Katie, please let me assume you have Google Earth, search Open Lake Tennessee. It is to the right of the Mississippi River. Once you have it, look to the right for a slough called Right Hand Arm. Just below is another slough called Goose Pond. Zoom in on Goose pond. It is surrounded by Cypress trees in the water. Note the Cypress trees in the middle of the pond. Cypress Trees keep their leaves year round so there is always shade. No need for fancy lures here. Toss white spinner bait and hang on! Or, if your heart can take it, floating frog! Ka-Boom!!!

That's West Tennessee Swamp fishin'! Only way in is a four wheeler draggin' your flatbottom boat. Leave before dark 'cause the skeeters reign supreme when light fades!

 

Bob, I looked at Goose Pond and this is my reply: YOU"RE SOUTHERN KATIE! Or I'm Northern Bob. That's Katie water. Or where I fish is Bob water. 

 

Either way, we're kinfolk.

^This^ made me laugh. That's exactly how I feel about froggin'. Frog fishin' is the cardiologist's best friend, for I'm guessing it's stopped more hearts than Big Macs.

Gets even more interesting when the trees start sprouting dinosaurs ?

Wait a minute, cypress trees ain’t got leaves……..

Sure they do, and the trees are also deciduous. When they loose their leaves the branches become bare, hence their name. Bald Cypress. I have found that not all leaves are shed and some keep them year round. The leaves resemble pine needles so to assume that they don't have true leaves is certainly understandable.

...and Catt will back me up on this, if you want a gator, just toss a buzzbait. They'll chase it back to the boat so you better have a high speed reel ?

Although many conifers are evergreen, bald cypress trees are deciduous conifers that shed their needlelike leaves in the fall.

And if anyone has any doubts they're welcome to come down here and help sweep cypress leaves and cypress balls (the seeds, maybe half the size of golf balls) off my roof and patio. ?

I have to clean those balls out of my boat every time we go down south. Those needles/leaves are about the stickiest things in the world, they grab a weedless weightless plastic worm like nothing I’ve ever encountered

I’ve fished a lot of places like that, can’t count how many times I got the boat stuck on one dead center and had to dance all around to free it

Last weekend got the whole lake by ourselves. My wife and I took the boat out for a quick run and to be part in a production of Gotham Garage (by a friend requested). This is my only fishing hole and don’t plan to move or fish anywhere soon.

This is my salty fishing hole. We flew over my neighborhood OTW to Aruba in August.

I'm lucky because I can wheel my kayak half a block down and go striper fishing.

 

This is my 'home' fishing hole.  20 minutes from home and not pressured.  It holds good LMB & Chain Pickerel

I have a favorite SMB hole, but I keep that one quiet.

This lake is by far our favorite lake. I’ve talked about it a few times before. It’s a bit of work to launch the boat and more work to get to fishable water. Well worth it since leprechauns and unicorns live at this lake. ?
