Default North Alabama fall run...part 2

took a couple of hours off work tuesday and hit wilson dam.
we fished from 4:15p.m. until just after 7:00.
totals for the day were 56...most were in the 6-8 pound range with a couple of 10's...all on jigs in the tailrace and all released.









the action yesterday below wheeler dam wasn't as hot....a handfull of salts, a couple of smallish smallies and this largemouth.



the tailrace striper bite should be good to better over the next 2 months

slo ride,

Sounds like you had a great day. Ever ballon a jack while your fishing around those dams? It wont catch as many fish, but if you want bubba on the end of your line, its the way to go.

nope...i've read/thought about it, though.
unfortunately bubba isn't below the dams down here this time of year...he's still up in the creeks.
i'm seriously thinking about giving it a try next spring, though.

where do you fish in Tennessee?

Yeah, I guess that far downstream, the water is too warm right now, but the pigs will be up there before winter, and definetly in the spring. All of my fishing is done in east tennessee. Of the fishing I do on the Tennessee most of it is done below the first dam on the river.
You should really try the jacks when the water cools. They are THE best freshwater striper bait by far and are worth any trouble (if there is any) to get them. The only drawback to the jacks is they are mostly a "catch and use" bait, meaning transportation is pretty much impossible unless youve got the proper setup. However, the stripes are usually not far away, so its not really an issue.

Never have fished Nickajack, but Im sure it would be well worth your time. Only reason is Ive got lakes/rivers just as good only 20 miles round trip instead of 200. If you fish with that cut bait i wouldnt be suprised if you dont pull in a striped catfish ;)

Pardon my ignorance, but what are you referring to as "jacks?" Chain Pickeral?
