    Cuz Bill and me were suffering from cabin fever in a big way so we decided to go follow EricM around on Lake Chickamauga and pester his catfish a little today. We did a pretty fair job of sore mouthing them and managed to boat a few while dodging Eric's attempts to ram us off his hole. He kept mumbling something about that being his hole two weeks ago. :smile2:The tally for today was 48, 27, 23, 17, 15, 15, 15, and a dozen that weighed between 5 and 10 lbs. The wind was rough today. I hate fishing in a strong wind but it is still better than a day working. We used gizzard shad and skipjack for bait.

    Hey, I didn't try to ram you off off (my) fishin' hole - it was a full throttle gentle push, and it was only AFTER you caught my pet catfish Gertrude! Thanks for being gentle with her!:wink::smile2: See you out there again soon!
