    Went home at lunch and hooked up the boat, pulled it back to work and now I'm waiting on 3:30. Gonna hit the Tenn River. Keep looking at the TVA site and so far they aren't generating any water which is a BAD thing. Supposed to be running 2 or more units after 1:00 pm. They better hurry. I'll report back on what we catch. Area I'm fishing I've caught blues, channels and flats, so I never know what's tugging on the end of the line.

    Whooooo hooooo! now the currents running at over 48,000 cubic feet per second. That kind of flow makes for a good days fishing.

    There you are...ready to take care of business and you have to wait on some dumb ol clock!! You know the fish are starving. They will probably eat some leaves or twigs or worse because you have to wait till 3:30 before you can give them the real food. Sure add the idiots don't have the turbins running, confusing the bite. We really do call this fun?

    Well it was a little disapointing. We got down there at 4:00 pm with good water flow. I managed 2 blues (2 and 4 pounds) on frozen skipjack. A couple of other hits but I think they were gar. Fished hard along a 2 mile stretch of bluffs and trees with no other hits. The water shut off abruptly at 7:30. We went home. Not what I was hoping for but hey - I went fishing!:big_smile:
