Percy Priest Lake

Darrell Wardlaw and I did another night-time noodle fishing trip for our DVD. The picture is Darrell and Keith Pruitt, who was along with us, holding a 32 pound Flathead Catfish.

We fished all night and caught at least a dozen fish over fifteen pounds and quite a few smaller ones.

Northern Quebec

I took a little side trip late one evening on a 2 week hunting trip for Caribou on a remote lake in Northern Quebec. I don't remember the name of the lake. We just called it Camp 9.

It was 160 miles by float plane from the base at Squaw Lake and 1200 miles north of Montreal.

I took a boat out and caught these native Brookies on a small red and white spoon. They made a great addition to supper.

Teresa wasn't along on this trip. It was a good thing too. We got stuck in camp by a big snowstorm for 3 extra days before the plane could come and get us.

Reelfoot Lake, TN

Night-time YO-YO fishing with Kyle and Jamil Homra.

Teresa and I were in Samburg, TN to video a bluegill fishing trip, so Kyle suggested that we go Yo-Yo fishing for catfish that night. We're always up for something new, so we set out about 24 yo-yo's as the sun was going down that evening.

Kyle used crawfish and nightcrawlers for bait. We caught 10 or 12 nice cats in about three hours with the yo-yo's. The fish averaged 3 pounds with the largest about 5 pounds.

We had to make the three hour drive back to Dickson that night, so we had to leave around eleven. I'm sure we could have filled a good-sized cooler if we had stayed later.

If you want to fish with Kyle and Jamil, you can call them at Homra's Guide service 731-538-9846.

Reelfoot Bluegills

Reelfoot Lake, Tennessee

Teresa and I went to Samburg, Tennessee to fish for bluegills with Kyle Homra of Homra's Guide Service.

I love to get a bunch of crickets, a bobber, and just take it easy fishing for bream. This was a little more aggressive than that, but it was a ton of fun.

Reelfoot is a scenic area, it's almost like being down on the Bayou. It was a hot, humid day. but the big bluegills were hitting pretty good. We used 12ft ultra-lite rods that really put the sport into landing those big Reelfoot bluegills.

This is the time of year that they are on the bed, so we released them all day. If we had wanted to keep a mess of fish we certainly would have a good dinner of tasty bull bluegills.

Teresa caught a nice catfish along with her bluegills. It was a pretty good fight on that ultra-light pole. I had something big on, but he wrapped me around one of the many stumps and got off before I could get a look at whatever it was.

One thing I really liked about Reelfoot was the fact that it's a fisherman's lake. Due to it's shallow depth and many stumps, there are no ski boats or personal water craft, just smaller fishing boats.

If you would like to fish with Kyle, you can reach him at 731-538-9846.

The weather was hot and muggy, but we caught Redfish and Speckled Trout in the salt water marshes below New Orleans. It made a great show for "Split Rail Outdoors"
