Fishing Outing

On the weekend of April 29 the troop will went on a fishing outing to Watts Bar lake. We stayed in the campground at Roane County Park (near Midtown on the Caney Creek branch of Watts Bar). We will spent most of the day on Saturday fishing and we had planned to do some night fishing on Saturday evening but the weather did not cooperate. A total of 43 fish were caught and there were be prizes for the smallest, biggest, and ugliest fish. The ugliest was a snapping turtle, the smallest was a minnow that bit an unbaited hook, and the largest was an 8.25 lb carp. Most of the scouts completed the outdoor part of the fishing merit badge -- we still have a little work to do at a Monday meeting. We met at Kern UMC at 6:00PM on Friday, April 29th, and returned to the church around 10:20AM on Sunday morning. The cost for this outing was $10 to cover the cost of food and bait.
