Put in a long, hard day Saturday on Chickamauga Lake in Chattanooga, TN with Rick Dutton from Soddy Daisy and his sons, Corey and Ryan. They're troopers... this mid-winter catfish bite is tough. We missed four finicky fish in about 3 hours early and then relocated. First drift in the new location Rick tagged the fish that saved the day. 43 inches long, 42 pounds! It was the biggest fish of Rick's life, including saltwater. That sure took some pressure off the guide... who up until then had been crying the "blues" (pun intended). A little pressure remained however because Corey is from Montana and he wanted some Tennessee River catfish for dinner on New Year's Day... I guess they would go good with black-eyed peas [Smile] Obviously the 42 lber. went back in the water to fight again another day. They toughed it out long enough for Corey and Ryan to each tag fish in that 8-10 lb. class. ... so, as we said, they got two for the table and one for the wall (a picture and a Tennessee Angler Recognition Certificate anyway)!
