JC and headed out for Stripers. Drifted eels at the #10 buoy east of the high rise. Got there at high tide as soon as the tide picked up it was on!!!
Caught five, released three all were 45 pound class fish with one tipping the scales at 63 pounds!!!! The 63 pounder was caught on my Penn Live Liner spooled w/20 pound test mono, a 6/0 Gamakatsu Octopus circle hook, 50 pound mono leader, under a free lined bobber and on a tiny 6" eel. It took 40 minutes to get her safely in the net, when she first swirled (25 min into the fight) just under the surface the swirl looked like an outboard taking off. From the swirl alone we knew she was HUGE!!! What really sucked is she took me around the boat at least six times went from port to stbd and back across the bow at least eight times and every time she would change directions I could feel her massive tail hitting the leader as she pulled drag trying to swim off... nerve racking to say the least. More details to come!!! We got it all on video and that will be coming soon as well!!! AWESOME NIGHT!!!

Thanks JC for the trip and fish of a lifetime!!! "DO WORK"!!!

Fly & Light Tackle Fishing Guide


The fishing is becoming more productive each day and the larger fish are finally starting to move in.

Most Productive Lure: 7" Bass Assassin, Chartreuse Glitter rigged on a 1 to 1 1/2 ounce jighead.

Most Productive Technique:
After locating the fish, drift across them and cast out. Count the lure down, keep the rod tip just above the water, moving it from 12 o'clock to 10 o'clock horizontally while jigging. You are swimming the lure past the fish rather than jigging above them.
NOTE: Vertical jigging was not very productive.

Team Smack went to Lake Cumberland last weekend. Found the stripers in the jumps in the back end of a creek arm. The stripers were keyed in on small 2 inch threadfin shad. The only lure they would hit was the Shallow Gizz 3. We tried Gizz 4's but the stripers would only follow it back to the boat. We caught several stripers in the 10 to 12 lb range. That night we fished the same area. Todd caught 3 on Deep Diving Red Head Gizz 4's. I got the skunk on me that night. The next day, went back to the same area. The conditions had changed with cloudy skies and very windy. We tried some bottom fishing but only caught 2 channel cats. We fished that area again that night with Deep Diving Red Heads but didn't get a bite. We tried the main lake but skunked there also. We then headed to the mouth of another creek and we both caught nice stripers on Deep Diving Red Head Gizz 4's. The last day, we went back to the mouth of the creek we fished the night before. Got there and see birds diving. It's a small school of stripers that were moving fast. We couldn't keep up with them so we left them and tried to find the birds again. Didn't find the birds, but did find a school of stripers busting shad on the surface. We fished this school off and on for 3 hrs. The shallow Gizz 3 was the only lure they would hit again. We ended up catching many stripers until it got dark and the school went down. We fished this same area at night again with the Deep Diving Red Head Gizz 4's and Todd got two more nice stripers. Here is the biggest one I caught when the stripers were in the jumps. Note the Shallow Gizz 3 in the fishes mouth.

Tony, Wayne, Don and I headed out to see if we could find some more nice Rockfish. It was a bit slow today for us we missed four fish and managed to scrape out one fish for Tony his personal best, a 48” 44 pound Striper.

Drifted eels from the 4a to the highrise outgoing tide 48.9 degree water. Slow day for us we missed four fish due to one particular eel that kept hooking himself???

Thanks to Don Tony and Wayne!!!
