    I hope y'all aint gettin' tired of hearing about the fishin' on the TN River and it's lakes yet, because here's another report for ya. Overall, it was another nice trip with some nice cats caught. The bite was slow for the first several hours, but it picked up and made up for it in the hours after sunset. Total catch for this trip was 12 cats and the biggest was a 47 lb. blue, a 5 point upgrade for my fish-off team. Water temps. have cooled to about 54 degrees here, a 20 degree drop since early Oct. when they were still in the mid 70's. All fish were caught on cutbait in 30 ft. or less of water. Here are a couple pics from my trip, 1 of the 47 lber and 1 of a blue so fat I just had to get a pic of it. From talkin' to Stumpjumper, he and She-Cat have a nice TN River report coming when they get back too. Good luck fishin'.

    Great fish David once again. I never get tired of hearing reports from my home waters. Especially when I can't find the time to go myself.:big_smile:

    Great fish David, you're the man on Upper Nick....I hope I can get up there and fish with you one day......little chilly for the night fishing, but it looks like it was the ticket.

    Bumper, nice trip report man. Tricia and I just got home. The rain and lack of current were a major factor. I think it's because she is once again beating me in the "PB game" :smile2:

    Thanks for the pictures.
