Boredom and Chaos

Met these two lovely people for lunch at Shipwreck Cove restaurant at Elm Hill Marina on Tuesday. Figured we’d have lunch before setting sail. The day was stifling hot and humid as we set sail in search of the elusive hybrids of Percy Priest lake outside Nashville. Wanting to locate the fish before we set […]

Tough week!

Fished with Bill, (the good looking one) and his sidekick, Tom starting at 5:30 AM Monday morning. It was a beautiful day to be on the water, slight breeze, not yet hot enough to make you break a sweat, and the anticipation of battling some 10+pound hybrids. After an hour the anticipation turned into hope. […]

Went out with Eric and his son Jacob, and Jacob’s buddy, Jack, for a little early morning hybrid fishing. Somebody forgot to […]

Had a nice morning with Robert and Eileen from Illinois this morning. Finding the fish was tough, spent a lot of time checking the usual haunts only to find them empty. Had to make an 8 mile run to another area that usually holds fish this time of year and found some. But it was […]

Fished with Chatreau  and Rodney from Memphis Thursday and had a decent day. Had trouble finding the wandering nomads called hybrids. The darn things have a bad habit of not being where you left them the day before! But we eventually found them and got on them pretty good, wound up catching 13 hybrids, two […]

Slow Thursday for Hybrids

merv 0 Uncategorized

Fished with Salty (Jonathan Soultatos) Thursday on JPP, looking to hook up with some hybrids. Fished up in the Stones river for an hour or so, had one right away and later had one on but it ran me into a snag and had to break it off. Took off and did some scouting for […]

Percy Priest Hybrid and Striper club took out a bunch of Wounded Warriors today, hosted by Elm Hill Marina and Shipwreck Cove restaurant in Nashville. My WW was Sheng Chen, and we kicked some hybrid (Cherokee bass) butt! Chen caught the whopper of the day, a 9.75 lb  bruiser that gave him a very long […]
