Not big but quite a fight on the 4 wt he hit the size 6 crawfish
Jason with his 18" spot--they never quite fighting
This was a male spot caught in one of the many tree tops on Ryan Creek
The Rhododendron's are in full bloom all over the lake
One of three Bull Bluegills I landed using the size 6 crawfish--really surprised the bluegill's hit this pattern--but these big boys must have been hungry---I am now 53 away from my goal!!
Spot went after the size 10 Betts Popper--this was the only fish on top all morning
There are a lot of big homes on Smith Lake, if I was offered any home on Smith this would have to be my favorite. This house was moved from the country side in New York. All the rafters, floor joist, exposed beams inside the house and parts of the interior walls were removed from a barn in the area. The sun room in this house is setting out over the water; steel beams which is anchored in the rocks support the sun room itself. The garage is off to the right. The house is actually called the barn.
