Old Hickory Feb 4
Ok, hit the water on Old Hick at 10:00 AM this morning, nice and calm. Fished mid-lake out of Avondale from Bluegrass to Cedar Creek. Water temp 44 degrees. Water clarity averaged 3í. Used deep cranks on points, no luck. Idled around and side scan everything from ledges to flats to creek channels. Very few bait pods, no diving birds indicating dying shad. Tried football jigs, creature baits, slow rolled spinner baits, depths from 6í to 25í, whatever. Perhaps should have run to the dam but finger tips were frost bit. Oh well, got some time on the water.
