    This past Saturday I carried two of my grandaughters, Katie and Lexi, and Katie's friend from Church Liz on an afternoon cattin trip on Lake Chickamauga, Tn. We were only out on the water for about 2 hours but what a trip it was. Liz caught her PB fish of any kind. Liz went with us on our family camping / fishing trip to Harrison Bay State park near Chattanooga. It was a very peaceful and beautiful afternoon. The peace was
    shattered when Liz very calmy mentioned that she thinks she has a fish
    on. I turn around and her rod is bowed over in a deep arc down into the
    water with no sign of letting up. I knew she was not hung because the
    cat was dancing the rod with huge head shakes. I told her to get the
    rod out of the holder and fight it as I had instructed. She could not get it out of the holder so I got it out for her. I knew right away that she was into a good one as it was peeling line out. She struggled until she could hardly turn the reel handle. I keep telling her over and over to "PUMP IT UP and REEL DOWN". After several minutes it started coming up. Then it went right back down. A pontoon boat load of sightseers came slowly by, saw her struggle, stopped to watch and cheer her on. After several more minutes the 34lb hog of a catfish rolled up and there was OH MY LORD squeals from LIz and Katie that you could hear for a mile. Her cheering section stared clapping and
    congratulating her. They were taking pictures during the fight and then the
    weigh in. This REALLY made these kids a weekend they will never forget.
    Liz's biggest fish before this had been a small bream. IN the first picture Lexie is on left, Liz in middle and Katie on the right. The second picture is of me and Lexie with a cat that she caught.
