South Holston Lake
Last Friday, 10/8/10, Doug and I fished South Holston for 5-6 hours. We had an interesting, beautiful and enjoyable day on the water.
We had a good catch, bringing home 9 nice fish. We also caught and released 4 smaller lake trout.
|We had a very welcome but unusual catch in that we caught two nice smallmouth bass. The largest weighed 4 1/2 pounds, and the other weighed 3 1/4 pounds. (We don’t usually catch bass while trolling for lake trout.)|
|We also caught our limit of 4 lake trout and we caught 3 catfish. |
The lake trout we all good size:
5 lb 14 oz
5 lb 9 oz
4 lb 15 oz
4 lb 13 oz
The catfish varied in size:
4 lb 15 oz,
2 lb 15 oz
1 lb 9 oz
In total, we had over 38 pounds of fish on the stringer. An average of over 4 pounds per fish! It was a perfect day: beautiful weather, blue sky, no wind, good conversation, exciting fishing and fond memories. What else could you ask for?
It’s true that God does not call the qualified.
Instead, he qualifies the called.

Joke of the Day
Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student nurse, she found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn't need my help to leave the hospital.
After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator.
On the way down I asked him if his wife was meeting him.
'I don't know,' he said. 'She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.'
