Start Laughing

I think it would be good to start this week off with some laughter. So... Here's another funny video by Aaron Wilburn.

A Record Lake Trout
You might remember that I have been fishing some at South Holston Lake and catching some Lake Trout. I heard that they were stocked two and a half years ago as 2 inch fingerings. You may recall that we caught a few of these fish in the 5 pound range. That is an amazing amount of growth for these fish.

Now I have learned something more interesting. Watauga Lake has been stocking Lake Trout for sometime. Now get this... A new Tennessee State record Lake Trout was caught a couple of weeks ago from Watauga. It weighed 22 pounds and 2 ounces. (And I thought the fish we were catching were big!)

Here's TWRA picture of the fish caught by Jack and Mary Forbes. The Knoxville News-Sentinel had a nice article on this record setting fish. Click here to read it.

Joke of the Day
"I've just had the most awful time," said a boy to his friends. "First I got angina pectoris, then arteriosclerosis. Just as I was recovering, I got psoriasis. They gave me hypodermics, and to top it all, tonsillitis was followed by appendectomy."

"Wow! How did you pull through?" sympathized his friends.

"I don't know," the boy replied. "Toughest spelling test I ever had."

Why can't I catch a fish that big? I've been fishing Watauga Lake for ten years and can't even get a catfish that big.
