    I saw online today at wsb Channel 2 news Atlanta http://www.wsbtv.com/sports/19616185/detail.html

    A man named Jerry Smith from Woodstock caught a 50 pound catfish in the Little River. I was wondering if this guy is a BOC memeber. Does anyone know Jerry. :smile2:

    It's hard to tell exactly what it is. A channel? At any rate, it would have been a lake recordat 50 lb. I agree with Brad that the 50 lb. estimate may be generous.

    Looking at the color I think flathead maybee..Nice fish and kills the lake record...
