It was a "Grabblin' Party" on Watts Bar Sundays afternoon. My daughter rounded up two boat loads of her friends who had always marveled at her "Girls Gone Grabblin'" exploits, and off we all went with Marty & Fostana Jenkins. The boys (or young men) had a blast. Marty's video is going to be a hoot... even the parts he's going to have to "Bleep!"

Bottomline... the guys wrestled with 7 or 8 blues and flatheads. A couple made good their escape before posing for a picture however.

Below is one awesome sequence however of the big fish of the day. They got a 44-pound flathead to the surface that went absolutely bonkers. As official photographer, I was right on top of them with the motor drive hammerin' away. A pretty cool sequence of all of 'em divin' in and surrounding the beast, and amazingly they prevented his escape... at least until they wanted him to escape. It plays in a 24-frame loop... plus a few more misc. pics and escape sequences below.

Life is good and gettin' better every day!

You know, Richard, for some reason, that just does not appeal to me. I have stuck my hands in lots of places they should not have been---a bull rope comes to mind, but I have no desire to stick my hand in a catperch's mouth hole.

But I would like to see the video.

I would like to get back out there myself, its been several years since I have been. Watts bar was where we always went as well, nothing like it, definitely ups the pucker factor when you "find" one!!!

How much beer is required for one to do such a thing? Seems like catching rattlesnakes would be safer.

The truly profound question and observation! At least you can see the rattlesnake before you have to get "up close and personal". lol

When catfish get big, their sharp fins get dull. Like puppy dog teth... when they're little, they're sharp as tacks. But as they get older, teeth (or fins) get worn down and dull. Other than gettin' bit, big ones are much safer then litle ones.

As for where we were... launched out of Euchee Marina.. went downstream and upstream. I'm rarely on Watts Bar so I was lost most of the time.

two questions: How you get those pictures to sequence like that and does your daughter keep her sunglasses on?

What kind of place/banks and how deep do you usually find them? It looks pretty cool, but I am not real sure if I would be brave enough to do it.

Sequence is called an "amimated gif." In Photoshop, place multiple photos on top of each other in layers and save as "animated gif."

Yes, on sunglasses. Too muddy to see underwater anyway....
