Reel Singing in Nashville!

I think of Old Hickory Lake located near Nashville, as the music lake. Why, you may ask? Because Old Hickory has been known as a home for Country Music Star's. In fact, Johnny Cash's home was located on the lake until it burned a few years ago.
I hope to hear the music of my reel singing because of a big fat bass on my hook. Me and Buttermilk my fishing buddy, fished a small cove on Old Hickory lake Saturday.
The weather was perfect (66 degrees, partly cloudy and calm) which should make for a great day of fishing. Our plan was to paddle around the cove in our kayaks and catch a few Bass. We arrived at Rockland around 6:20 am. Below you can see Buttermilk giving it his all.
We were near the Old Hickory Lock and dam so I took this photo to give you an idea of the dam.
Unfortunately, fishing was difficult and I didn't catch a fish. I tried every lure in my tackle box but no luck. Buttermilk did happen to catch one little old bream after about 3-1/2 hours of fishing.  
Since the fishing wasn't good, I decided to take a few pictures of the lake and wildlife.

I didn't hear any reel singing on this day, but a bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work. Hey, want a little bait humor, then check out my outrageous cartoons on the top tab. Hope you enjoyed. Hey checkout my Lake decor maps, Great gift for the lake lover
