Teresa and I went to Samburg, Tennessee to fish for bluegills with Kyle Homra of Homra's Guide Service.
I love to get a bunch of crickets, a bobber, and just take it easy fishing for bream. This was a little more aggressive than that, but it was a ton of fun.
Reelfoot is a scenic area, it's almost like being down on the Bayou. It was a hot, humid day. but the big bluegills were hitting pretty good. We used 12ft ultra-lite rods that really put the sport into landing those big Reelfoot bluegills.
This is the time of year that they are on the bed, so we released them all day. If we had wanted to keep a mess of fish we certainly would have a good dinner of tasty bull bluegills.
Teresa caught a nice catfish along with her bluegills. It was a pretty good fight on that ultra-light pole. I had something big on, but he wrapped me around one of the many stumps and got off before I could get a look at whatever it was.
One thing I really liked about Reelfoot was the fact that it's a fisherman's lake. Due to it's shallow depth and many stumps, there are no ski boats or personal water craft, just smaller fishing boats.
If you would like to fish with Kyle, you can reach him at 731-538-9846.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
