“With every trip I collect new mementos, though few are collected in scrapbooks. And all who fish for bass across the land collect them too. They are the images from first light to last and from first fish to last. And we’d share them in a minute. Some recall particular triumphs, often preserved in snapshots and clippings, while others we tend to hide, at least until the time we’re ready to laugh about them. Daybreaks, canebrakes, heartbreaks, muggy nights, and foggy mornings. A hundred things that worked, and a thousand more that should have. That’s bass fishing.” – George Kramer
Located on the south side of Birdsong Creek, 1.5 miles up our deep buoyed channel, entering from the scenic Tennessee River. The BIRDSONG sign is located on the island at mile marker 103.5 TRM, only 3 miles south of the New Johnsonville bridge and 13 miles north of the I-40 bridge.
Our entire facility is perfectly suited for fishing tournaments up to 300 boats. In the photo above you can see: 1) our 200 foot walkway allows fishermen to tie off their boat while they weigh in; 2) our dockside store offers fresh, hot coffee, bait and snacks; 3) our covered weigh-in pavilion affords protection from the elements at weigh-in time and includes a large overhead readout, digital scale, and live-release tube; 4) large overflow free parking area; 5) security lighting at ramp for after-hours boat loading/unloading; 6) our main free parking area is graveled and extra large; 7) our concrete ramp is 55 feet wide and can accommodate up to three fishermen loading/unloading at one time; 8) we have 50 boat slips for those fishermen that want to come ahead of tournament time and dock their boats; 9) we also have large, oversized boat slips for houseboats and pontoons.
