    River fishing

    I fished holston Under that bridge yesterday evening (stayed literally under it for a while because of the downpour. ) we caught some tiny smallmouth and sunfish on crankbait, hair jig, and inline spinner. it’s pretty tough sledding right there this year. I did get a sauger and a drum trolling after my buddies left right before dark. There are big fish in the area, but they are pretty smart I guess. Maybe try Fishing as deep as you can out in the middle of the deep holes, there are some humps and sharp ledges here and there. Do you have a depth finder on the kayak? Also just remembered if you were fishing the holston in the morning, I’m guessing the water was raging so that makes it a lot tougher. Spinnerbaits jerkbaits and loud topwater seems better during generation

    I’ve never been there but they typically gather under the grass mats midday where I fish down south. Frog or heavy sinker seems to be the trick

    Ned rig

    I havent tried the elaztech material but I have been known to rip a worm to shreds and throw it into orbit from frustration after 15-20 attempts to get them to hang straight! A lot of the videos I have seen of people fishing the ned, the worm isn’t straight when they show the bait but they just fish it anyway. I just use small portions of a variety of floating soft plastics on cheaper jigheads. Even still I try to rig them weedless, hard to fish bottom with exposed hooks in the crazy current near me.

    My Merc 4 stroke is a pain but it's mostly bevsuse there aren't any parts available. It's a 2008 50 hp 4 stroke and apparently they didn't make many. Powerhead is fine but people have a hard time doing any work on it. Mechanics mostly say they have never seen them except in salt water

    Hahahaha. I've still never been there but you always hear about 20+ bags but everyone you talk after coming back from soho is talking about 1-2 small fish or blanking

    Thanks again guys, I always use either 8-10 lb mono. Might get out for another experiment after work tomorrow

    Went again last night and caught 2! With a crank! Heck of it was they both bit with 2 ft of line out after the bait had already come off the bottom and was about to hit the boat. Also I ran up the holston thinking I could crank up smallmouth on some flats. The two I caught were a walleye and largemouth, that's what I get for thinking!!!

    Thanks for all the advice guys, probably going again today to try after work. Had to jig up some white bass yesterday just to feel a fish
