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
Congratulations to Braxton and Lane for their 26th place finish at Douglas last week. Before the tournament they were 10th in the state in the points and after a 26th place finish out of 154 boats with 5 for 8.83 they should move up a couple more spots. Everything on Rapala DT6’s in Shad colors. Way to go guys.
I fished Tim’s today from 8am until 3pm. I caught and released 20 Smallmouth for the day. 18 were short all ranging between 10 ind 14 inches but 2 were right at 19 inches each. Everything on soft plastics rigged on a 3/32 VMC Weedless Finesse Jig. www.vmchooks.com Sufix 20lb braid and a long 8lb Sufix fluorocarbon leader. www.sufix.com More Thursday Lord willing. Rick McFerrin www.tennesseebassguides.com Water temp was 64 degrees and the normal Tim’s water clarity.

I haven’t posted any new stuff for several weeks…………..BUT……will have some great pics from Lake Hartwell of Spots we caught this past week—54 Spots in 2 1/2 days////I will post as soon as I get the pic’s Rick
Thankfully the 90 degrees and high humidity is gone and I can get back on the water for more than a couple hours at a time. Ronnie and I fished Tim’s on Monday had 9 on and put 7 Smallmouth in the boat (No 18 inch keepers) everything on soft plastics and a VMC Finness Weedless Jig www.vmchooks.com and Sufix Braid with a Sufix Fluorocarbon leader. www.sufix.com today I fished Center Hill alone had 4 Smallmouth, 2 Largemouth and 4 Spots. (No 15 inch Largemouth or keeper Smallmouth) the 4 Spots were all in the 12 inch range. 2 of my 10 hit the NEW Green Gizzard Shad DT6. Check the new colors out at Rapala.com Total for the week 17 in the boat no keepers. HOWEVER I’m thankful to be back on the water. Main Lake Water temp on Tim’s and Center Hill was 76. More Lord willing next week. Rick McFerrin www.tennesseebassguides
