Fishing Report – Sunday 10/6
Well, I made a trip out to Old Hickory this past Sunday. I launched my boat at the Douglas Bend Rd (off of Nashville Pike/31E). Being that this was the first time I’d fished this area of Old Hickory, my expectations weren’t that high but sometimes that’s when you have your best days, so I was still optimistic.
With the launch being at the back of the creek (not sure the name of this creek), I decided to start in the back and fish my way towards the mouth, or main lake. The surface temps was 76 at the back of the creek and with the season and bass transitioning I thought I’d try fishing any flats and points located around the creek channel.
All-in-all, it was an okay day. I wasn’t able to establish anything remotely concrete as far as a pattern is concerned. However, I was able to intercept a couple small bass chasing shad which is always fun. I also was able to catch a couple fish pitching a creature bait around docks but nothing that would have kept. Other than that, I did have a bite on a jig that felt more like a cement block was dropped on my bait. I lifted up, felt the weight and set the hook and after about a 1-2 second fight, during which I could barely budge the fish, my 17lb fluorocarbon threw the white flag :shock:. I was puzzled and disappointed as I had never broken this line before. I REALLY wish I could have at least got a glance at whatever it was! Oh well, it happens to the best of us.
