    I made a trip to the TN River yesterday for a day and evening of fishin'. The current was a little slow, the wind a little breezy, it came a little shower, but I tried to make the best of it. I was hopin' to upgrade my fish-off entry but it didn't happen. I caught some nice fish though. I ended up catching 11 cats, with several over 30 lbs. and 1 nearly 40. Water temps are coolin' down and the water was 60-61 degrees. All fish were caught on cutbait in 30 ft. or less of water. The scenery is always nice there, but the fall color made it even better yesterday. I had a nice day on the water and I can't wait to do it again. Here are some pics for ya (I put a RC can in the fish pictures for a size reference):big_smile:.

    Bumper, thanks for the report. It is hard to beat the scenery! Eleven fish sounds like an awesome trip. I figured you'd have a 44#er :smile2:
