    Had a wonderful day today with Randy Johnson and his Dad from Englewood, TN. I'm sorry, the only name I remember for Dad is "Mr. Johnson." We loaded 'em up with about a 100 lbs. of eating-sized catfish for the freezer. Then we went looking for "big fish." The sun and "no breeze" was about to bake us off the water, that is until Randy got bit... and bit hard! Many heart-pounding minutes later we had a 47 lb. blue flopping in the bottom of the boat. After taking pictures (which ain't easy with fish that size)... and letting the adrenalin wear off, Randy and his Dad tagged a 20 lb. fish each. Add in one more 14 lb. squirt, and they released 4 fish that totaled 101 lbs. Not a bad day on the Tennessee River in the beautiful "Scenic City."
