2016 Zoomed by Can 2017 Slow Down Some


Moving is never easy, especially when one gives up 30 years of memories living in one place. Cathey and I have adjusted well to the move to Tennessee, living close to all our grandchildren and meeting some wonderful neighbors in our little subdivision. The only downside to the move was losing fishing time. I hope to recover some of that lost time in 2017.
As I get older the years seem to pass off faster, which makes me cherish every fishing trip I
make now. I have been very fortunate with my health over the years, and I hope I can continue to stay in fairly good health in the coming years. Sure I have aches and pains like most all of us do but nothing significant enough to keep my off the water.
  One of my first trips in early March will be fishing Lake Lindsey
located in beautiful David Crockett Park in Lawrenceburg. It is noted for having some super size gills that will kick off my bluegill quest for 2017. Another lake I plan on wetting some flies in is Laura Hill Lake located south of Lawrenceburg. This is one of the prettiest lakes I have seen in middle Tennessee, high banks, crystal clear water, and noted for super size gills, smallmouth bass, spotted bass and walleye. As for trout fishing the Caney will be one stop destination. I will be making a number of float trips with my son-in-law on this beautiful tailrace for the coming year. I will still wade the tailrace below the dam, but I have come to realized if one is going to be successful fishing the Caney Fork, you need to float it. I’m looking forward to a successful fishing season and HOPE ALL YOU GUYS HAVE THE SAME------HAPPEY NEW YEAR!!!!

Happy New Year buddy! That lake is beautiful and has Big Bluegils! Can't wait.

Bill, You'll probably have better luck catching bluegills in your new waters than you'll have in slowing down time but, in any case, good health and good fishing to you in the new year.

Here is too a wonderful and happy and healthy New Year 2017! That is a beautiful lake that you have pictured here. I could see myself walking the bank and stalking some big Bluegills. Alas, I will leave that up too you, Bill.....
I await many posts as we follow you through your new fishing season on new waters.

Happy New Year Bill, I'll be waiting to see some slab bluegills and big Caney Fork browns that you will no doubt hook into when things warm up again!
