We get our Golden Shiners and Ruby Reds mailed directly from the farm. We have the advantage with the best live bait available. My Ruby Reds (Pink Minnow) work great on Crappie and out fish all other store bought bait. We go the extra mile so you can have a great trip!

Wednesday Sep. 27th. I did a redo trip because of slow bite a couple of weeks ago. We hammered them this time with several fish going 4-5 pounds.Total fish caught around 30 and biggest one today went 5.06. My guest said that was the most fish he had landed all year. The spoon bite is on and should be the rest of the year. TRDGS Trip Open Dates Calendar, Check my Pro Fishing Reports for the location where we caught this mess of Hybrids.
Tue,Sep. 26th Took a dear friend and his dad and his four year old son out for a couple of hours. This family just lost a loved one and needed some lake therapy. We didn't load the boat today but I did find several Crappie and a few Catfish. We did manage to have lots of laughs and enjoyed spending time with this precious family.

Thursday, September 16, 2021. Took Scott Smith out this morning on a 6-hour trip. He caught 4 huge Hybrids at my normal Hybrid hotspot. When the bite died down, moved to a new spot. While fishing in 25 feet of water, I accidentally drifted off my spot into 52 feet of water and spotted the weirdest thing I have ever seen on my Garmin Livescope: a bait ball the size of a basketball going up and down like someone was dribbling it. Then I saw over 500 Hybrids chasing the bait ball. In the next 3 hours, he caught 17 Hybrids. All Hybrids were released. Looks like I have found a new Hybrid hotspot.
Friday, September 17, 2021. As soon as I put rods out at my Hybrid hotspot, Scott Walker hooked and landed a 10 pound 4 ounce Hybrid. Within 30 minutes, his Dad topped his son's fish by hooking and landing a 10 pound 10 ounce Hybrid. They caught a total of 30 Hybrids and 3 huge Channel Catfish. The two 10 pounders and all Hybrids over 5 pounds were safely released. The big Hybrid bite is on! Check my Fishing Trip Open Dates Calendar and Book your trip. The lake record awaits you.
Friday, September 17, 2021. Went back to my Hybrid hotspot and spotted hundreds of Hybrids on my Livescope. The school was at least 30 feet long and 5 feet deep. As soon as I got rods out we had fish on. After catching 10 Hybrids (five 6 Pounders) in the first 5 minutes, Charlie got hungry and I had to take him back to Fate Sanders for a cheeseburger. As soon as we returned to my hotspot we were catching big Hybrids again. After catching 10 more Hybrids, Charlie got tired and his father cut the trip short. This is one time I wanted to continue fishing. With size of these Hybrids, I'm sure one of my clients will soon catch the lake record.
Wednesday, September 15, 2021. One of my regular clients Leon White and two of his three sons, Craig and Mike had a ball catching 7 nice Hybrids, a 9 pound Cat, and a Green fish which we threw back. The largest Hybrid weighed 9 pounds 10 ounces. The hybrids didn't start biting until around noon when it started raining hard. Luckily I installed my enclosure windshield and my clients stayed dry in the downpour. Still have a few September trip openings.
Tuesday, September 14, 2021. My clients this morning were Charlie Campbell and Larry "Woodrow" Woody, the three-time winner of the Tennessee Sports Writer of the Year award. Took them to my Hybrid hot spot of the week where they caught 6 nice Hybrids the largest weighing 6 pounds 13 ounces. See the location of the Hybrid hot spot in my Pro Fishing Reports. More Photos.
