Here’s another photo of another huge catfish that Ken Brashears “Big Catfish King” caught from his pier on wheeler Lake near Rogersville, AL. As you can tell from this photo and from the photo the catfish population is doing well on the lake.
The Black Nosed Crappie is a strain of black crappie first described in the White River basin of Arkansas. The Black Nosed Crappie have a black stripe running from the top of their dorsal fin, down their nose and over their bottom lip. This one in the photo below was taken a week or so ago from the Tennessee River near Waterloo, Alabama. This fish was taken by Alan Fountain, thanks Alan for sharing your photo.
Richard Taylor dropped by the local Gander Mountain store in Florence, Alabama to pick up a set of digital scales to weight a huge bass he had caught earlier in the day on a spinnerbait on the Tennessee River. This beauty pulled the scales down to 7.10 pounds. Thanks Richard for dropping by and showing us this nice bass. Hope you have use for those scales all year.
Here’s another huge smallmouth caught by Hunter McClanahan that weighed in at 6.04 pounds.
Here are a couple of Rebel crankbaits I recently did for a client. Hope he’s happy with the results.

Check out this photo I received today from Alan Hall of a friend of his “Dick Taylor” with a 15 pound largemouth caught out of a private lake in Mississippi. Man what a “HAWG“!!
The two people in the photo are Ben Knight and Scout McIntyre. The fish weighed right at 8 pounds. It was caught on Upper Bear Creek on a chrome rattle trap. Nice fish Ben and Scout!
