    Blazerjet and I went down to the Gallatin Steamplant and ended up with a total of 416 skipjack. I arrived on friday morning and blazerjet already had his livewell full of them. Catfishing was not the greatest but we still managed to catch a few small channels. I ended up catching two stripers in the boils on saturday morning a 4 pounder and a 7 pounder. We went to Old hickory dam and had no luck. Hopefully we'll make it back down their soon. We fished every deep hole, ledge, flats, and barges.We just couldn't find the big cats. I know their there maybe the extreme cold and wind turned them off. O well least we have 416 vacumed packed skippies. IRONCAT
