  • Dave: Well, Johnny it was another great Land Show, man. We started off with old catfish Davy, man. That was just, that was an interesting subject. You’re part of the world over in Greensboro.
  • Johnny: That’s right.
  • Dave: A great relief group ministry, Mr.Wedgworth, Donnie Wedgworth and his friends Christian ministry reaching out, helping, you know, folks in need with tornadoes and hurricanes and feeding folks. And everybody loves that fried catfish.
  • Johnny: Nobody turns down our fried catfish plate. And then we, we stayed with the fishing theme and went up to North Alabama to Smith Lake. Brandon Jackson of Riverside Fly Shop, a friend of ours, and gave us a report on the, the near historic levels of flooding on Smith Lake.
  • Dave: Yeah.
  • Johnny: And, and then also talked to us about the unique fishery we’ve got right there in the tail race of Smith Lake Dam and the rainbow trout that we’ve gotten. So y’all want to check out river Riverside Fly Shop.

Big Ben’s been with been with Alabama AG Credit for 10 years doing a great job and they’re, they’re financing anything and everything out in the countryside. Having, having stellar years, banner years, probably the best years they’ve ever had. So much of our business was Southeastern Land Group. So always appreciate big Ben and his team.
  • Johnny: Yeah. And then we talked to Brian Watts, who’s the president of our timber sales division, gave us kind of a report. And he answered a question. I wonder, does he ever advise land owners not to cut timber? And he kind of talked to us about the scenarios, a recent experience that he had with that. So Brian is always going to give you trustworthy advice. He’s going to do a good job for you.
  • Dave: Oh, speaking of advice, we had to get you some advice today. We had to get Scott Mills in to try to help you on your Turkey call

  • Johnny: We need somebody who can close the deal.
