As I was walking along the banks of the Tennessee River, I spotted this fishing float hanging in a sweetgum tree, hook, line and sinker!

    We see this all around the waterways here! No explanation needed. LOL! Of course, they are luring the elusive "treefish". Great capture, Don.

    Believe it or not this happened to me one time when I was newly married ...
    My husband and I went fishing with his two elderly uncles. I kept getting my
    hook and line caught between big rocks and trees...The uncles gave me
    dagger looks and moved away to another spot...Miracle of miracles in between snags I actually felt something big on my hook and it was a 15 lb Northern that just about dragged me away into the river..Pretty soon the uncles were fishing on each side of me but they didn't catch a thing:) We
    had lots of good eating off that fish I caught. Great shot Donald and thanks
    for bringing back that memory:)
