    They are not hitting here around Chattanooga very well right now. All this bad weather must have locked their jaws. Hopefully they will fire up soon.

    A week ago Saturday the sauger Tournament there was a lot of boats that did not catch a fish. And 12 lbs won it.
    They have lock jaw.
    But we need to get out and give them a try. That or go crappie fishing. Marilyn and I caught 25 in about an hour Saturday in the light wind that day. LOL
    Also the big blues are bitting, And there catching skipjack at the dam.

    The storms did not hit us. but got a few trees on HWY 224. And lots of stuff south of us.
    If the Twister had moved a degree or so. It could have hit us or Roger. but moved North east.

    Ricky thanks for the report. I sure would love to catch a mess of them.

    Pete glad to hear you and Roger made out OK. I called him after it passed over us, on its way toward morris chapel. We took a lot of hail damage but nothing compared to the folk across the river. Had to work Sat. but plan on making the boat show sunday afternoon. take care.
