There aren’t many reports available this time of year but we can count on continued reports from Tennessee.

Even if you don’t live in these areas, I hope this helps you figure out what to fish when the water temps drop.

December Fishing Reports


  • Center Lake – Smallmouth bite is best on crank baits in 8-12 feet of water.
  • Dale Hollow – Smallmouth bass bite is very good on spinner baits and jigs in about 20 feet of water.
  • Duck River – Smallmouth bass are being caught throughout the day downstream.
  • Tim’s Ford – Smallmouth bass bite is steady on spinners.  Source


  • Lake Mohave – anglers still are catching  smallmouth bass in the backs of coves with plastics and nightcrawlers.


  • Blue River – Smallmouth and spotted bass fair on soft plastic baits fished very slowly around deep structure.
  • Broken Bow – smallmouth and spotted bass fair on jigs in green pumpkin and peanut butter and jelly colors, soft plastic baits in watermelon and green pumpkin, Carolina rigs, Texas rigs and shaky heads around steeper rock banks and major creeks at 10-20 ft., on jerk baits in clown color and on topwater early and late.
  • Texoma – Smallmouth bass fair on jig combination baits at 10-20 ft. around riprap.  Source

As you can see, spinnerbaits are still working in some parts of Tennessee but for the most part, you are going to want to fish jigs, soft plastics slow, and I’d also suggest trying blade baits as well in the colder areas.
