Yesterday afternoon (6-24-09), I headed back up to the TN River, this time with my 2 boys Austin & Logan. Austin's 6 now and Logan turned 2 last month. The trip was special from the start, as this was Logan's first fishin' trip to the TN River with Daddy and Bubba (Austin). The fishin' was good to begin with, as we put lots of bream in the boat (which I would put to good use later :wink. After a couple hours of that, and eatin', and gettin' lots of practice sayin' "stop", "quit", "no", and "don't" :smile2:, and even changin' a diaper :cool2:, We made the attempt at some catfishin'. We only caught 2 cats, but one was big. Right about dark I heard some drag buzzin', and saw my outside pole warped over. After a good fight, Austin helped me net the fish and it turned out to be a 58 lb. blue. After some pics and the release, we called it a day. It would have been a great trip if we hadn't caught anything, but the big blue really was the icing on the cake. I don't take fishin' too seriously when kids are with me, but I think my boys might be my good luck charms. We had a great time and I'll never forget it :big_smile:. Here are a couple pics for ya.
