    My wife and I hit the TN river to try to catch some Flatheads. We ended up catching everything BUT a Flathead! No complaints here though. I actually caught the Blue the night before on a solo trip. That's why the picture isn't the best. The Striper is my wife's personal best and was a big suprise for both of us! I also attached a picture of a really neat looking Channel that I caught. It had dark slate-colored spots on its head. In total we ended up catching around 14 Blues and 4 Channels. Almost everything was caught on live bait. All the fish were CPRed. Never did get a Flathead, but we sure did have a great trip!

    You did real good landing a solo 49 lb'er! Bet you were surprized when that striper surfaced.
