    Default Very short WB tailwater 110819

    I thought that I had until 9 am to fish this morning, but it turned out to be just a little over and hour and a half.

    First drift just before 7am, I hooked and landed a Striper. By the time that we took pics and ran back up to the dam, TVA had increased the flow from 15,000 to over 30,000 cfs.

    We only caught one more Striper, a channel catfish and a nice White bass. I had a call from my son in law telling me that they were already in Vicksburg, Mississippi on the way to Bessemer, Alabama where we were to meet them for lunch and pick up my granddaughter who is going to visit with us for a few days. Probably until mid December. We are excited about that. But it cut our trip short.

    It was cold with the north wind well over 15 mph and a 30 degree air temp. 63.4 water temp and lots of current.

    I'm shivering just thinking about 15 mph winds and temps in the 30"s that's wind chill of 25...
