Default New to Nashville

Hello All,
I just moved up to Franklin, TN from Atlanta. I'm thrilled to
be in an area with such an outstanding variety of great striper,
and great fishing all around. I fish Old Hickory mostly,
as it's the closest striper lake to me, mostly the tailwaters below the dam
and the Steam Plant in the winter (my wife is from Franklin so I've
travelled here for many years before we got married!) and the Harpeth for
smallmouth year around. I have to say that I was a bit surprised that
there wasn't more activity on this forum, given how great the fishery
is here in Middle Tennessee. I'm always looking for a fishing buddy to head out
on the water with. Perhaps you all could give me a bit of advice
on how things work here in Tennessee. I catch skipjack without
fail and cast net gizzard and threadfin shad. Great bait, not too
many stripers! Ive tried suspending under a bobber, three way
bottom rigging, buck tail jigging, and downlining but haven't had
much luck. I don't have a boat up here yet, perhaps
this will help! Any guidance from the Tennessee
contingent would be much appreciated!

Hey whats going on?

I fish most of the areas you have mentioned.....

If you fished below the dam this summer Im sure you have seen me out there, most of the methods you mentioned do work, but to really get to them you do need a boat or a jet ski as I use a jet ski in the summer time to fish the spillways........I use the ski if I am throwing jigs and the boat when I am using live bait.....

Hi Harry,
Thanks for your reply! Have you posted
some fishing videos on YouTube? If so, then
I've seen them! Fishing from the jet ski looks
awesome. It's been awfully chilly as of late,
but I'm going up to Old Hickory tomorrow with
my nephew and see if we can get him a few
skipjack below the dam or at the steam plant.
I wish there was a place that rented small
boats near OH, because I am familiar with it.
When I get my boat up here, we will have to
hit the water. I'm always up to meet new
friends who love to fish!
