Kick Fishing

<p>Made a trip out to CA to do some work for a couple weeks.  We had a nice little break in the weather yesterday, so my buddy Hank and I took the boat out to Clear Lake.  The water is WAY up, and a few houses surrounding the lake were starting to flood!  The fishing was a bit tough, but we still managed a couple nice ones.  For anyone trying to make a trip out here, Konocti Vista is the only place with a boat ramp that’s still available to use, everything else is flooded from what I’ve heard.  (at Clearlake, California)<br/>

<p>Well that’s a wrap for my first KBF Trail event at Santee Cooper Lake.  I had a solid 3rd place finish out of 125 anglers.  I had the winning fish on, but it made a jump and threw the hook.  It’s bound to happen once in a while, you can’t catch them all :)  Prefishing I was catching all my fish on spinnerbaits and chatterbaits on the outside edges of the grass, but after the first two hours of the tournament without a fish in the boat, I knew I had to change things up.  I saw a nice patch of matted grass and picked up my iRod 775 flipping  stick.  First cast got a 3 pounder, and it was game on for the next 2 hours.  Midday for some reason the bite died, I scrambled to figure something else out but nada.  Next on the list is the National Championship in Shreveport Louisiana at the end of March, I can’t wait! #hook1outfitters #irodfishing #kickfishing #torqeedo #yesyakima #bendingbranches #yakattack #kbfbonusbucks #kayakbassfishing #wildyfishing #quantumfishing #santeecooper  (at Santee, South Carolina)<br/>

<p>Yesterday was my first day of prefishing for KBF southeast regional tournament at Santee Cooper in South Carolina.  The tournament is this Saturday, but I sure wish it was today, hopefully these big fish I found stick around for a few more days.  My new iRods are working great, I caught this big 21.5” using 703 Crusher series iRod.  #hook1outfitters #kickfishing #irodfishing #santeecooper #yakattack #torqeedo #kayakbassfishing <br/>

<p>Got out to Piercy Priest Lake with my buddy Josh for a few hours yesterday morning.  The wind started gusting around 25mph by noon so we called it a day.  Managed to get a couple 4lb bass on some chatterbaits that I just finished tying up the night before. #hook1outfitters #kickfishing #nrsfishing #wildernesssystemskayaks #piercypriestlake #seaguar  (at Percy Priest Lake)<br/>

<p>Took advantage of the awesome weather over the past weekend and did some fishing on the Harpeth River.  Springlike conditions had the big fish chewing.  We caught them on a variety of different lures, red crankbaits, Brush Hogs, grubs, and jerkbaits all put fish in the boat.  I’m sure happy we got out there because this storm that’s currently moving through is sure to have the rivers blown out for at least a week.

<p>Always nice to catch up and get on the water with my good friend Justin!  Both our roots are in California, but we have since made the south our new home.  I can’t speak for him, but it’s definitely the best decision I’ve ever made, and I’m pretty sure he would say the same.  It was a cold rainy day out on Guntersville but we still managed around 20 bass between the two of us.  He caught the largest of the day on a Molix spinnerbait.  Chatterbaits and lipless crankbaits were also putting a few fish in the boat.  Looking forward to getting back out again tomorrow!  #kickfishing #pheonixboats #hook1outfitters #molixlures #coldandrainy #bassmasteraoy  (at Guntersville Lake)<br/>

<p>Crushed them on the Harpeth River this morning!  Chris, Kent and I all caught a largemouth over 4 lbs. A couple even bigger ones came unbuttoned.  The water level was way up, and expectations were pretty low, but we found a nice little wintering hole that they were stacked up in.  This time of year slower moving sections of river with deep water and rock are good areas to fish.

<p>Recent storms have blown out most the rivers, as well as a few of our local lakes in middle Tennessee.  Tim’s Ford is a clear water smallmouth lake which I have yet to fish.  Adam and I decided to explore some new water, and made a couple trips out there this past week.  We only caught a handful of fish each day, but most were good sized smallmouth.  We struggled to find a consistent pattern, but definitely felt the potential the lake has if we were just able to dial things in a bit.  #hook1outfitters #kickfishing #seaguarfluorocarbon #newwater #bendingbranchespaddles  (at Tims Ford Lake)<br/>

<p>Changed gears a bit and jumped on Josh’s bass boat to fish the Piercy Priest Winter Series team tournament today.  The day started slow when we discovered our primary area got muddied up by recent storms.  Midday we went to plan B and started catching fish right off the bat.  Throwing Alabama Rigs, we filled our 5 fish limit the next couple hours.  With 10 minutes left in the day Josh catches a 4.92 which secured us a first place finish as well as big fish for the tournament! #firstplaceandbigbass #basstournament #kickfishing #lastminuteheroics #teamwork #piercypriestlake #kbftn (at Percy Priest Lake)<br/>

<p>Made another trip out to Dale Hollow Lake, this time with my friends Dave and Robert.  We finally had some decent weather, which was a nice bonus to catching a few big smallmouth bass!  The Damiki rig was working first thing in the morning, but then shut off.  I caught a couple with a float’n fly, which is a technique I’m still a bit new at.  #hook1outfitters #yesyakima #seaguarfluorocarbon #floatandfly #easttennessee #kayakbassfishing #wildernesssystemskayaks #kickfishing  (at Dale Hollow Lake)

<p>Battled wind, rain, and 35* temps this past weekend at the Snowball Classic on Dale Hollow.  Managed a second place finish on the individual and team event.  All the fish were caught on a Damiki rig in 30-40 feet of water. Despite the weather I had an absolute blast catching a bunch of big smallmouth bass!  #hook1outfitters #seaguarfluorocarbon #videogamefishing #dalehollowlake #kickfishing  (at Dale Hollow Lake)<br/>

<p>Kenny just moved out to TN from San Diego.  On a guided trip on Piercy Priest today, he caught his first ever smallmouth bass.  The snow on the drive to the lake definitely reminded him he’s not in San Diego anymore :) Despite the weather, it was still an enjoyable day and pleasure to introduce Kenny to his new “home lake”  For info of Mid TN guided fishing trips visit kickfishing.com #hook1outfitters #yesyakima #winterbassfishing #welcometotennessee  (at Percy Priest Lake)<br/>

<p>Despite the cold weather, the fishing was pretty good out on the Duck River the other day.  The largest bass of the day went 2.5 lbs, but Adam, Chris and I all caught a good amount of fish in the 1-2 lb range, which definitely made for a fun day of fishing.  Jerkbaits, Super Flukes, and black and blue jugs all caught their fair share of fish.  The water temp was right at 50, so slack water areas away from the current seemed to be most productive.

<p>Went to a local Nashville Creek yesterday evening to do a little wade fishing with the new 8wt fly rod.  I caught quite a few little rock bass, then right before dark I hooked in to this good sized smallmouth!  Thanks Paul Wolter for tying me up some awesome streamers!  Definitely looking forward to doing bringing the fly rod on my next float trip on the kick boat.

<p>Last Friday I took Terry Bowman out on Piercy Priest for a half day trip.  The fishing has been tough out there lately due to the unseasonably warm weather, but he managed to kill it out there, catching a mixed bag of largemouth and white bass!  We focused on fishing flats around the Fate Sanders area.  Fish were busting the surface everywhere, but were very much dialed in to the small shad that seemed to be all over the place.  Lipless crankbaits caught a few around the schooling fish.  When we were in areas with less bait, shakey head worms were working well.  I did my best to show him a few new techniques as well as spots to fish.  I’m sure I learned just as much from him, as he did from me.  He’s definitely a damn good fisherman who knows the lake well.         Visit KickFishing.com for info on mid TN guided fishing trips (at Percy Priest Lake)<br/>

Last Friday I took Terry Bowman out on Piercy Priest for a half day trip. The fishing has been tough out there lately due to the unseasonably warm weather, but he managed to kill it out there, catching a mixed bag of largemouth and white bass! We focused on fishing flats around the Fate Sanders area. Fish were busting the surface everywhere, but were very much dialed in to the small shad that seemed to be all over the place.

Last weekend I joined Will McInnes and Michael for a float down a skinny water creek, a tributary of the Harpeth River near Nashville TN. The water was crystal clear, at times it was like looking into an aquarium, there were fish everywhere! We caught all three species of bass, as well as a few bonus sunfish. Both artificial soft plastic lures, and live bait was working great. The access points on this stretch were on private property, so it’s rare for these fish to get any fishing pressure.

Harpeth River Clean Up


A little river cleanup today with the good people from the Harpeth Conservancy! Making the river a cleaner place for myself and others to enjoy is always a rewarding experience. I hope this inspires others to at least pick up a few pieces of trash at while exploring the outdoors. If more people would just put a small amount of effort, it could go a long ways.

Adam and Josh with a double hook up out on a river near Sparta TN. It was an 11 hour float trip. The first couple hours were pretty slow, but once we got about midway through, the bite turned on. Green pumpkin and brown tubes fished with an 1/8 oz jighead were catching the majority of the fish.  Towards the evening, the buzzbait bite turned on.  Targeting ambush areas along rock and wood was the key to getting bit.  We all caught a bunch of fish and had a great time!

Buffalo River with Bryce


I took Bryce out on the Buffalo River for his maiden voyage on a kickboat. He was a fast learner and caught a bunch of fish. Most were little guys, but he managed to catch a couple decent ones.  Jigs, Flukes, and Whopper Ploppers were the hot lures of the day. Once this weather cools off a bit and the water temps drop, the bite should be on!!!
