Current conditions on Priest
Would like to start of saying, I’m pretty new to the Nashville area. I am an avid fisherman, but haven’t really gotten into bass fishing until the last year or so. I’ve been fishing priest hard over the last month or so, and got into a pretty consistent rhythm of catching fish when I went out. But this was when the water was still in the upper 70’s and weather was largely overcast, and water clarity was what seemed to be the norm for priest. Up until the last few days I’ve done well on shaky heads with space monkeys and rattle traps off points in 5-10 ft of water. Had success with the same technique around the channel bend in front of Hong Kong island and the boulders in the cut through at LaVergne pump house. Yesterday using similar tactics, along with a few others, I was fishless aside from one half pound smallie. I have noticed water clarity seems to be clearer, it’s was very sunny, and and water temp was in the mid 80’s. I’m I still fishing the right general areas and techniques for conditions and the bite is just off, or do I need to start looking deeper with the warmer water? And help would be appreciated.
