    Lake Sydney Lanier is located in N.E. Ga. It has the possiblity of being a up and coming lake. I caught a 28lb flathead last Fri and have heard of a few blues in the 20's caught. It is the upper chain where the Chattahooche river begins. If you google Gainesville Ga Dawsonville Ga Buford Ga you will see the lake

    Caught a 4 or 5lb blue last night. I was talking to a friend of mine up in Hart county and he said he could remember his dad and some friends going to Lanier and running trotlines 40 years ago and getting 30lb blues

    I talked with Tim over at Hammonds today and these are some changes:

    The only way to sign up for the tournament will be to show up the morning of at Little Hall boat ramp.

    You will blast off in the order in which you paid.
    Ex: You pay first you will be the 1st one or in the 1st group to blast off
    You pay last you will be last to blast off or in the last group. Just like a Green Fish tournament
