmouth love the things . Caught some largemouths on it just yesterday .

Thanks Kent, good recommendations. Yes, we do catch numbers here in Minnesota but since our season doesn’t open in the spring until mid-May I’m very willing to drive to find good fishing in March/April. November could be a possibility too since that’s about when we ice up. Definitely have Pickwick and Tenn waters on my radar!!

You are invited to fish with me and you can leave your boat at home!

I would love too!  Hopefully my wife's health turns the corner soon and I hope to be down your way late this Fall or next spring.  Thx!
