Thanks for the report. I seriously doubt that the Tennessee river has crested yet (although Guntersville lake might since most of the rain seems to have fallen in southwest Tennessee), even with the spillage. It usually takes at least 48 hours give or take for Flint creek to crest AFTER the rain stops. I know there is a lot more water coming down from Tennessee and it will most likely take another 24 to 48 hours for Wheeler to crest anyway. I could be wrong and I hope I am! As soon as the water starts to recede I think I will be able to find several places to catch some crappie from the bank! Today I tried several places and only managed one 10 incher, one 6 incher and one about 2.76544 inches. (smile)

Good luck and good fishin'

Kerry
