Fishing Report 3/18/09, Fort Loudon
Went out today to try to find some big ones deep and up river. We started out at George's Creek ramp off Topside and went as far as the cove at I.C. King (or should I say IC Queen?) park. Water temperature was 58 at 10:30 am when we began fishing. We found 63 degree water at 4:30 pm when we stopped. We didn't have much luck deep trying deep diving crankbaits and jigs. We managed to catch a couple slicks on some rock banks in about 15 feet of water on soft plastics and caught a couple more in George's Creek just before we loaded up on plastics. TWRA was out and asked us if we would answer some survey questions for him and we did. He said he hadn't seen anyone catching much that day. We saw several BFL guys out practicing and watched them haul water for a little while. It seemed to be a tough day out there. If I were to do it over I would target 15-25 feet of water and use soft plastics and try dragging a jig. Good luck to all!
