I could have spent six months trying to sum it up and could not have done a better job.

Fortunately I have a father and several older fishermen friends who taught me most of the lessons outlined in this post as I was growing up. For those of you who were not that fortunate, please read and re-read this until it soaks in. It will go a long way in ensuring you are assisted and/or invited a second time.

Great post Zoomie!

I agree great post! Thats the way it should be, we are not pro's we are fishermen and these waters are our homes and that is one thing we can all relate to.

Awesome post Zoomie. I can't believe that I haven't run into you down on the river as much as I am down there. Hopefully I'll be able to get out of Lowe's for a couple hrs next sunday for the G2G and get to meet some of you guys. Until then Good Luck and Tight Lines

I hate to say this but, as much as I'm on this site this is the first time I've saw this post. All I can say is GREAT READ ZOOMIE !!!! Man did you ever hit a home run with this post. I don't fish tx's anymore and I would enjoy posting more info than I do, if it wasn't for the 2 % of those that want you to find their fish for them (Lurkers). I am not a pro or semi pro for that matter but, if the planets will align just right I can usually catch a few good'ns. I will, and have been more than happy to help those that shoot me a PM. Lurkers normally don't go through that much trouble.

Great read Zoomie. It is the first time I have actually took the time to read the entire article and you have covered all the bases very well. I am a member of about 5 sites but I spend most of my free time here. It is not just the fishing that keeps me here. It is the people. I can't post a bunch of fishing reports that will do the folks here that much good because I'm 5 hours away and have only fished up there one time and that was three weeks ago. It was not the fishing that took me to Lake Douglas. It is the folks that I have come to call my friends that I have been spending many hours with but had never got to shake hands with or sit down and spend time with and share a bowl of Beans and cornbread with that brought me up there. I got to meet some of the finest folks on this Earth that week and I will charrish that time forever. You know who you are that I got to meet and I know there were alot more that wanted to make it but had other comitments which was totally understood. I hope that I can make another trip up there someday, not necessarily to fish but maybe to meet more of the friends I have made and fishing would just be a plus. Comradery was unbelievable with everyone I met while up there. If any one ever gets down here and wants to go fishing you can bet it will happen. I have Old Hickory and J.Percy Priest to fish on and we can fish both if anyone wants to. If any of you folks are fishinga tournament trail that brings your event to one of these lakes you will have fish to catch come tournament day.......... I will show you ever honey hole I have and show you how to fish them and the baits to use. Like I said Zoomie, great read.
