    Today was a great day bass fishing on Percy Priest Lake! I fished with two great guys, one who has been out with me over 6 times.

    We started fishing the hump on the right just before the Weakley Lane bridge(heading up lake). The hump starts about 50 yards off the rip rap point. I usually start with my boat in 16ft-20ft and cast into 10ft-12ft. This morning we used flukes and poppers when the schooling bass would come to the surface and c-rigs with green pumpkin/red flake. In 1 hour we caught 8, including 2 keepers.

    Next we moved to the long point on the right at the mouth of Lamar Hill. Sitting in 18ft, we cast into 8ft and dragged slowly back. I try to keep my boat a cast distance from the PVC pole. Near the pole there several rocks and brushpiles. We only caught 1 short fish there. With not much activity we decided to move.

    We motored to Fall Creek and headed straight to the back near the 840 bridge. Fishing with poppers and trick worms with a spit shot 12″ up the line, we caught 4 bass casting to the shaded banks in 3ft-5ft. There was a ton of fry back!

    We headed back down lake to Sister Cove and fished the mouth near the green buoy. Casting our c-rigs again we caught one bass on our first cast and then nothing the next 20 minutes. There were shad all over the graph in 10ft-14ft near the bottom. I really thought we were going to catch a bunch there, but after 20 minutes of trying to get them to bite we packed it up.

    The big point on the left at Jones Mill was our next target. We sat in 30ft and cast into 16ft with our c-rigs. In 30 minutes we caught 3, including another keeper. Green pumpkin with purple and green flake appeared to be the ticket.

    I took a ride to the long point off the left of Hong Kong Island. Again, we sat in the channel around 25ft-40ft and cast into 12ft-20ft with our soft plastics. We caught 3 more that came out of 15ft. I lost a nice one on a Strike King jig(1/2oz brown and green) and my client lost a 3.5lb at the boat when the line snapped!

    Lastly, we fished the long point on the right going into Stewarts Creek. In one hour we caught 6, including 2 more keepers on our finesse c-rigs and my jig. The fish were right on the channel drop and would come to the surface every few minutes. I appeared if you could get your bait near them they would bite.

    It was a great day on the lake. The longest we went without a bite was 45 minutes and we almost caught fish at every spot!!!!

    It seemed like everybody picked a fish off each major spot here and there. I broke off 2 before Brian moved onto the long point and caught 2 keepers.

    Is Sister Cover the one with the abandoned boat ramp or is the next one going south on the east side just above Fate Sanders?

    Sorry for my ignorance, but what is a rip rap point?

    Chunk rock stacked on an embankment to stop erosion. It is usually found around roadways and bridges.
