A couple of years ago when Chilhowee was drawn down for repairs, a buddy and I put in at Abrams Creek launch in a two man canoe and 5 HP outbaord in late October. We worked up the road side of the bank along the rocks, then crossed the lake and work the wood line bank down about a mile. If my buddy hadn't tried to land the last smallmouth tail first (why he did this I'll never know since he had landed everything else for me head first all day!) I would have limited out that day. The smallest fish weighed two and a half pounds, the largest was an even five pounds. That day was the best fishing day I ever had in my life. To make it even more memorable, I caught all those fish on the same lure; an old deep-diving Rapala plug out of my tackle box from the 60's. Man, what a day!
