Tim Sullivan (imograss on TNDeer) and Craig Beard made their second foray down from Lyles, Tenn. to fish with me Saturday. Good water, good bait, good fishermen... we whacked 'em good. There were very few dry drifts.


If you don't happen to notice, Craig is a hardcore Vandy Fan who says he quit deer hunting because they made him wear orange. I told him I'd try not to hold it against him.

No absolute monsters today, but we tagged a few quality fish.

Craig did get his line broke on what I believe had great likelihood of being a monster, but... that's fishin'!


I can't believe I didn't make Tim smile... that's not like me.


Who's fish is bigger? Oh wait, size doesn't matter.

Once the water cranked up full steam, we messed with cats for a while.. but then spotted several gar working an area. We made my first effort of the year to gar fish "on purpose." I'm not sure, but I believe we may have turned Tim into a gar-fishing fanatic. It was some fun watching those big prehistoric beasts come up and eat your nylon. It was a hot, hot day and we were pretty toasted by the time we called it quits.


Gar are just too cool!

But I believe a good time was had by all... which means life is good and gettin' better every day!
