Night Fishing for Black Bass

It’s quiet at night. There’re fewer boats and no skiers. You may not have a lake to yourself, but have better fish-catching opportunities. The following are a few excellent bass lakes in Middle Tennessee to ply your skills (or luck, if you aren’t so skillful), but keep in mind it’s better to start fishing before dark so you’re set and ready for the night of angling.

Old Hickory Lake
Guide, Jim Duckworth, who walked the length of Old Hickory underwater during his mussel diving days, says, “You can catch 50 bass from one long section of milfoil. Bass will hit several baits. Plastic rats or frogs can be worked over the weeds without your hooks being fouled with green vegetation.”
