If You're Looking For The Fish, They're Under This Tree

The New Madrid Earthquake of 1811-1812 created what we now call Reelfoot Lake in Tennessee. Up until 2003 Reelfoot Lake was the only legal commercial fishery for crappie. So much history surrounds this lake, and the fishing is incredible.
The militia was called in at one point back in the early 20th century to take back our rights to fish the lake from a group of people who wanted to make it private property.
Thank goodness for a “well armed militia”, right?..

This lone cyprus tree is a well known hangout for the local crappie.
