    Just got in from Tennessee. Dad and I had a great time together, and caught a few fish to boot. We caught 18 large mouth, the largest just over 5 lbs, 2 small mouth, 2 lbs each, 1 stripper about 12 lbs, and 3 hybrids around 4 - 5 lbs each. They were hitting good this morning, but the weather ran us in early. Dad made it till about 12:30 yesterday, then got tired. The large mouth were in the grass, about 1 - 2 feet deep, full of eggs and their tails were raw from fanning the beds, getting ready to lay. I went up the lake today to get in the rocks for the smallies, but the weather turned bad and we only got the 2. Guys, spending time with dad and then catching fish to boot made for a great time. I hope to do it many more times with him, but if not I have a lifetime of great memories.

    Dad has always loved the water. We trout fished, walleye fished and bass fished when I was coming up. Dad loved to water ski when I was about 6 years old. He and I would go to Lake James every week. He said I was to young to ski, so I drove the boat and pulled him all day long. I never did make much of a skier, but I can drive the heck out of a boat!

    God Bless All,
    Steve

    There is nothing like the times we have with Dad. I am so glad for you that you got this time and hope that you have many more trips with him. Catching fish is always nice but, time with your Dad is non replaceable!
    Glad you guys had a great trip!
