    We need to start thinking about where and when we will be having next years gathering. Seeing how much a pain in the a$$ to get one planned to everyones liking lets go ahead and start arguing on where to have it then we can move on to the dates, lol. Lets see I've been to 5 and they have been at Oconee twice, Altamaha twice and West Point once. Never had one on the Coosa river if anyone likes that idea. I guess we can start another poll when we get some locations, which I'm pretty sure will result in the same as always:beat_brick:.

    There's some good fishin' on the Coosa in the spring. Catfish (blues, channels, & flats), stripers, crappie, and white bass are all there in good numbers. The only bad thing about the Coosa in the spring is the crowds and boat traffic, especially on the weekends.

    What about High Falls? It would be a central location and it has big flatheads. Is there a good campground? Don't know about rules and regs.

    high falls is small and it has a 10 hp limit on motors i think that will discourage alot of people, also no boats at night. i would count that one out.

    Even with High Falls right here at home i would not want to have it there no night fishing and the 10 hp limit. I never been to the coosa sounds good to me !!!!! How about Jullett but its got a 25 hp limit on it !!!!! Oh and you got good flathead on Blackshear!!!!!!!!

    I enjoyed fishing the Coosa at the BCQ in Rome. I would not mind another shot at it!

    I was thinking blakshear also but theres a few weeks out of the year that the gnats will drive you nuts. Thats where I caught the 100# turtle that I posted a while back. I didn't catch a single cat though. Plenty of gar stealing the bait.

    The Coosas got my vote since I've never been there. Its a bit out of the way for about 90 percent of the state though.

    I live in in rome'ga I fish the coosa alot it is very good fishing there and some large fish I never come home empty handed and you want to fish it in the spring night time run is very good you don't have to worry about that much traffic. But the lock-n-dam is the only camp ground around here but there is a couple more ramps though and there is hole as deep as 60 ft. I would like to some of yall come up I like to meet yall because I can't do that much traveling.It be would be cool to have yall here. If yall need any info about it I sure be glad to try and help yall out

    You can run a big boat from the old lock and dam (where the campground is) downstream to AL if you want to. You can't go upriver from the lock and dam unless the river's really high.
