    Had a real blast Saturday. I just absolutely love watching youngsters catch fish, and get REALLY excited about it. :big_smile:
    Bo Ellis and his son Kevin came up from Chatsworth, Ga. to fish the Tennessee River with me today (Chickamauga Lake). I'm not catching a lot of size right now, but we sure are catching big numbers. We played with the bass a while at daylight, but they were just marginally cooperative. Switched to catfish and I think we had a triple on the first drop, plus several more throughout the day. I went through LOTS of chicken breast, which is fine with me when it's because we're catching fish. Kevin was smokin' Dad for a while and said, "This is the first time I've ever caught more than you Dad. I believe there's a new Sheriff in town." I loved it. :smile2: The fish seemed to be bunched in various spots today... but we found them anywhere from 36 feet down to 60 feet. Bo had hold of one horse that was ripping drag and had him hanging on for dear life. Sadly, he just came unbuttoned after about 10 or 15 seconds. Sometimes the big ones really do get away. :embarassed: Life is good and gettin' better every day!
