    hey all...newbie here..

    from Georgia..

    just wanted to post somethings..

    so no one has really caught anything from lakes or rivers from Ga?

    Well Ill put it this way...

    I hook up 3 poles..

    2 for cat...1 for bassin'

    theres a hot spot down in Lake Seminole...about 80 miles from Albany...and of course there is Lake Blackshear ive caught plenty..

    but the worst ive seen of fishing is in Lake Worth/ Lake Chehaw...boy that place is HARDDDDDDDD....the fish dont like anything you try to trow at them..

    :sad:

    :cursing:

    anywhoo.... we set up a couple BushHooks/LimbLines...just to try out.. .see if any luck this past weekend...well we caught 2 -- 3lbers Channel Kitties on them..

    Which was pretty cool!!

    finally caught something

    anywhoo...hope all enjoys..

    Welcome! Try fishing in the Chattahoochee and ocmulgee. Two great rivers.And listen, there is no time limit for fishing, execpt in those big money tourneys that they pay millions of dollars just to catch a fish!

    I've done my research and from what i researched flathead catfish are in lake Allatoona.Why is it that ever time i here someone from around the way is catching catfish but not the flathead ones. Has anybody caught any flatheads in Allatoona and at what part of the lake did you catch them at?

    thanks

    no offense man but those two rivers run through the most densely populated regions of georgia, if you fish those two rivers,maintain a strict catch and release program unless you like that third eye growing out the back of your head

    i currently live over here in gwinnett county and have been fishing at this catfish lake called Twin bridges either youve heard of it or not its great for big and small catfish, two weekends ago i caught a 31 and a 42 pound flat within a hour. biggest one caught was a 97 pound flat, if you live close to this place try it out.

    when u enter there will be bridge on the left, when you cross it there will be a grassy point in the middle and it is a real good spot and you dont have to throw out very far,next to it will be another bridge that you can cross and there will be another point which is a hot spot to. these two have the best luck for me, couple months ago my cousin caught a 73 lb flat using a bream head. Bull heads, Whole bream, and Bream heads are very good there. Hope that helps.

    i have heard that point is a hot spot.....next time i go I will make the walk. I know it's not far but when you can just pull up to the other spots they are hard to pass up....I caught that blue on the bank directly opposite from the first point you are talking about.......hey eagle claw maybe we could hook up and fish sometime....i live about 5 miles away from the place......

    Twin bridges lake is not kept up well, they need salt blocks and need to fix the dam, i catch flats and blues all the time and they are beaten up most the time, that might be why the fight sucks for you. You say you fish at lake lanier? I have heard it is really hard to catch there but the size of the catfish or HUGE, Do you catch many?

    My cousin and I went to Twin Bridges for the first and and only time last earlier this month. We didn't catch a dang thing, I was highly disappointed in the place. I mean we payed 9.00 didn't catch anything but bream to use for bait. I also didn't like the old mans attitude, when I asked him questions about the place. I asked him where a good spot would be, he was like where ever you drop your hook in the water, well, if its that good of a place then we should have caught a bunch. I would agree, the place is poorly managed. I just don't see my self goin back to that palce ever again.

    Yeah, I fish Lanier nearly every night. I catch the heck out of the channels. I don't get the monsters but we usually catch 20 or so four - six ponders. I have been experimanting with the big ones with no luck so far. Let me know if you want to go sometime. I always need a partner.

    My son caught a 4 1/2 pounder 07/06/2006 under the Little River bridge.
    Caught on a bream head. Largest catch this year was 6 pound blue cat.
    Best fishing Monday - Friday since there is a boat launch about 300 yards away and 95% don't pay any attention to "IDLE SPEED/NO WAKE" signs.
    Where is the DNR when you need'em..
