    Always purchase your license online before a trip. Much easier and you can hit the water running when you get there.

    Yes, you can add a start date to your non resident license when buying online.

    You can have beer on the water, but not on land. Doesn't make much sense, but that's how it is. I know the hard way.

    Huh?

    Do they deliver it with a helicopter or a drone? I am confused. Im from out of town so I defiantly will be following the rules just do not understand this one.

    Steven, suggest you go to mdwfp.com and read page 40 of MS Outdoor Digest regarding Alcohol Boating Safety or submit a question by e-mail. The regulations cover the land AND the water. Just don't want you to get some bad information.

    just drink Coors light. It surely doesn't qualify as beer.
    Crappie bite twice a day. 15 minutes before I get there and 10 minutes after I leave.
    The two loudest sounds are a gun that goes bang when it is supposed to go click and one that goes click when it is supposed to go bang.

    Sorry for the late response guys... Sheww I been busy.
    We got on the water about 9:30am. Did not catch a fish until the wind laid down about 12:00. We caught about 20 or so crappie, several little bass, and one huge alligator gar. Only 7 of the crappie were over 12 inches though... Home waters being Kentucky lake its is REALLY REALLY freaking hard for me to throw back a 11 and 3/4 inch fish.... Sheww truthfully it hurt my feelings a bunch of times.
    We found our best success in about 13 ft of water.

    I was blown away by the size of the water. Google maps does not do it justice. Also I got lucky and did not have the wind to deal with. I cant imagine what its like fishing all of that open water with a wind 10-15 or 20mph.

    Also, Mississippi boys yall really have something to be proud of. I was very impressed with the lake. I will defiantly be back.

    I figured up my total expenses for the trip and well.... I will be back just not nearly as often...

    I froze 2 quart bags of fillets and they are going to taste wonderful.

    Thanks again to everyone that helped a fellow fisherman out with some pointers and advice.

    Thanks for the report. Glad you enjoyed our "little" fishery! If you think that lake is big, come back and see it when is at full pool in the Summer!! TIP: If the wind is 10-15 mph, STAY OFF that big gal!!
