    I talked to a fishing buddy of mine Sun. night 8-23-09 and he said he had caught 17 from 2-10lb. on Chickamauga. Naturally we had to go again this morning to catch that big one he had let get away. So at 6:30 am we were putting the boat in at Blyth Ferry. We fish until about 12:30 and only caught 3 fish. The pic is the biggest one we got. And yeah, I caught it. We got several bites, but the fish were just pecking at it like bluegill or something do. It was a nice day on the water anyway though.

    Good report, gruffy. I haven't fished Chicamaugua since the 1970's, and that was in the Harrison Bay area. Well, below Watts Bar Dam is technically Chicamagua, and TVA and TWRA won't let bank fishermen in there anymore.

    John good luck to you and Alan. I didn't go this morning as this night shift thing is killing me. I will be back on my regular shift after Thursday ao I can get back to some good fishing. I look for you and Alan and Cheez whenever I'm up at the nuke. I even look for old gruffy. LOL
