    i was just wondering why people dont really post anything about nickajack anymore? i havent had time to go but it would be nice to hear some success stories and locations where you fish down there. and who knows maybe we can have a get together just for the boc not a gathering but just a fishing trip so we can meet everybody around town? let me know what your input is and thanks yall!

    There is not much going on there or on a lot of other rivers and lakes. Guessing the Fuel prices are keeping a lot of people off the water. :sad:
    I had thought about going at Pickwick in the morning. But at $3.49 per gallon on diesel and $3.00 per gallon on gas. I can't see spending $20 to go tomorrow. :cursing:
    But do hope to make a trip over and fish Nickajack sometime this fall. :D

    Judy and I are fixin to get our boat water ready here soon so we can do some fall fishing and camping, hopefully. We are due a fishing trip. Maybe we will see you down at Nickajack later in the fall, Tracey.

    Pete ole buddy, the price of fuel is about the same over here right now. It has sure put a damper on a bunch of our going anywhere. :eek:

    Hey Tracey, Jim, Judy, Pete, and Marilyn. I haven't been fishing since the Chattanooga gathering, but I hope to get a little fall fishing action. Good to see you all and hope to have more time for chatting and fishing in the near future.

    Well everyone I made a trip to nickajack yesterday, and other than the fact that I had a good time and the whole river to myself I didn't catch anything. Well that is not entirely true I caught a few bluegills for bait. I got about half dozen bites on night crawlers and then that stopped. I got two hits on small shiners (I can't hardly find large shiners around here anymore). I didn't get a single bite on the bluegills, but that was a last ditch effort after the other two quit producing anything. It was quite peaceful and a beautiful day and did my soul some good just getting away from the house. Later y'all! :D
