The fish are really turned on at Skiatook. Shorter days and cooler water temperatures have triggered a feeding frenzy at Skiatook. The fish are trying their best to put on body fat to make it through ... [more]

2014-10-19 Fishing has remained hit or miss for us over the last several weeks with some days being better then others and the quality bite very difficult to find. Most of the same patterns that have been productive over the last month or so are still catching fish with not much change. I have not been able to be on the water the last 4 days but am anxious to see if this cold snap has pushed the fish more toward the late fall/early winter type pattern which would be a blessing considering how poor our fall has been!!! The weather this week looks to remain pretty cool so hopefully it will help the bite fo... [more]

- Can't believe OH is rated two and a half for smallmouth... I live on this lake and fish it three to four time a week... I started targeting smallmouth several years ago... I go to Dale Hollow often and catch lots of smallmouth. Very few Smallmouth on OH and they are very small... not the right habitat...

- We were catching striped bass on ratlers real steady for about an hour, regretfully none were large enough to keep but we had fun. My son caught a 16 large mouth bass using a crawdad rig. With the warmer weather the water tempature averaged 59 to 61 degrees. Water clarity was good (you could see your lures 2 to 3 feet down.

Old Hickory Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
