  1. Barbara, If you move close as predicted, Watts Bar Lake might be your choice to start fishing Tennessee. crappie, Bass, Catfish, yellow perch, etc. will get you started. Welcome aboard. dada 7-12-20 11:44 AM
  2. You have to tell where in these parts you might settle in---- This Tn Anglers gives good info sometimes to those who ask. dada 7-10-20 10:20 PM
  3. Finally got the new motor to plane out for a few hundred yards while breaking it in, just one time. My old 25 would do 23 MPH, the new Tohatsu 20 would do 20. SHUCKS!. Oh well, it starts great, vibrates a little more than the old one & gets great gas mileage. AND it doesn't leave me stranded---- dada 6- 28-20 9:23 PM
  4. The new 20hp Tohatsu works great, but has to be ran 10 hrs before full throttle. dada 6-26-20 7:07 AM
  5. Eddie at aztec looked at the motor when I told how it was running & told me what was wrong & costs to fix it. ALL IN 1 MINUTE! That convinced me to get rid of the 31 year old & get a new one. His prices were $1000 less than other s of the same brand. He ordered a Tohatsu for his store with my order just to get free shipping for me, a savings of $150. dada 6-17-20 9:06 PM Darnit! Eddie has to vacate by Aug 1 because the owners wants to sell the property there. Hope he stays close---- dada 6-18-20 1:07 PM
  6. 55, His name is Eddie & he is owner of Aztec Marine, the name on building is Denney's Marine on Cherokee Blvd, Jefferson City. His location is a few blocks past Carson-Newman. dada 6-17-20 1:10 PM
  7. After 31 year old motor went bad again, I ordered a new one. Found that 2 cycles are not made, so I got a 4 cycle that weighed less than my old one. A 20 hp Tohatsu that pushes my 14" boat better than the Evenrude 25. The dealer in Jefferson City was knowledgeble & knew what I asked, so I will deal with him in the future also. It is great to meet an honest dealer----! I will keep you informed when I get the new one. dada 6-17-20 8:25 AM

    Nitro, You will never "catch up" to me (age), but for some reason, you catch more fish than me. LOL   Happy birthday and many more great days on the lake.   dada  1-16-20  8:19 AM

  11. Welcome Capt17. Is that handle from a FD or PD? Quite a few of retirees who fish here in E. Tn carried a badge. My cap says "Captain", so, if you see me on Douglas in my little old red/white boat, stop & say hello. dada 1-15-20 8AM
  12. Fishnuts, NOBODY moves back North once they have lived in Tennessee! (I spent 30 years in Harvey, Ill, that's how I know) Welcome aboard . Douglas Lake, here I come tomorrow. dada 1-12-20 1:20 PM
  13. Happy Birthday, Crafterbob.     dada 12-31-19   7:21 AM

      Thanks we need to go fishing soon


  14. Happy Birthday  Graham.  Another 10 years more & you will be as good lookin' as me!  LOL    have a great day & get that house built so we can go after those crappie.   dada 11-24-19  8:24 AM

    Happy birthday, Ezell. We always agree to disagree on some issues, but enjoy each other!  LOL   dada 11-2-19  10:23 AM

  16. Happy Birthday, Minnerman. While you were after those "bambis," I was catching all your crappie. Yep, all 4 of them!  LOL  These bluebird skys and dropping levels are keeping most of them hid,  but the water temp started this AM at 67 degrees. Tuesday, the boss (my wife) is going to show me how to catch them!  dada  10-27-19   7:51 PM

  17. Happy birthday Troutgirl. Sign in my basement says "Looking for a woman who can dig worms & filet fish  & has a good fishing boat---Send picture of boat"   However, my WIFE  won't let me get that picture!   LOL   Hope your birthday is a good one.     dada 10-23-19   8:40 AM

      Thanks!  I'll send the pictures to your address on the Dark Water Web.

      Good lookin rig, Troutgirl. Mine is a 14' -Seamore 1986 model on a yellow trailer.    dada  10-24-19   8:14 AMS

  18. KwK, All of us are wacky, we fish! My other vise is a banjo & guitar----3 or 4 times a week, but always save a few days for fishing. dada 7-13-19 8:06 PM
  19. Tube- I fish Douglas for crappie, then  I get desperate & try for bass on Ft. Loudon. We set our goal for 20, then go home as it turns dark. The bass turn off about that time. ( transisition time). They start back up later.  dada 6-7-19  8:15 AM

      I might get over that way one day.  Got grandchildren in Maryville.


      Thanks for the message.

  20. My 2 cents-Did you check the intake hole under the transom? ( if there is one). That boat looks good enough to catch tenn crappie---- dada 5-15-19 5:58 PM
  21. IF IT EVER DROPS--Douglas probably has more crappie, bass & cats than any lake around. Ft "Nasty" ( Loudon) also has the same AND does not have the highs & lows like Douglas & Cherokee in water levels. Since I don't eat fish from the Tennessee River, I give crappie away & throw back the bass & cats. Cherokee used to have giant crappie, but TwRA's stockings of other species have pretty much wiped them out. dada 5-12-19 7:07 PM
  22. Welcome , Bigcat. If you fish below the dams, wear you vests as required. TWRA is known to give tickets for that. dada 4-24-19
  23. Sure would like to know if you were catching  those 25 above or below Dandridge.  I wouldn't fish your "honey hole" even if you gave it to me,   but it's nice to know if all areas are doing the same..   I tried Ft Nasty (Loudon) Wednesday  with bobber in shallow, nothing hit those, but longlined  Turkey Creek & we got 10 crappie.    dada    4-11-19  10:06 PM

      Dada put in at dandridge and went up. Went up one of the main creeks and just started fishing points in one of the creeks and got lucky finding some hungry ones.

  24. Use heavy wiring to avoid overheating. The longer the wires the more "friction loss" there is. dada 4-8-19 12:52 PM
