Quick Up Date May 28-2021

I have had several messages asking about different lakes. I have been down in my back-I was having spasms when I would hit a wave. I’m going to a Sports Massage  Therapist and I think I’m turning the corner.  I hope to have some first hand info by the end of next week.  Have a safe weekend on the water—a lot of crazies out there that think they have brakes on the boats.   Rick

Fished Tim’s today with long time friend Tim White. Tim and I trade trips—-3 days on Tim’s with me and then 3 days on Lake Hartwell with Tim.  We stayed busy for 6 hours- catching and releasing 17 Smallmouth-Largemouth-Hybrids and even some very healthy Rock Bass.  I was throwing the same Rapala #8 X Rap that I used last week and it’s still working–  All on 6 or 8lb Sufix mono . More after the trip tomorrow Thank you for visiting my site. Rick McFerrin .

Ken Jenkins and I fished Tim’s this morning from 6:30 until noon and the ones above was our best. Our largest fish came on a #8 Rapala –others on a VMC Darter Head Jig  rigged with a swim bait and a VMC Weedless Finesse Jig and soft plastic.  We had zero wind until 10:15 or so then it picked up some. Sufix Braid and Mono wouldn’t use anything else no matter what. Thanks for visiting my site Rick McFerrin

Pictured above is Lane-Braxton and Jason Braxton’s father. Braxton and Lane finished 2nd out of 129 boats  at Tim’s this past weekend with 5 for 12.84. I’s sorry you can’t see the Smallmouth that they are holding-great fish.  The guys have done real well this year and hope to finish up strong on Dale Hollow this coming week end.  Good job guy’s and good luck Saturday. The guys are currently ranked  4th in the state out of nearly 400 boats.

Fished Tim’s today with long time friend Ron. We threw just about everything at them and a Jerk Bait was by far the the Smallmouth choice this morning.  My best hit a Rapala #10 Olive Green XRap I threw this on the new Neon Lime Sufix 8lb Advance Mono with a 8lb Sufix Fluorocarbon leader The Advance is produced using a Magnetic Extrusion Process which results in a line with superior Abrasion Resistance-Low Stretch and an unbelievable Sensitivity .  I like the visibility of the Neon Lime-you see every twitch-This is a great product-check it out.  Water temp in the mid 50’s and varying visibility depending on where you were at.

Braxton Campbell Center Hill High School Tournament


The pictures above were Braxton’s best 3 on Center Hill last Saturday in his recent high school tournament. Jerk bait’s including a Rapala X Rap (Clown) produced the majority of the fish that he put in the boat. If my info is correct he placed 4th-with a 5 Bass Limit. Braxton is off to a good start-Good Luck in the upcoming events on Chickamauga  and Nick-A-Jack . Rick McFerrin
