    Had an outstanding day below Chickamauga Dam with Henry Lehman and his son, Austin from Dickson, TN. Lots of big blues... lost count how many but they went home with the cooler overflowing. Of course we released all the big fish (over 10#). Austin's big fish pulled the scales to 28 lbs. He beat Dad who topped out with a pair of 18 lber's. Cut bait was the ticket.... bluegill to be more exact.
