    Went out fishing on Percy Priest tonight. Trying for some eating sized channels. I got one good sized fish. It fought like a good sized cat, but when i got it up to the edge of the boat, it was a pretty good sized gar. Wasn't too happy to cut my line, but i sure wasn't reaching into that mouth. lol. Anyways, on the way back to the ramp, my depth finder went from 27, to 18, to 10, to 4 in quick succession, so i throttled down to make sure i didn't hit bottom. when i did, i heard splashes beside me, so I looked over with the spotlight, and saw 60+ shiners swimming dolphin style beside my boat. I checked around to make sure i was going the right way, and just happened to look over and saw a 30+ lb blue take a shiner right by the boat. It was one of the most awesome things i've seen in a long time. Plus, i found a new place to go fishing for cats.:smile2:
