J.D., you're way off base. Herb Alpert was Romanian and Russian. Next time you put on his tunes be proper and eat his native homeland food. Here is a list of their delicacies:
Ciorbă is the traditional Romanian sour soup Ciorbă de burtă (a soup made from tripe, or the stomach of assorted farm animals)
Ciorbă de peşte "ca-n Deltă" (fish soup prepared in the style of the Danube Delta)
Crosseyed Cricket is closed as Metalpha said. That was a nice place too, not really a paylake. I think some of the trout escaped into the Clinch River because sometimes rainbows and browns are caught below Melton Hill Dam. My wife works less than 5 minutes from the old Crosseyed Cricket. We went to a primitive arrowhead making group get together at Crosseyed Cricket a year or two ago. Pond is still there.
Hey Sarge, Tennessee Jugger (Don) has the BPS Megacast reels and said they're fine, maybe you can ask him.

One was for my gal, it's one of those pink spinning combos, for an early Valentine
Thanks for the weather link, Don. I didn't see as many dead shad today, but I didn't go the same places. The reason I didn't see any at one spot is because the lake is completely frozen. I don't remember ever seeing the entire width of the Emory River frozen. I found a little gap in the ice in one little feeder creek about 35' wide and caught one crappie. I shot-putted a rock as big as a basketball onto the ice and it didn't even budge it?? :confused: It was worth the trip, however, I found
