Hey all,

Just moved down to Chattanooga from MN a couple months ago and was looking to get into some craps/trout from the shore. Unfortunately, I’m a student so I do not have the funds to purchase any electronics or boat but was wondering if anyone had a few tips on getting into some/tips on spots to try from the bank. In MN, the crappie spawn would tend to happen in early May but I’m assuming it’s a lot earlier down here with the weather being much warmer.

Any information helps, was just wondering so I could get into some open water and wet a line during this time of year.

Thanks y’all!

-Matt

One of the most popular crappie fishing from the banks spots anywhere is at the Wolftever Bridge.... where Hwy. 58 crosses Wolftever Creek: https://goo.gl/maps/5eS1z9so6Y52 On select days success rates vary from nothing to absolutely hammering them.

Rsimms thanks a ton! Just throwing jigs/small spinners or do they tend to like the bobber tipped with a minnow approach?

Most of those people are using minnows I believe.

Harrison bay around the marina can be good for crappie once they move up and the bass tend to always be around the docks...throw a jig or minnow on a float up next to the open docks and see what happens...

If your good with slip floats it helps to get baits down to the level of the crappie. I have fished 20 ft deep with them around Wolfteever. Tyner Ln boat ramp, walk to the right of ramp. if you have waders cross the cut and walk to the clay point and fish all the way past the green buoy!!

For trout, lake junior @ 153 and Amnicola hwy is now open for fishing on Fri, Sat and Sun only. You'll need a trout stamp on top of your regular license to fish for them.

Where can you find the dates/times that Lake Junior is open? Is it posted anywhere online or just at the lake?

Some stringers full of crappie were caught under Wolftever Bridge about a week ago.

I'm pretty sure there is a sign down near the water.

Welcome to TN Matt. You're going to love fishing in TN. Locally trout fishing is winter only "put and take", but there are lots of year round options within a short drive. Here's some information: https://www.tn.gov/twra/fishing/trout-information-stockings.html
Google "Hiwassee River"

That or jig under a float... That's a great technique on shallower shorelines as the spawn approaches.... March through early April. However at the bridge water is deep, you're better off throwing plain jigs (1/32 or 1/16 ox.) worked slow.
