Kerr Lake, 6/19/20

We headed up to Kerr Lake for a day of fishing. We ended up in the Anderson Creek area. The lake level had been up pretty high... around 317' asl, and finally came down to 310' asl. It;s normally about 300' asl. Anyway, here's a few pics from the day..we were fishing with 5" yum dingers (watermelon & pearl), rigged weightless & weedless.

Jon Boat Fish Finder

We had been needing a depth finder on the jon boat, but didn't want to spend the $$ for one. I had an old Lowrance x22a from about 1996, but the transducer was bad. A replacement transducer cost more than I could buy a complete working used system on the web. I put a message out on the internet, and found a guy who had an old transducer with a bad unit, and I got that. I made a bracket for the rear of the boat, modified an old CB radio bracket to mount the x22a on the inside of the transom, and got it all wired up. This is electronics on the cheap for fishing  :-) Here's a few pics...

Atkinson Mill Pond, 6/13/20

Debbie and I took the jon boat up to Atkinson Mill Pond for a bit of fishing. We traveled at least 2 miles up the Little River feeder. The water was pretty muddy, but the weather was great! Here's a few pics...

Moccasin Creek, 6/12/20

Debbie and I went out to Moccasin Creek for a little fishing today. Didn't catch much of any size, but you can tell Deb was enjoying herself. It's a beautiful place to fish!
