    Took a day off work yesterday (April 30) for a solo trip to the TN river. My wife had to sit this one out :sad2: I didn't break any records, but I sure had a great time! The generators were only running good from 5am-10am so I made sure I was on the water by 4:30. It was a cold morning and the dense fog made things a bit eerie...cue the barred owl! Within 10 minutes I had a fish on. I was set up for some solo photos, just in case I caught a jumbo. The timer on my camera was so fast that most pictures are of me bending over or wrestling a Blue :smile2: I did manage a few though. I ended up with six Blues by 10am and the biggest was 21#. I also lost a much larger fish.

    Afterwards, I trailered over to the Chickamauga dam to see if I could find some skipjacks. Caught a bunch of big ones and had a blast.

    What an awesome day off work!

    Another great report and pics Marc! :cool2: Its tough doing the solo photo deal with the timer :crazy:. I do it a lot but end up deleting more pics than I save. The fish seem to know just when to thrash and mess up the pic :smile2:! So you left the wife home so she wouldn't catch all the fish :wink:! Keep the reports coming :big_smile:!
