Reelfoot Lake, located in northwestern Tennessee near the Mississippi River, is a 15,000 acre lake that was formed by the 1811-12 earthquakes on the New Madrid fault-line. This shallow lake, averaging less than five feet, is swamp-like with cypress trees submerged in many areas of the lake. A region once mapped by Daniel Boone, one that previously housed the only commerical crappie fishing operation in the world, Reelfoot Lake has long been known as an outdoor recreation destination. This is what attracted us and the pursuit of spotting eagles.
