Ok, maybe I'm all wet here but here's my story. I went out on Allatoona about 2:00 AM Monday. I went up to the Knox bridge on the Ettewa and anchored on the 90 degree bend on the lake side of the bridge. There's a good twenty foot deep hole right along the shoreline. Seemed like a good spot. After I got my rods baited up and set I thought I might just goof off and I threw out three jugs with shrimp on them. Actually they were 20 ounce drink bottles. Well, the night was a complete bust. I had two live bream, shrimp and nightcrawlers out. Not a bite on anything. Around 9:00 AM I gave up and stowed my gear. I then began to search for my jugs. Now, I am not a jug fisherman. I don't keep anythintg I catch. I just like to do this to see what may be in the area AND where they might go afterwards. Well, the first two were a couple hundred yards down stream (towards the lake). The shrimp were gone. Good sign. The third was almost to the next big bend, down around the dredging barge. It was bobbing and swimming. It took almost 20 minutes of chasing and it was taken under several times and I had to wait for it to surface. Here's the hard to believe part. It was a seven LB blue cat. I have fished Allatoona for 12 years now and this is the first blue I have seen from it. Maybe you guys can fill me in. Is this the oddity I think it is or are blues not that uncommon in Allatoona? It wasn't too long ago that you didn't hear much about flatties in Allatoona and now they seem to more common. Is someone on their own stocking program? Any thoughts on the blues?
