Hi, I'm new to the Georgia forum and fairly new to the BOC. I'm thinking about moving to Georgia and was wondering where the best catfishing was in the state of Georgia? Anybody got any ideas?

Jason,

Welcome to the hood. There will be a GA gathering in June at the Altamaha State Park in the Jesup GA region. Everyone will be fishing the Altamaha River, the watershed that is responsible for 2 State catfish records.

Feel free to show up, will be a good time.

Jason,
Welcome to the BOC from Indiana. I'm sure you will find great fishing in Georgia. Just ask around and I'm sure someone from the area will steer you in the right direction just as the above members have done. Good luck, rspd507.

Welcome to the GA forum Jason. As already mentioned, the Altamaha and Coosa Rivers are 2 of GA's best places to catfish. If you come to extreme N. GA, there is some great catfishing just across the state line in the TN River near Chattanooga, TN.

Krowbar,
I moved down a couple of years ago from Charleston, SC. I fish the Altamaha and the Satilla now. I fished the Cooper all the time in Charleston and it is a tough choice. Totally different type of fishing. I catch alot fewer fish down here and work harder at it, but the fish are bigger Flatheads. We definately don't have that Blue cat population. I think Santee-Cooper and south east Ga are pretty close though in quality, just different.
