I fished Woods yesterday, the Smallmouth above was my best 2. One was a little over 18 the other right on 18. Both was caught on a Arashi Parrot Flat 7. Ronnie is holding our best in 3 1/2 hours this morning all caught on a one of the following 3 Rapala DT6 Red Craw-Demon-Caribbean Shad www.rapala.com and Sufix 6 and 8lb Pro Mix mono www.sufix.com . Big fish was 4lb 12 ounce and total for best 5 was 14lbs. Water temp on Woods Tuesday was 47 to 54 degrees and 3/4 of the lake has a lot of color. Normandy has good color and the area we fished ranged from 50 to 52 degrees. Glad to have Ronnie back out today-he has been under the weather—Thanks for visiting my site.

From The McFerrin’s
This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about. His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus because he will save his people from their sins.”
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:” The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel (which means “God with us”). When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
The Lord has blessed us abundantly and we pray his blessing upon you and your family!
I fished Normandy yesterday caught 5 with the 2 above being the best. Big fish was 3.38lbs and all caught on a Rapala DT6 Caribbean Shad www.rapala.com and Sufix 6lb Pro Mix Mono www.sifix.com. Water temp was 48 degrees and all the fish were on shallow gravel. Today I fished Tim’s with the intent of spending the day throwing a float & fly which I did for 2 hours with no takers. So I picked up the VMC Weedless JIg www.vmchooks.com and soft plastics and caught 8 Smallmouth and 5 Largemouth (BUT) no keepers. Every fish was holding close to cover and the thicker the better. Water temp was 53 degrees-and no sign of turn over in the areas of Normandy or Tim’s that I fished. That’s all for this week. Rick McFerrin www.tennesseebassguides.com
Fished Normandy this morning from 7 am until 12:30 pm caught and released 3 Spots-2 Largemouth biggest was 3 1/4lb and 1 17inch Smallmouth all on a Rapala DT6 Red Craw www.rapala.com and Sufix 6lb Clear Blue Pro Mix Mono www.sufix.com Water temp was between 56 and 58 every where I fished. I think we should be having turnover soon-this normally helps after it settles. More later this week Lord willing. Rick McFerrin www.tennesseebassguides.com
Congratulations to Braxton and Lane for their 26th place finish at Douglas last week.
