    Hit the TN River again today (12-19-07) and this time my brother went with me. He caught his new personal best, a 54 lb. blue. He also lost another good fish that pulled his leader loose from the swivel. We only caught 4 fish, but I'll sacrifice numbers for size when I'm releasing them anyway. I also put in a pic of a "little" 32 lber I caught today. I can't wait to go again (might leave him next time):big_smile:

    From the looks on your brothers face the fish were not the only thing that got hooked. That ear to ear grin tells the whole story. Glad you got to have a day on the water with your brother and you got into some nice size fish. :big_smile: Thanks for the pics.

    Congrats on the catches and to your bro's new PB. You fellers are brave to be out there on a cold night. I got off work @ 11:00 pm here in Mid. Tenn. and it was 38 when I left. It had to have been much colder on the river in East Tenn. I imagine yall stayed warm though hooking into hawgs like those!

    The other morning when I was out I only got one fish but it was at 52lbs. I would rather catch one nice one, then a bunch of small ones.

    We were using frozen bream, either big chunks or whole with the fins and tail cut off. It's just so much easier to use frozen bait in the winter and it works fine if its frozen fresh (still floppin' in the ziploc bag):big_smile:

    Just curious, what were the lengths of those fish.....that 54 looks pretty lengthy.
