Last year I spent a week camping and catfishing on the Tennessee River over the Thanksgiving holiday. It was an amazing and memorable time; in fact, we all caught our PB Blues during that week. My wife and I decided to try it again this year. We had a phenomenal trip! Our campsite was on a beautiful and secluded point directly on the water. We used our boat to shuttle supplies and camping gear to the site. The view from our tent was incredible. We enjoyed the sounds of barred owls and coyotes, as well as the occasional barge during most nights. Overall, the weather was not bad. We had a couple rainy days that soaked everything and most mornings and nights were a chilly 20-30 degrees, especially on the water. Most mornings I was up before sunrise to prepare the boat and to ensure enough time to coax my wife out of her warm sleeping bad. We usually fished until 12-1 pm and then came in for our late breakfast. If we were lucky we could sit in the 50-degree sun for a while before heading back out for the night. Let me tell about the fishing! The trip started with Tricia landing her new PB on the first night! A stout, 58 pound Blue that gave my wife one heck of a battle. This was a huge upgrade for her team in the BOC fish-off as well. But, foremost, she reclaimed her lead in our PB competition. :smile2: Overall, we caught many nice fish through the week. The big five were 58, 53, 47, 42 and 40. We had several in the 30s. Our smallest fish was an 8-pound Blue that became part of our Thanksgiving meal back at the campsite. The rest of the fish were released as usual. I have quite a few pictures that I would like to share. I feel very fortunate to have Tricia as my wife and number one fishing partner.
