Currently the fishing on Neely Henry is deep into a Summer pattern. Water temps are in the 90′s and fish are on the ledges. You can catch fish right now on a go2bait company 10in worm, and a go2bait company finesse worm teamed up with a tackle doctor jig head. We are fishing ledges ht go from 12ft and top out around 6ft. Usually if you find 1 fish you are going to find several. Be on the lookout for surfacing activity, shad flipping, ect….this is a great sign. If you can find a ledge with baitfish then you are going to be sure the bass will follow. Also, the stripe activity is really picking up on the main river! Be sure to drag a worm up under them to catch some quality largemouth and spots s well. I have several days available and would love to take you on an evening or weekend guide trip!

Well so far so good….I guess lol This tournament season has been a serious grind! I am currently sitting in 49th place for angler of the year and need to get in the top 40 to qualify for the regional championship which was my goal at the beginning of the year. I have two more tournaments left….the 2day on Guntersville in September is worth double the points. I think I can make it but it will be a close one. If I stay consistent I think I will finish around 36th just sliding inside the cut. *Fingers crossed* I will be fishing on Weiss Lake in 2 weeks then off till September when we have our 2 day tournament. I appreciate you all keeping up with me through the year! I got to give a shout-out to all my sponsors as well….Wired2Fish, Tackle Doctors, BassOnTheLine.com, Go2Bait Company, Lews Reels, and Greg’s Custom Rods…..these guys make it all worth while and I greatly appreciate their help through the year!
