Blackburn Fork 8-11-17

Recommended Posts


I was expecting storms all day and didn't really want to get caught on the lake in a thunderstorm so I grabbed my kid brother, a couple of spinning rods and jumped in the Jeep... we drove about 3 miles down to the Blackburn fork with is a small tributary creek to the Cumberland River that runs through Jackson County. The water was cold and crystal clear, you could clearly see the rock bottom. We stopped at several different locations casting at stumps, old bridge posts with some depth to them along the old dirt and gravel roads.

I was throwing a green pumpkin river beaver by strike king (i think) Texas rigged on a 2/0 hook, he was throwing a biospawn 4 inch plasma tail in green pumpkin / chartreuse on a drop shot set up.

We had a blast catching these river/creek smallmouth. Something I plan on doing a lot from time to time now on days I want to do something a little different or don't feel like loading up the boat. The water felt good on a hot summer day to!
