By Big Papa - Posted on 11 June 2010

My name is Greg Sullivan aka Big Papa. My home lake is Lewis Smith lake. I have a Predator by War Eagle with Yamaha 90 4 stroke. I slow troll double minnow rigs. I have tried long line tangling, not too much fun there. Pulled crankbaits on Wheller in the last Crappie USA tourney, loaded up on catfish. I use B and M poles, Humminbird electronics, Minn Kota I-pilot trolling motor. Looking foward to meeting some of yall on the water.

Hey Big Papa, i don't know how good fishing is on Smith but you have the best looking lake!!! I thought i read you were going fishing @ night. Probably only way to stay out of plesure boats way. I'm a Sullivan on my grandmother Malone's side of family. Hello cuze. ha.

Hi Danny,
Yea Smith is hard to fish, deep and clear. Maybe I'll see you at the family re-union ha ha. Do you ever long line troll???

Bib Papa, no i don't do any kind of fishing method other than hand pole or cork & minnow if that's what it takes. But as Smith is clear Tenn-Tom is usually dingy at best so don't have to fish as deep.

A flat is just as it sounds. This is an area of shallow water that has no defined drop into deeper water. The water depth is uniform or gets deeper very gradually. Flats can be found at the backs of all the bays, in coves within the bays and on the main lake where the flat land adjacent to the river was covered up by water when the rivers were backed up by damming.
