Charlie Wrenn from Columbia, TN brought his son, Chase, over to fish with me today. Chase is a philosophy professor at the University of Alabama... so there was definitely some "deep thinking" going on today.

Weather was cloudy but very nic at daylight... and launching boat I could see big numbers of stripe and/or bass busting like CRAZY up by the Dam. I rigged a couple of rods and we headed that way... and of course the fish went down... and didn't come back (at least while we were lookin'). So we switched quickly back to cats.

Around 8:30 or 9 somebody turned on the faucet. Glad my bilge pump was working. But we persevered, with a little help hiding for a while under CB Robinson Bridge. Today was pretty much a repeat of Saturday. We caught fish but it wasn't hot & heavy. A fish here, a fish there... a double here, and then another double there... well-spaced out throughout the day. And in no particular spot... spent most of our time however drifting the channel between barge tie-offs and CB Robinson. Caught fish from 8 feet, down to 20 feet... of course all on chicken breast.

The Wrenn's only wanted to keep a handful to take home and eat, so we didn't count total catch, We guessed 25 to 30 total. No stringer pics today, but it would have looked much like yesterday's. Biggest fish in the boat today were a couple right at 10 pounds... however Chase had a bigger fish. He fought it a long time (on light tackle) until suddenly the fish zigged when Chase zagged, and they parted ways. I'd say it was in 15-20 lb. range. But the big fish have been few and far between this weekend.

No matter... I had a wonderful day, with every variety of weather, with a father-son team that have a great philosophy on life... and that mean's my life is good and gettin' better every day!

I'm thrilled to add my name to list of happy customers of Richard Simms. My son and I had an absolutely fantastic time fishing yesterday. No, we didn't tag any giant fish, but we got decent numbers, the action was steady, and the fish were certainly big enough to be exciting.

On the way home we talked about how much fun we had and how Richard really makes it a quality adventure. He knows what he's doing and has an instructional manner that is, well, to use an overused term, awesome. I just can't think of better way to describe it.

If I sound as if I'm still giddy and excited, it's because I am! Can't wait to do it again.
