Stretch and Ruger migrated East to Chattanooga to chase big blues this weekend. We decided to make just a quick "exploratory" foray onto the water this evening. We stuck two or three small fish real quick, but hadn't had lines wet for ten minutes when Stretch's line got stretched BIG TIME!

I knew it was a decent fish... but I piddled around getting lines out of the water, searching for "The Grabbers" and getting situated for a big battle. When I looked back the fish was STILL taking line, showing no signs of stopping. It turned into a trolling motor chase for a while.

It was great fun... Stretch isn't a real emotional man, but I believe I saw him grin once or twice when this 50 lb. bruiser showed himself. Of course Ruger was jumping up and down in the boat like a little school girl.


We knocked off a few 5 - 10 lbers. after we got done high-five'n over this one. We'll be back at it at sunrise.

Life is good and gettin' better every day!

Fun without a doubt.

120 pounds of catfish in just a couple of hours. Not bad for a warm up for the real thing. \:D
