About 2 months ago, news broke that a potential world record crappie had been caught in Tennessee.  As it turns out, it wasn’t far up the road from me.  That afternoon, I went with my son to a baseball game just miles from where it was caught.  I was wearing my ETCC shirt, and a gentleman ask me if I’d heard about the catch.  I said “yes” and asked if he knew the young man.

His answer was “he’s my cousin”.  I said “Wow! I’d like to talk to him”.  He pulled out his cell phone, and the next thing, I was talking to Jam Ferguson.  We talked about 10 minutes, and I invited him to go fishing.  It took a while, but today, we made it happen.  His first trolling trip and the crankbaits showed out.  PICO Grenada Green led the way with bandits in crawdad and mistake; both produced.  It was a good morning on the water with 17 keepers.  This kid can fish! Thanks Jam for a day with crappie royalty.
