MLF pros aid with Center Hill habitat

BYRDSTOWN, Tenn. – Although Center Hill Reservoir is already a hot spot for largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass, the surrounding community should be on the lookout for even more places to catch bass in the near future.

MLF Bass Pro Tour anglers Alton Jones, Alton Jones Jr, Brent Chapman, Cliff Crochet, Kelly Jordon, Mark Rose and Nick LeBrun joined the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency (TWRA), Dekalb County High School Bass Fishing Team, Tyler Anderson of TylersReelFishing and MLF Fishing Management Director Steven Bardin at Tennessee’s Center Hill Reservoir last week during the event at Dale Hollow Lake to complete a habitat restoration project.

The team of volunteers built 20 MossBack Fish Habitat Conservation Cubes, which were deployed in pairs in locations in Indian and Holmes creeks. The GPS locations of the 40-inch structures were recorded on the TWRA habitat barge’s Humminbird Helix 10 and will be available in the coming weeks on the TWRA website. Each cube was weighted down using cinder block anchors supplied by the Dayton Lowes Home Improvement Store No. 2866.

Throughout 2024, Minn Kota and the Major League Fishing Fisheries Management Division will continue to improve habitat on fisheries using the Bass Recovery Zone model near popular tournament destinations.

The next habitat restoration project will take place in Eufaula, Okla., in conjunction with the fourth BPT event of the season.
