Big Alabama 12/3/2013

High near 80 after some freezing nights last week and snow in Gatlinburg. The water was up a couple of feet but still a beautiful clear. Managed 2 crappie before lunch when the wind came up strong enough to nearly blow my paddle off my lap. The biggest was 13" which is the biggest I have caught up there.

They were caught tight line about 8-6' down. I saw a 6' gator swimming along side about 8' off the side of the yak. He was just under water but was real visible in the clear water.

No other boats at all on the water.
