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 www.rapala.com –others on a VMC Darter Head Jig www.vmchooks.com 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 www.tennesseebassguides.com

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 www.rapala.com. I threw this on the new Neon Lime Sufix 8lb Advance Mono with a 8lb Sufix Fluorocarbon leader www.sufix.com. 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. Thankd for visiting my site. Rick McFerrin www.tennesseebassguides.com
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) www.rapala.com 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 www.tennesseebassguides.com
Fished with Ken and Ronnie 2 days this week and the ones above was our best. Rapala DT6 in Red Craw–Caribbean Shad and the “New” Root Beer Chartreuse did most of the work www.rapala.com Sufix 6lb Pro Mix www.sufix.com Water temps vary depending on your location. Any where from high 40’s to low 50’s. Thanks for visiting my site. Rick McFerrin www.tennesseebassguides.com

Ronnie is holding our best in 3 1/2 hours this morning all caught on a one of the following 3 Rapala DT6 Red Craw-Demon-Caribbean Shad www.rapala.com and Sufix 6 and 8lb Pro Mix mono www.sufix.com . Big fish was 4lb 12 ounce and total for best 5 was 14lbs. Water temp on Woods Tuesday was 47 to 54 degrees and 3/4 of the lake has a lot of color. Normandy has good color and the area we fished ranged from 50 to 52 degrees. Glad to have Ronnie back out today-he has been under the weather—Thanks for visiting my site.
