Good Day on the Hill today-Started out with a nice  DT6 Red Craw and Deon bite-They would nail it. (Better get you some)  www.rapala.com After the Crankbait bite went away I caught the remained on a VMC Weedless Finesse Jig www.vmchooks.com and soft plastics. Sufix 6lb mono on the crankbaits and 10lb Sufix 832 Braid with a 6lb VMC Fluorocarbon leader.  46 degree water and good color. Get out your snow shovel it sound like we are going to need it Sunday Morning. Rick McFerin  www.tennesseebassguides.com

Ronnie and I fished from 7:00am until 11:30am without bite one! Nothing-zero-nada-goose egg! They were pulling the water hard enough that it would continually pull your boat out and down stream. The generation stopped and from 11:30am until 12:30 we had 7 bites-5 in the boat (4 like the bottom pic) and one pushing 4. Ronnie needed to go so we loaded the boat and headed home. Everything on a VMC Finesse Weedless Jig and soft plastics www.vmchooks.com . I believe that I  found a pattern if could have stayed-or at least I’ like to believe that. More the end of the week.

Ronnie and I fished from 6:30 until 11:15 and had  11 Spot/Largemouth mix. I fished an additional hour and had the 2 that you see me holding above. We caught a couple early on a DT6 Red Craw www.rapala.com then switched over to a VMC Finesse Weedless Jig and soft plastics and caught the rest. www.vmchooks.com Ronnie was using *8b Sufix Mono and I was using Sufix 10lb Braid and a 6lb Sufix Fluorocarbon leader www.sufix.com. The bite was extremely light , most of the time you didn’t see a twitch-slack line nothing-just a subtle heaviness.  Thanks for visiting my site. Rick McFerrin www.tennesseebassguides.com

Best of 11 that Ronnie and I had on Normandy this morning on a Rapala DT6 Red Craw www.tennesseebassguides.com . LOT’S of color and differing water temps as high as 54 degrees and as low as 48 degrees. I got Ronnie to try Sufix 6lb mono several years ago and he is a walking commercial for how great the line is. If you haven’t tried it pick some up and you will be hooked to.  Rick McFerrin www.tennesseebassguides.com

Here are 6 pictures that I have been holding back because of a tournament that Bill and Braxton fished this pass week end. Bill is holding 4 that we  (he) caught (I was a good net guy) on a Float N Fly and the other 2  pics are of  Braxton on tournament day. Their club has a 3 fish limit which is great and these 3 Smallmouth won them 2nd place and a good payday in their club fish off.  Billy and I also had several smaller Smallmouth on soft plastics. Once again I was using a VMC Weedless Finesse Jig www.vmchooks.com on Sufix Yellow Braid with a Sufix Fluorocarbon leader. Headed to Center Hill to fish with Billy this morning and the actual air temp here at 4:38am is 22 degrees. Burrrrr! Rick McFerrin www.tennesseebassguides.com

This is a 2 day report. The gentleman that is holding the Smallmouth is Robert Markham-2 years ago he had a heart transplant and now he is doing great. Robert gives all the glory to God for his recovery-and that’s where it all belongs. We caught either 7 or 8 with the 3 being our best. The pictures on the floor was from yesterday on Center Hill. My camera wouldn’t work and I don’t like taking pictures this way but there wasn’t another option. I took a few and skipped the rest. Everything we caught on Tim’s was on soft plastics. I caught 3 yesterday on a Rapala Skitter Walk www.rapala.com  and 6 others on soft plastics rigged on a VMC Weedless Finesse  Jig head. I lost 2 other heavy fish that I never saw.  I also caught a 6 or 8 5 to 6 inch Smallmouth-there is a ton of them in Center Hill-good for years to come. www.vmchooks.com.   Sorry for the pics-In a new camera hunt today.
