Good Morning!

We had a good day on Douglas Lake. We did a little catching and lots of fishing. We caught a mixed bag total of only 8 fish: 2 bluegill, 2 crappie, 2 catfish, 1sauger pike and 1 drum. Not what I would call a good day but we had fun and good boat ride. The water temperature was 74.5 degrees, still a little warm for good fall crappie fishing. We saw tons of fish on the depth finder but not many hits. We had hoped for lots of crappie like the one in the picture (It measured 12.5 inches).

We were amazed to see the lake so low. We had to put in at the public ramp at Dandridge (Going across that narrow bridge is really exciting!).This picture shows the ramp, and the low level of the lake.

On the way back home, we stopped by Swann's Marina. See the picture that shows the marina almost entirely on dry land, and where there is water it is only inches deep. The place is closed until spring or later.

Quote of the Day

"You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you're going,
because you might not get there."

~ Yogi Berra

Joke of the Day
A man and his wife are driving home and having an argument about his driving. Angry, the man looks at his wife and says "Why did God make you so beautiful but so dumb?" The wife thought for a minute then replied "Well, he made me beautiful so you would love me, and he made me dumb so I would love you!"
