    Just thought Id post a report here on the cattin in TN. Seems to be heatin up a little with the August Temps. Got this 49 lber last Sunday in a new hole we found in 48 ft of water. Caught it on a big chunk of cut skipjack herring. He was a fighter for sure!

    VERY nice fish! Is he headed for lake Crisco, or did you release him?

    Wade thanks for sharing and congrats on a nice blue. Deep holes this time of year is the answer.

    Nice fish. I fish the face of rock dikes, behind rock dikes and deep holes and have yet to catch a trophy fish. My biggest was 28lbs. I am going to have to start getting serious about this stuff.:big_smile:
