On Wed 5/13 Puddle Jumper and I put in at riverpark on the upper Nickajack lake and ran up to the dam. We got a tank full of bait and went searching for the fish. We FOUND EM!!! I caught blues that weighed 53(PB),52,30,29,20,15,14 and a couple of smaller ones. I also caught a 14 lb drum and a 16 lb drum plus an 8 lb flathead. Puddle Jumper caught several blues in the 5 to 15lb range, 40 or so bull bream with one 11 inch cracker and one 10 inch bream, his PB channel cat (on 4lb line and a wax worm), crappie, three or four drum up to 20 lbs. The bite was on fire. We used shad, skipjack, and wax worms. On this trip I used my brand new Puddle Jumper custom made blue cat catfish rod and it performed beautifully! Thanks PJ for the great rod. (eat ya heart out Pete) 5/14...OOOHHH what a difference a day makes. The bite was off and the shad was non existant but we did manage a couple of big drum, several blues in the 3 to 14 pound range, 15 or so bream, a couple of small flatheads and a couple of channel cats.
