Do you love big bluegill?
Back in the old days the old mountain men would get together for a rendevous , Tootie and I were just wondering who would be interested and like to join us in early Sept on Reelfoot Lake in Tennessee for a Old fashion bluegill rendevouis . This wont be a fishing tournament but just a BBG get together for a good time catching fish, eating good,swapping flies and lies. Does this not sound like too much fun ! We arn't getting any younger, let us know what you think! LOFR
Good Luck and have fun at Reelfoot. I was there in May and fishing was tough. I stayed at Blue Banks, good food and great people. Johnny, lots of places to rent boat at Reelfoot. Wish I was on here more often, I would have met up with you guys. Watch the stumps and snakes (haha). Northside of lake, is usually better fishing.
I have never had any luck at Reelfoot fishing either, hoping Lord of the Fly Rods is going to change that for me!
hey Dewayne;; just load up and come on down!!
Yes- if anyone reads this and wishes to join us, do so. I am prepared to rent a boat but I am no captain, more of a 1st mate.Things will work out well no matter what - if I fish from shore or boat. Someone said there are tons of docks as well but I want to get out on those stumps! My rigs are made up to get out on top of the umbrellas.
By afternoon, I am sure we will see some fish -
If you get a late start on it - no worries- meet us there Friday night or call and let us know you are coming in for Saturday a.m. If you are heading down and want to touch base: 630.235.2162 - ye old cell phone..
