    My wife and I hit the Tennessee River for an all night trip yesterday and had an awesome night of fishing.

    First off, this was my wife's first trip with her new (PINK) Catfish Safari rods that I got her for our anniversary. Secondly, I had just finished upgrading to Pro series Driftmasters that same day of the trip.

    Well, we caught some nice fish. We had our best double hook-up. First my rod was slammed by a 38# Blue. As I was fighting the fish Tricia's new pink pole starts peeling drag like crazy. We layed a 52# Blue next to my 38#er. Needless to say it was exciting and I think the fish will qualify Tricia for Catfish Safari's 50# free rod drawing!

    Anyway, we caught some more nice fish to end with ~250 lbs. (9 fish). All fish were caught on cutbait in 20 feet of water or less.

    Here are the weights: 13, 17, 13, 31, 52, 38, 21, 28, 41

    Tricia did not sleep a wink this night! We had a blast. Here are a few pictures of her putting me to shame, again!

    Marc, I am now a believer it's the Pink Rod man. I get looks when I wear my pink polo shirt too. Real good looks.
