    Bear with me I have some pics from last weeks annual crappie trip to share. We left Wednesday morning for Reelfoot Lake in NW Tennessee. The weather for once cooperated except for a very windy Friday afternoon that kept us off the lake. Sunburns and all we still had a good time. Fished Thursday morning thru Saturday evening. Didn't catch a ton of fish, but was a huge improvement over the past two years there. Thursday had everyone, but me catching a fish or two. Friday I caught the only one. Saturday morning we woke up without a boat. The dock kids couldn't tie a knot to save their life so an hour later they found it on the other side of the lake beached. My brother-in-law and I tied up to a stump and each caught a couple, then it got slow. We decided to move over about ten feet and tie up to a fallen tree and throw on the backside of it. It was impossible to keep more than one pole out at a time. I went thru a ton of hooks due to snags, but it was pretty much a fish for every cast for quite a while. Then it got slow again. Ended up bringing home just over 5 qts of crappie fillets home. Time to start preparing for next year's trip. Thinking about taking our own boats to Mark Twain. Here are the pics!!!

    Grennel that another guy caught

    This was a mean sucker with a big fight. Lots of teeth too! No one knew what it was except the dock kid. Guess they are like gar down there. Very interesting looking fish, almost like a snakehead with a redfish spot on each side of his tail. I caught a big one on Saturday afternoon, but his teeth did a number on my 6 lb line and I didn't get him to the boat.

    I dont see any moccasins in those pics. Did you see many snakes? The one time I went to Reel Foot, the snakes were unbelieveable. The fishing was great but the snakes really creeped me out. Nice Pics.

    Actually Fireman, he wasn't mad. I cleaned all the fish that morning myself and helped him with those in the pic. We did see a couple of snakes, but not near as bad as last year.
