    I am going to visit family in Lawrenceville, GA in late January and I was wondering if there are any good lakes to pursue catfish in that area?

    In years past I have fished for stripers on Lanier, but with the projected record low levels I doubt I will be able to find an open boat ramp. :sad2:

    Any suggestions on nearby lakes, up to an hours drive, would be appreciated. :wink:

    Hey Wylie, I know of Twin Bridges Lake in that area that is pretty good for big catfish, unfortunately it is a pay lake but it is loaded with some big blues. Hope that helps.
