Plenty of big bass in Birdsong Creek. Brook Lathram caught this one late Thursday afternoon (November 5) flipping the Birdsong Marina dock with a Strike King Rage Craw on a 3/16 oz. jig hook.
The Tennessee River lakes are home to more than 100 main species of fish, about 20 of which are caught regularly. These lakes, especially Kentucky Lake, are justifiably famous for crappie, bluegill, catfish, stripers, sauger, and largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass.
Artificial fish attractors – everything from old tires to great brush piles to stake beds – have been constructed in nearly all major creeks holding at least 10 feet of water. The attractors create a habitat for small fish; the small fish in turn lure the larger ones. A study conducted in Kentucky Lake by fishery biologists revealed that one acre of brush in a fish attractor averaged nearly 3,000 bluegill, 1,500 crappie, 580 catfish, and two largemouth bass.
If you are looking for a great place to stay and a great place to fish – look no further than Birdsong Resort & Marina. Call 731-584-7880 to reserve your home away from home.
Bill Lawrence did not get many bites today but caught the biggest bass of his life. 11lbs. 2 ounces. She was full of eggs so I let her go to make more just like her with the genetics to get as big as she has. It was a great day fishing with Jake Lawrence.
