Weekly Fishing Report for LAKE CHICKAMAUGA

dayton tn fishing guide Billy Joe WheatFishing Report for Lake Chickamauga Monday, June 26. Brought to you by USCG Licensed Captain Billy Wheat owner of Rip-Rap Fishing Adventures Guide Service.

Bass: Using your electronics is going to be a big help as fish are moving around with the baitfish. A 6xd is a great search bait. Once you fire a school up, get a Big Daddy’s Custom Baits Hair jig and finish them off. Grass is great with a topwater or a big worm.

Bluegill and Shellcracker are on the bluffs hot and heavy.

Crappie. Night lights on the bridges get it done. In the Daytime, start looking in about 15 feet to 25 feet again. Electronics are awesome! Learn to use them and you can find the Crappie.

Have fun!
