  1. I’ve never run braid on my light reels, just my heavy bass reels for spinnerbaits and frogs. It’s a great idea though. I’ll rig up a 6’ dock shooting crappie rod like that for Norris. Thanks for the tip!
  2. thank you Mac. Do you upgrade your equipment size? I’ve read about some really large trout coming out of there.
  3. I took the wife for a “get me out of this house” drive yesterday to Norris Dam. I’ve wanted to check this place out for a while. I’ve read some articles that the trout fishing below the dam is great, with some really nice size fish being there. I didn’t fish yesterday, just a general scouting trip. The river sure looks good and very promising. I’m going to make the next trip a fishing one for sure in the next couple of weeks maybe, before deer season starts at least. I’m thinking heavier gear would be in order since I’m so used to catching stockers with ultralight equipment. I also read that shallow diving crank baits or stick like baits similar to the rapala is really productive. Anyone here fished there? Any tips would be appreciated. Not honey holes of course….finding my own fish is part of the fun. Anyways. Ya’ll have a great day and be safe out there.
  4. Well, I was thinking this idea of Biden’s of banning Ammo imports was sure to spread. Maybe even spread to firearms…..you know, to place further limits on availability. I’m sure glad there is nothing to worry about.

  6. Helps them win elections I’m sure he gets a signed “” valentine from Pelosi and Schumer every year for that.
  7. The GOP may not be perfect, and honestly a few members act like covert Democrat party members, but don’t kid yourself. Your party has been clear about all guns. If they could completely disarm us all, they would.
  8. Have you ever seen the complete version? By no means is it a “case closer”, but it does look innocent enough.
  9. That reminds me of the old dude going fishing in bear country with 3 young dudes. As they was getting their gear out of the truck, Young Dudes saw Old Dude put a .22 revolver in his pocket. They asked him “what’s that?” Old Dude says, “My bear gun.” Young Dudes started laughing and one said “that ain’t gonna stop no bear!!” As they all just laughed and laughed……he said. “It ain’t for the bear, they’s 3 of you and if I shoot each of you in the knee, I think I’ll have time to get back here to the truck.”
  10. It ain’t often you run across a high dollar fly rod laying by the stream!!!
  11. They musta been last on stage. Hard to see or stand by then…..lol
  12. We’ve been riding that train for the last seven months.
  13. Yes indeed. SO true. If we could just elect a POTUS that wasn’t a DC bought and paid for politician that just wanted to make America great again…….<sigh> Hey…that’s an IDEA..!!!!
  14. Wow..... I don’t even personally know anybody that’s been shot. If they have, they ain’t talk’n!!! I’m with mikegideon on this one!
  15. There are many people in this country that carry guns anywhere they want everyday and are not restricted at all by what the gun laws are. They probably number in the millions. They also commit armed robbery, murder, rape, sell drugs, rob banks, burglarize homes, jack cars and trucks, commit home invasions and such like. They will continue to carry guns anywhere they want everyday and will not be restricted at all by what the gun laws are. They probably number in the millions.
  16. I used a 410 in my younger days when I first started hunting. I used number 4’s I think. Later I went to a 22 rifle. Remington 552 speed master. I sure wish I still had that thing. As far as eating squirrels, I always liked to flour them up with salt and pepper and fry them, then take the meat off the bones and make dumplings. The time in the dumplings tenderized the meat really nice.
  17. I wonder if anyone’s ever thought about autonomous state status? LOL....
  18. I did try it but it didn’t do a thing for me. Zero results. A fad IMO. I have pain from lots of injuries from football, motorcycles, construction work, fighting in my younger days, etc......A total waste of money I don’t have as far as I’m concerned.
  19. It’s simple really. The more vague the Democrats can make the law, the more guns they can confiscate from you and make you have to go to court to fight to keep them. Most can’t afford to do that and they know this. Voting with feelings and emotions (I want to vote for the first black/woman/Mexican/ muslim President etc...) rather than your brain most always has consequences and disaster.
  20. I suppose we just wait and see. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2021/05/24/heres-why-it-could-take-years-for-ammunition-to-become-readily-available-again-n2589901
  21. Nope. Nada. Nutt’n to see here folks!
  22. Taste like alligator....hmm....maybe that’s another reason they are called alligator gar. Not just for the snout.
  23. That’s about all I use unless I tie a fly on behind a small clear float. Like right now the Caddis hatch is on and a Caddis fly is doing good. The float lets me use my ultralight open face and still float a fly down the river. But, most Caddis flies are black and an a black Rooster Tail seems to work good too, just not today! LOL!
  24. My fishing buddy and I had a great day today. Great conversation and great company. The peanut butter N crackers washed down with ice cold Coke was delicious. The weather was perfect. The Hiwassee River was clear and cold. The crowd did not show up and I only saw 6 folks out fishing. A light breeze kept us cool when the sun got high. I did not loose one Rooster Tail all day. My waders didn’t leak and I didn’t fall in . We got a late start and didn’t get on the river until 9:30. The fish quit biting at 9 so we didn’t catch a thing......BUT......My fishing buddy and I had a great day today. Lesson learned: It ain’t always about the fish!!
