      - Fish Facts:

  In 1967, Tennessean Fred Young began carving pudgy diving plugs with short lips from
  a block of balsa. Fred named the lures Big Os, after his brother, Otis, who not only tested
  the plugs, but he also won tournaments with them.
  Luremaker Cotton Cordell came to an agreement with Fred for Cordell to manufacture this
  New Plug, out of plastic instead of wood. The lure was a huge hit immediately, selling
  more than 1 million in the 1st year and spawning a host of imitations.
 
  TIP: Cast over points, humps, rockpiles and submerged weedbeds, in pools and
          eddies in rivers; use slow/steady and fast/erratic retrieves.

Fisherman´s Prayer
God grant that I may live to fish until my dying day, and when the final cast is made and life has slipped away,
I pray that God ´s great landing net will catch me in its sweep, and in his mercy, God will judge me big enough to keep.

" Thanks for visiting . . . May God Bless You & Keep You Safe "

"Now go out where it is deeper and let down your nets and you will catch a lot of fish!" Luke 5:4
