Tn River On Sunday....

Recommended Posts

Drifting down the TN river on Sunday there were a LOT of fish caught.

A LOT of drum, carp, catfish, white bass, and a few striped bass, and one sauger.

Between the 2 of us we caught 8 smallies though and one LM. We keyed in on an area that Kent and I had "found" 2 weeks ago, and I am thinking that Kent caught alot of his fish there the previous 2 days. Might have been the reason for our lower Bass numbers but what I can say is the trash fish were HUGE!!!

We caught 4 drum/carp OVER 10 lbs, 1 Catfish over 10 lbs and a couple in the 5-6 lb range.

Our smallies were all in the 2-3.5 lb range so it was good to catch a decent size and they fight great! The one large mouth was a little buck bass.

Sauger came just 1/4" under the size limit to keep and eat! Oh well, great day on the river, and hopefully still some to come!

Here is the AVERAGE size carp/drum we were catching! The biggest had to be run down, as it made a surge for the middle and we had to get on the trolling motor and chase it for 300 yrds or so! LOL

Sounds like fun to me!

Some call 'em trash fish - but they still give you a fight...often more than a LMB... ;)
