    Brian what section do u have the best luck with small mouth? Upper, middle or lower portion of the lake? I have a few spots between Pools Knob and just past Hobson Pk bridge but never alot of luck in upper or lower. There has been some random ones but nothing consistent.

    I usually fish for smallies above the Hobson pike bridge. The islands across from the beach consistently hold smallies. I also like Suggs Creek. Looks for either chunk rock mixed with gravel or gravel banks. Some of the bluffs hold smallies too.

    Yea most the spots I fish are chunk rock or gravel beds. Asually jigs 3/4 / 1oz spinner bait in black an blue skirt blue colorado blade. With a #11 black pork frog. My favorite spot the boat is in 60/68ft and I make long cast into 6ft working out to around 20 keeping the boat in the channel. This is a 1am spot. Do y’all catch more at night or day time. 80% night for me.

    Sorry guys, I posted early and totally forgot to reply. Most of my smallmouth come around Hobson Pike. During March – May the main lake points hold a lot of smallies as well as the islands on both sides of the bridge. I like to fish with shaky heads and red crankbaits around in the big boulder rock on the points and islands…..these are the high percentage areas. In March I fish 8-12ft on average and in April and May 4ft-8ft.

    I also like to fish in Hamilton Creek. If you read old post from April and May your see where we caught a lot on the shaky heads with trick worms and lizards and A-rigs around the points and pockets near sail boat cove and Anderson boat ramp.

    I don’t fish a lot past Elm Hill, but know that is a strong area as well.

    I’ve never “tore up tackle” on smallies but the few I have caught have been in Hamilton Creek and around Bear Island. Also, everyone I’ve caught has been on a jerkbait or tube.

    My best luck is on big blades and jigs. Black blue purple and red. Work both off the bottom.
