Excitement is definitely mounting! In just under 6 weeks I will be pedal to the metal, headed out on the start of my dream bass smackin’ trip around the U.S. Things are falling into place. I have mapped out my first several stops, Gotten some new gear, fixed up the truck, and have been researching and planning like a man possessed.
During my research time I have had many ideas and gone on many tangents regarding how exactly to proceed with my adventure and this site, youtube channel etc. I have decided to bring you along with me just as I am. What I mean by that is: simply put, I am not a man of means, I am just a man who loves bass fishing. All of my locations, setups, baits, lures, kayak, and extra gear are how I would classify “for the common man”. One of my main goals throughout this trip is to find and test the best inexpensive (not cheap) gear.
Lets start out with the current Lake “Plan of Attack”
Aug: Headed to Kentucky
Lake Barkley Lake, KY
Cedar Creek Lake, KY
Wood Creek Lake, KY
Laurel River Lake-Cumberland falls, KY
Dale Hollow Lake, KY/TN
Late Aug-Mid Sept: Zippin down to TN
Center Hill Lake, TN
Watts Bar Lake, TN
Chickamauga Lake, TN
Tims Ford Lake, TN
Kentucky Lake, TN
This is my plotted war path so far. If any local anglers want to chime in with additional spots, tips, or stories from any of these or nearby lakes please feel free to share. I know I would like to hear them, and as this grows I am sure others would as well.
Stay Tuned! Next post………Gear List!!
