    Well carried the girls to hotsprings for the weekend . A trip much needed to get away from all the stress of work and just a weekend away with the girls. Well of course the first stop was the mall for a little shopping for the girls ,and then we met up with chrisb and met his family , real good people . Chris then carried us down to lake degray to see if we could lip some croppie , and man the bad luck was broken . I got the honor of seeing my daughter catch her a real nice croppie ,and of course that made my weekend ,Chris and i continued to fish into the later part of the night and ended up with 22 real nice croppie . Regina ,Ashley ,and i got a motel and had a real much needed rest and then got up the next morning and went back to degray for some sightseeing around the park. The park attendants have been doing some cleaning and rebuilding of the park grounds and really got it looking good . (So yall dont miss the degray gathering .)We then headed home for the end of our weekend . It was a much needed trip to get away ,the croppie was just a bonus .

    That's a nice mess of fish. I see you found them up there before I did. Thing I like is didn't have to put the boat in the water to catch them. Next you go up there, have Chris take you out on the lake and fish around the cliffs and rock wall. That whole lake is gorgeous. I would love to live up there. Those fish aren't far from spawning. Would like to find a cove with shallow water and see how those crappie do. Catfish aren't far behind. See ya later and enjoy that Graveyard shift.

    Same here Kevin, looking forward myself to meeting everyone in May. From what I've seen of Lake Degray it should be a blast. That lake is so clean and it is A BEAUTIFUL PARK. They have really done a nice job around there. Wish that lake was in my backyard.
