I really enjoyed spending time with Gary Mercer yesterday at Lake Wedowee. Gary was in a bass club with me years ago – more than we want to remember. Now he fishes Wedowee every week and has a place there. We didn’t get to fish much due to limited time but he showed me ten spots to catch bass in May and proved he knows the lake well.
It was a beautiful day but I was still surprised at the number of bass fishermen on the lake. Wedowee is normally not real crowded due to its location and somewhat limited access. We talked to two fishermen that were catching spots on a hump on Carolina rigged lizards. Gary got a good keeper spot on a spinnerbait after we saw some swirls in a pocket full of shad.
Supposed to head to Chickamauga in Tennessee tomorrow. It has been red hot, with a five fish, 44 pound limit weighed in about a month ago. I am going with Jeremy York, owner of Anglers Warehouse here in Georgia. He had a five fish limit weighing 30.25 pounds a few weeks ago in a BFL tournament there – and came in third! Should be a great trip.
