TVA Fish Survey 
Today Ralph and I are going to participate in one of the fish surveys conducted by TVA. The survey we are going on will start at Swann’s Marina and survey game fish Douglas Lake in that general area.

I participated in the survey done in 2007. Today’s survey will be similar; you can check out my pictures from 2007 here:
