Photos From a Big Woods Lake Safari

My plan for the morning was to fish Big Woods Lake and figure out how to catch crappie that I have read about coming from the lake. My kayak was decked out with my fishfinder, tackle, my favorite rod and reel, bait, and camera gear. On the fishfinder display I could see fish, but they would not clamp onto my bait. Try as I might, I was skunked again (the story of my angling life).

Fortunately I had my camera gear with me to work with. Beginning with the drive to Big Woods and continuing until I was home, I shot pictures. Other than the false map turtle pictures that are somewhat uncommon, all other species are ordinarily seen if a person is looking for them.     

I am pleased with my photo trophies from Big Woods Lake. It was a fun shoot and I can always buy a fish sandwich!
