    Nick,

    Once you get 10 post I will send you a private mail. I am around Fort Stewart myself. Last I checked the river stage was at 14 feet, once it go's down, we will be in business :)

    Hey Nick, Welcome to the BOC and thank you for your service to our country. The river is really high right now. Depending on how much rain they get in north georgia over the next couple of weeks it should start falling soon. When it does it should be pretty good fishing.

    Good to have you a board! Thank you for service too.I fish on the west side of Ga on the hooch. Our water levels are up too. I have never caught a big cat, but I have reeled in some 8-12 pounders. Man they are so much fun. Once you get a good size cat, its like crack. You will be hooked forever!
