Dayton TN Fishing Conditions
Weekly Fishing Report for LAKE CHICKAMAUGA
Fishing Report for Lake Chickamauga Monday, November 26th. Brought to you by USCG Licensed Captain Billy Wheat owner of Rip-Rap Fishing Adventures Guide Service.
Bass are Shad eating machines right now! Ratltraps are a great tool when fishing shallow points and flats 3-5 feet deep. The Sexy Shad is hard to beat right now. When moving to the deeper side you need to change up to the Arig or suspending jerkbait.
Crappie are in the trees on deep banks and suspended on steep 45 degree angled banks.
Bluegill are in the same places as the crappie. Just change to a splitshot and a cricket.
If you like our weekly fishing report, you can tune in live with Billy Wheat every Saturday morning from 7-8 am during the “Set the Hook” radio program with Pat Rose on ESPN 105.1 The Zone in Chattanooga.
Benefit from the Insight of Bluewater’s Resident Fishing Guide
Did you know Bluewater Resort & Marina has a fishing guide available here in Dayton to help our guests improve their experience staying on the water?
Captain Billy Joe Wheat, owner of Rip-Rap Fishing Adventure, uses Bluewater to launch excursions on Chickamauga Lake. Rates are $200 for up to 2 people for 4 hours of fishing or $300 for up to 2 people for 8 hours. Rates go up for each additional person after 2, and with follow boats tagging along.
Virtually everyone can benefit from his insight. For some children, he is a valued guide preparing them for tournament action or their first experience fishing. From the casual fisherman to tournament anglers looking for an edge, he can also offer instruction based on his considerable time in these waters. His YouTube page contains several videos where he and guests are reeling in catches under all seasons and weather conditions. Captain Wheat teaches his students how to use electronics and understand the impact of river currents on wildlife.
“The number one goal is for you to learn something new every time you go out with us and have a great time doing it!” he said.
A guided fishing adventure makes a great birthday or holiday gift, and gift certificates are available. To book your guided fishing adventure with Captain Wheat at Bluewater, call (423) 987-2606 or email him at email@example.com.
