    Wow, we had one heck of a trip on the TN River! Not only did we both catch new PBs, we also had an amazing double hook-up...72 and 55 pounders!

    Our first day on the river Tricia hooked her new PB, a 67 pound Blue. She hooked the fish in 60 feet of water on cutbait. The fish was shorter than mine, but fat and thick! It put up a great fight.

    Later that night Tricia hooked a 55 pounder. Just as we were taking pictures, another rod was slammed hard! I knew the fish would be a new PB for me... it was heavy! When we got it into the boat it made the 55 look comparatively small. It was a day we will not soon forget.

    Overall, our next day was slow. We caught a number of cats ranging from 12-22 pounds, but nothing like the previous day.

    It was a great way to bring in the new year! A few pictures...
