A Different View

From the Boat
Here’s an interesting view looking down two of the fishing rods. We’ve got strong rod holders, and heavy duty rods and reels that we use when fishing for lake trout. The line is 50# test, and reels count the amount of feet that has been let out. Sometimes that line is going out to water depth of over 70 feet where the big lake trout lay in cool waters.


The picture above shows the right side of the boat. We have an identical setup on the left side. Then on the back of the boat we have two more rigs, giving us a total of six rods when we are trolling. We usually travel 1.7-2.0 MPH as measured by a Garmin combination GPS & depth finder. You might wonder about water depth. Usually we are trolling in 125-180 feet of water, but it is un uncommon to pass over areas that exceed 220 feet.

I hope to be on the lake today see in real life what is in that picture above. I hope you have a great weekend! See you Monday!

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
I heard this the other day,
“Some take life for granted;
others take life with gratitude.”
We have lots to be thankful for and
don’t forget to express your thanks.

Joke of the Day

Recently, while attending a dinner party, by way of conversation, the guest seated beside me asked "Do you stir your coffee with your right hand or your left?”

To which I replied "My right hand”.

The response "Interesting indeed, I stir mine with a spoon!”


A woman went to her dentist to have her dentures adjusted for the fifth time. She said they still didn’t fit.

“Well,” said the dentist “I’ll do it again this time, but no more. There’s no reason why these shouldn’t fit your mouth easily.”

“Who said anything about my mouth?” he woman answered.

“They don’t fit in the glass!”
