    right now with the water in the area still cold you need to be fishing deep docks and points. Carolina rigs, flukes, jigs, buck tails, and drop shotting seem to work best. The bass should be moving in to bed near the end of march or april, depending on the weather. When they move into shallower water I like texas rigged trick worms and creature baits. if you can see the fish on the bed take a lizard or creature bait and literally drop it in the bed and just twitch it slightly. Being as protective as they are they will eat pretty much anything that gets in there. once they move off the beds but are still in shallow water I like to texas rig downed trees, logs, and rocks.

    One thing you might look into for this colder weather is trout fishing. there is lots of opportunity to catch good trout, especially up on the holston river at white top laurel, just outside abingdon There are also tons of stocked streams around here and fresh trout tastes awesome!

    Thats a pretty general overview of how I fish around here. Let me know if you have any more specific questions and i will answer them the best I can.

    Also, i am not the best fisherman in the world by any means but I can usually catch a fair catch.

    I like a good Texas Rig, but Takern's right, it is still pretty cold out there...even in Central Texas (how much more so in TN). I was out yesterday and only managed to hook a scrappy little Bluegill using a medium-sized top-water chugger. All that said, there are some decent resources online if you just Google it up.... I found this guy's site to be pretty helpful www.getsomebass.com

    Anyways, good luck out there!
