    As I was getting ready to pick up my party (four adults and two young boys) for a four hour trip at 5 PM, the lighting and thunder show started up to the West and North of Pinnacle Landing. Of course that is the area I scouted yesterday for this this trip. My clients requested that I go South or East to get away from the storm action which I did. We ended up fishing the McCrarys Creek section of the lake.

    Bait of choice was white perch and blue gills, mostly used as cut bait. Water temp was 84 degrees and wind direction was from every direction due to the storm action. If you have never fished LKN in the afternoon during the summer time, don't do it. We had PWC's, cruise boats, pontoon boats, ski boats, etc. coming within 50 feet of us. Still, we managed to have a decent trip.

    Not a single fish was put in the boat until 6:45 PM and we had a double on the catfish rigs, plus some singles and ended the day with another double. After the first double on the cats, the Sabiki's kicked in and produced catches of two to three each time we went over a school of them. I had a nine and twelve year old boys manning the rods. Twelve some catfish were caught, all eating size, except for two small ones and a couple dozen of white perch.

    Everybody was delivered safely back to Pinnancle Landing at 8:45 PM.
