    i plan on hittin loudon as soon as it warms up a lil more ,lil on the cool side for me right now ...been aching to try out my new fish finder and get it tuned in :big_smile: i figured the low water table may of concentrated the blues a little tighter in the deep pockets this year ,cant wait to get out there and give em a tug on the line.

    Ricky,

    How deep are you catching them and in what general area of the lake? I've been fishing from Poland Creek to Concord and I'm not doing too well lately.

    Hey Ricky,

    I fished the very deep (70+) hole beneath the biggest rock bluff between Louisville Park and Poland creek last Sunday. The fish were stacked up but I didn't get a single bite.

    I also fished a few other spots that have produced in the area (the deep water by the silo and the dropoff by the lighted channel marker acroos from the Loisville boat launch and got skunked.

    I marked a lot of fish by the bluff and the channel marker but they just were not interested.

    I'll probable fish Loudon again this coming weekend.

    Ricky,

    Thank for the info. I'll try to get up to Knox to do some fishing this weekend. Some dirtbag stole the batteries out of my boat sometime Sunday night or Monday, so I got to find some cash real quick. I'll probably fish Sunday afternoon. Holler at me if you want to come along.
