          Sardis Lake

                 Sardis can fool you at times. It’s loaded with fish,
          lots of 12” and smaller fish. It takes lots of patience and
          pre-fishing to locate and catch those giants as I call them.
          Don’t get me wrong, I love this fishery, it’s ranked in the
          top 5 crappie lakes in the country for a reason, it’s known
          to produce some Giant Giants.
                 Please bear with me as I learn the weigh-masters
          job. It’s an exciting job and a lot of action. You have to
          pay close attention to what you are doing. I’ll get better
          as time goes on, so if you see me make a mistake, don’t
          hesitate to bring it to my attention. My heart is truly into
          doing a good job.

                 I love crappie fishing, I love the sport and the spe-
          cies. I’m going to make sure all weighed in fish are legal
          and in good condition. So if you have a fish that you think
          may be questionable, please check it before you bring it
          to the scales. We will follow the rules when it comes to our weighable fish. Other than that, we’ll
          see you at Grenada on October 7th. Better have your equipment together, Grenada got some
