Catfishing is hot in the Scenic City right now.

I was supposed to fish with Gary Allen last Friday, but raging storms changed our mind. Today was MUCH better.

We hammered 'em good in the Chickamauga Dam Tailwaters this morning.... a bunch on light tackle. I LOVE that! Our "kicker" fish today was 35 pounds (with some serious curvature of the spine). But we caught great numbers of fish from 5 to 15 pounds. I know at least 150 lbs. came in the boat today... maybe 200?

It's all a matter of catching the water running just right, and presenting a chunk of chicken just the right way. Everything was released to grow bigger and meaner, which means life is good and gettin' better everyday.

Read my book, "An Outdoor State of Mind"
"The outdoors is not just a place, it's a state of mind."
