Default Clinch july 8 2013

I worked Friday while most of my co-workers took the 4th holiday, I took my day yesterday. I visted a relative over the weekend in Louisville Ky, and blasted out Monday morning at 8:30 (this schedule not recomended for most drivers) . Traffic was light and no stops till Norris exit. I saw the release schedule Sunday night and knew it was gonna rock or be a bust. It rocked for me with grand slam in first session from 12:00 till 2:30, than they released for one hour which gave me a break and a chance for two Git' Go's hot dogs, the breakfast of champions and Clinch fisherman who give no thought to dietary concerns! The water started pulling down about 4:30 and to say it was on was an understatement, rises were like popcon and I hit another slam until I crawled out at 6:45. If you look in last few pictures you can see the mist in the evening post-water release and at times you could not see where your line landed it was that thick at times. I never thought I would say I am tired of catching brooks and would like to see more bows but that was the way it was. Throw in a couple of browns and a couple of bows and I had a double digit day in about 4 hours combined fishing. I took what pictures I could but reality was the hits were fast and little break in between and if your like me I would rather fish than photograph any day!
