I've done several guide trips as birthday presents, but I believe today might have been my first "Anniversary Present" trip. Chris Wolkonowski (TNDeer's "Quailman") says, "My friends are jealous of me because I've got a wife who likes to fish."

So what better gift could Quailman get Mrs. Quailman for their 12th anniversary but a beautiful August day chasing big blue cats on the Tennessee River (with me ).

What neat people. They call Greutli-Lager home (in Grundy County). They spend most of their fishing days on Tims Ford, but today got a pretty good dose of the Tennessee River. Most fish came drifting the traditional chicken breast in the river channel in 10 - 18 feet of water. Odd however because you'll find fish bunched in a particular stretch of river, and not others, even though there is no real discernible difference in structure.

Cats were pretty cooperative. We big caught a cooler full of eaters for them to take home, with a few real bragging-sized fish. And like yesterday, "Girls Rule" because Urla had the big fish of the day!

All caught on light tackle which provides "extra fun." I thought Urla was going to bite a hole in her lip when the big fish of the day took her for a ride.

Happy Anniversary! Life is good and gettin' better every day!

Had a great time Richard! Urla talked about it all afternoon, and of course we had to go by her parents house to show off the catch.

She was still upset at me for letting the big one go back, but hopefully she'll forgive me one day. ;\)

Thanks again!
