    Thats an interesting place for sure. Ended up with a couple, one on a jig and one flipping into the grass. That little 1lb fish in the grass buried up and sounded like I had a monster on when my rod/line started squeaking. I bet there are some Giants in that place!

    Protect your fish in Hot Weather

    Im bumping that back to the top. This needs to be taken seriously when fishing tournaments this time of year and on into the summer. I seen several fish floating on Saturday after the tournaments weighed in at the Dandridge Ramp. Read over the pinned info and practice it! Please take care of the fish and try to put them back in better shape than when they were taken. I had Hydrogen Peroxide and Rejuvenade along with Ice in my wells Saturday and it worked out really well. Fish were lively and swam off full of energy when they hit the water upon release!

      Oh, yeah.  Ol' Airborne's music collection is of the eclectic variety.  McMurty, REK, Lyle Lovett, all them off-the-beaten-path story-tellers.

    +1 on this one! Line size and stretch I have found is key. I have switched to a 10lb MONO, and here is why. Floro has alot less stretch than mono and that little bit of stretch could mean you landing the fish and not. When fishing baits like a DD22/6XD or heck even a bandit 200/300 with treble hooks you need to have a little bit of give in the line so that the hooks to not rip out of the fishes mouth. The choice to switch to a 10lb MONO and a real cranking rod has changed my hookup ratio tremendously on Cranks. I no longer hate throwing them like I once did. Another Key Aspect is the right reel, alot of guys can throw them on a faster speed reel 6.3:1+ but I simply cannot. I have an older Lews 5.4:1 speed spool reel that I use and it helps me keep the bait down and not over crank. Im no Expert either but thats my 2 and a half Cents on the subject. Keep cranking and experiementing man it will finally click. Dont get discouraged Mind over Matter!!!!
