Bartletts Ferry Fishing Report – March 2009
Bartletts Ferry: Level: Full pool. Temp: 53 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Good. “They’re still biting, but they’re getting smaller again,” said Dennis Hudson. “It seems like you just have to go out on a particular day and figure out what’s working.” He said the crankbait bite is either on or off, but when it’s on the fish are on secondary points about halfway back in the pockets in about 6 feet of water. Dennis likes a Bagley Small Fry crankbait in Tennessee shad for this bite. On into March, the pocket stuff should pick up as the bass move up and under boat docks to stage. Dennis said anything you can get under a boat dock will work. He likes a Senko, a shaky-head finesse worm or a jig for this bite. Green pumpkin is the color of choice. Docks with some depth off the front are preferable, but the fish will still be right up on the banks. There should also be some good days for spinnerbaits and crankbaits as the fish stage up and begin spreading out along the banks. Good spots to try are breaks in seawalls or anywhere there is a couple of feet of depth or brush off a seawall.
