Update on Chickamauga blues: went today, used fresh cut bait. Caught 1 20+, one 3 lb, and 10 in the 10 lb range. Fishing is difficult, the cats are again holding very tightly to the deep shad balls and tend to suspend 10 or 12 feet off of the bottom. Slowly dropping the bait through them and bouncing it on the bottom triggers some strikes, but they are VERY light hits and you often just get a little extra weight on the line as an indication of a fish. Most of my regular areas are getting no action at all. Very few fishermen, and I only saw 3 other fish caught. If this info is useful, I'll be glad to continue to let you know what I'm finding. Just let me know! Good fishing!
