Lake Weiss

This first picture shows where we put the boat in the water on Monday and Tuesday. It's a little place called Roosters. I took this shot from the lake. We did a whole lot of fishing in 3 days and a little bit of catching. Do you know what it feels like to be on the lake when it's about 28 degrees? Well, that was what we had on Tuesday morning. We were in the boat 11 and 1/2 hours on Tuesday and only had one keeper crappie. Monday was bad too, because of the wind, but we did have some fish. Wednesday was the best day, but the fish were very scattered.

On Wednesday, we put the boat in at Mud Creek which is a section of the lake we had never fished. But we did catch fish and could of caught a more, but we decided that we had better head back to Tennessee. The picture above shows out live well after I had put the third fish into it on Wednesday. They were all big crappie.

Jokes of the Day

French President Jaques Chirac, tired of all of the anti-french jokes, since the start of the invasion of Iraq, has announced with great national pride that the super secret French Space Agency will send the first manned mission of three French astronauts to land, and walk on the Sun.

President Chirac stated "This mission will be of historic importance to the world, and restore France's rightful place in the history of the world."

NASA space scientist's, stunned at the news, asked Mr. Chirca what technology they had developed to keep the astronauts from burning up long before they reached the Sun?
The French President sniffed and replied "Don't be stupid, we are going at night".

I knew you two were going to get cold and believe me I though about you on those cold days. I am glad that you caught a few before you went home. Ken and I went for a couple of hours this morning and caught six keepers. We put them back before we came home. You needed them to make your mess larger. Oh by the way we make hushpuppies to eat with them instead of cornbread. Yes I know, more gressy. The reason we don't keep them anymore is fish makes me deathly ill now or catfish does and I am afraid to eat any kind anymore. The place you put in at is the same place we had a camper at one time. We fished Mud creek a couple of times but didn't have any luck. Helen
