    We had a very cold but enjoyable day yesterday on the TN. river....The wind was not terrible, but it was blowing directly up river which makes for tricky anchor fishing.....we stayed tight to the bank to catch most of our fish in less than 15ft of water.....we landed 12 blues with a total of around 200 lbs....we had 5 little ones 4-10 lbs, 18,23,26,26,
    28,29, and 32 lbs.......never could connect with a true hog, but we did catch a New Species as a bonus a strange looking striped cat that weighed in at 26.8 lbs.

    All fish caught while anchor fishing with frozen skip-jack.....thanks to Team Catfish Tackle, Monster Rod Holders, and I will never leave home without my Anchor Drop-N-Stay....I used two of them one on the anchor and the duece for the drift sock out the back of the boat.

    I hope that you disposed of that striped cat:eek:oooh: as we would hate to let that invasive species go free in such good cat water.
