    I had one of my best days Sunday morning. My buddy and I fished from 7am to 10:30am and ended up with 12 cats landed with the smallest at 15lbs and the largest at 42. We caught these fish on a channel ledge that drops from 20ft down into 45ft of water using fresh cut skipjack. I lost count of the fish that we missed or pulled off but it was a lot. I hope their biting that good tommorow!

    Thanks everyone, it was a lot of fun.
    Wolfman, I wish we could have gotten into them that good up on WattsBar. Jim, I was missing that hat around 10:00 that day, it got HOT!

    And yes, all these fish were released. I was fishing in a catch and release tournament, I took 1st place and my buddy got 2nd.
