Spent a LONG day on the Tennessee River Saturday. Started out at daylight shooting photographs for a magazine article of a kayak excursion with folks from Outdoor Chattanooga. BEAUTIFUL morning for pics... sorry, you'll have to wait for May Issue of Chattanooga Magazine to see them. I was NOT in a kayak, BTW.

But after I got through "working," it was time to fish. Started out downriver harassing some of the spotted bass. They usually turn on real good in April. In an hour or two, I caught about a dozen... all on a white Excaliber Fat Free Fry crankbait. Several of the bigger ones are in my freezer right now. \:\)

After that I headed back upstream and messed around with catfish. I only caught two... an 18 lb. blue and an 8 lb. channel. Then about 1 o'clock I went in search of crappie. Found a bunch! Probably caught 30 or 40 although most were shorts... but I scraped out a dozen big slabs, including one TARP crappie. Of course I stuck a few eater cats throwing the crappie jigs as well.

I'm no good at self-portraits, so no pics of me, HOWEVER, I ran across a friend, Tony Smith who had his son, and his grandson, Jade, out on the river. And take a LOOK BELOW at what Jade caught! Holy Moly! Neither Tony nor I had a scale ... but we're sure it went six-plus. He caught it on one of those non-imitation shiner lures (otherwise known as live bait). Tony is a man after my own heart. And that means life is good and gettin' better every day.
