    Hey everyone, new to the board and just wanted to drop a line!
    I have spent the past week fishing sites up and down the "hootch" from south atlanta to whitesburg, and I must say the catfishing is great.
    Just found out after 16 years of being married my wife loves to fish (gets her out of the house)
    So we spend lots of time with our youngest son catfishin'
    And yes we practice catch and release there, but lots of photos. We got 'em
    from 4" to 30" night and day on nightcrawlers, but looking forward to trying out some other stratagies.
    Dallas

    Thanks for the welcomes, will post up some pictures tonight got to resize
    they come out huge off the camera.

    Philly, as far south I have been is whitesburg, ga but Franklin, Ga just north of West Point is understood to be good up highway 27 runs right to the "hootch" and the boat dock is right there.

    Trying to get up there to West Point, but too busy with my son's b-day party.:smile2: Hope the drought isn't affecting the fishing. Gonna try to come up before I head back up North.:0a23:

    Fished the Hooch in Columbus last night, the kids caught a couple of channels,but no bigguns.The bugs kinda chased me away. :smile2: Next time I'm down I'll be sure to fish West Point lake.:0a23:
