    I went early today had to be home by 12:00pm. Tennessee river, Skull Island area, limited on shellcrackers while fishing for cats. Caught 2 blue cats 12lb and 35lb , used fresh cutbait-bluegills. No bites on frozen skipjack. Pretty morning on water. Both were released alive !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sounds like good time, thanks for lettin em go. Not enough people do that when they catch a nice fish. Last time I was out and I caught a 66lber and everyone was asking why I let it go. It just goes to show that people don't understand that a fish like that will produce a lot more and it would have tasted like crap anyways. Good fishing to ya

    Sounds like a good day on the water. Gotta love you catch and release guys. I've been yelled at for releasing nice fish here locally, mostly by the army of non-legal citizens that are raping my local waterway of it's fish. :crazy:
