I hope to use this blog as an avenue to express my thoughts and adventures of all of my fishing expeditions and any other journeys I may undertake.

Enjoying Some Fall Fishing
Well for the past couple of days a couple of my fishing buddies and I have fished some of the local waters near home. The trips were more of getting outdoors and enjoying the great weather we have been having here in Alabama, than landing fish. The fishing this time of year in the South can be slow for the gills and bass, and the recent trips prove that to be true. I am looking forward to next weeks trips because we should be able to get into some crappie deep around the floating piers on Smith. This time of year the crappie move up under the piers and feed on the minnows and small shad that are found there. The long crappie poles and tube jigs are excellent for fishing the deep water in confined quarters.
This gill buried this popper down deep
A little variety here with the catfish on the olive bugger. It put up quite a fight on the 4wt.
Jeff landed this nice one on the same colored bugger on the 4wt.
