A Change of Lakes
This summer and more recently we have been heading to South Holston Lake or Watauga Lake to fish for lake trout. But our last two trips were disappointing. So today we are heading for Douglas Lake to fish for crappie.
We’ll be trolling for most of the day out of my pontoon boat. It is an easy and pleasurable way to fish. There’s plenty of room on the boat, you can walk around to stretch your legs or you can sit in one of those comfortable seats and relax until a fish bites. To give you a feel for this kind of fishing, you can watch this little video (1 minute 35 seconds) I put together a couple of years ago.
There are times when silence is the best answer.
Joke of the Day
The drill sergeant making his morning announcements to a group of newcomers in a training camp,stated: "Today, gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news.
First, the good news Private Peters will be setting the pace on our morning run.”
With this the platoon was overjoyed, as Private Peters was overweight and terribly slow.
But then the drill sergeant finished his statement: "Now for the bad news. Private Peters will be driving a truck."
