Sardis Lake Jan.6, 2010 John Woods & Carl Painter
Well I got enough wind in my sail to go crappie fishingi today. Carl Painter invited me down to fish with him from his boat.
On the way down I saw 11 degrees on my truck. Man that's the way to go fishing. All I had to carry was my hat. By the time I got my entire winter wardrobe on it was probably 8:00AM we fished till about 4:00PM. We caught 27 crappiei using 12 ft. BnM trolling poles with live bait fishing in the 20 ft. depth range in front of the dam. Carl baited my hook, told me when I was getting A bite, dipped the fish, took my fish off. Had plenty to eat and drink even had napkins. He said fishing with me was like fishing with that crappie cowboy guy he fished with the day before. Carl said he was thinking about starting A guide service exclusively for senior citizens like me and Gary, the crappie cowboy. Giving A 10 per cent discount like the restaurant's do. ALL YOU DUCK HUNTERS FROM AROUND HAYWOOD COUNTY STAY IN THE DUCK BLIND WITH BRIAN RAMM & JOE WELCH WHERE ITS NICE AND WARM. ME,CARL AND GARY THE CRAPPIE COWBOY WILL GET THESE SLAB CRAPPIE AT SARDIS. Carl I had A great time. Thanks for inviting me down.John Woods
