    Well I will be in GA soon and fishing the Hooch which kind of makes me an Alabama river fisherman. Anyone got any recommendations.

    ETHANOL, very difficult to avoid and not particularly good for outboards does squirrely things to the gaskets and floats in older motors and apparently according to the fella who is rebuilding a 225 vindicator for my buddy has been causing all kind of issues with stopped up carbs, which in turn causes a lean condition that turns pistons into paperweights. I'm not sure about anyone else but I have chased water probs in fuel all year. and my boat is stored in a 30x50 polebarn that is totally enclosed. what did seem to help is adding Stabil brand fuel treatment everytime I put in fuel. And I use my boat probably 3-5 times a month so I don't think the fuel was getting stale. I have been catching quite a few cats on the Tn river and hopefully will get back up there in a few days.

    Spent a week there last week and the weather was bad. Caught a few arond twnety in the tailrace behind the first power pole in the slack water. Snagged a lot because I couldnt keep the boat stable due to the 500 mil an hour winds and snow and sleet and rain and... Cant think of any more to bitch about. Shad were everywhere below the powerhouse; all sizes.

    we caught a 17lb blue at holt lake on the warrior river sat. night(12/26) and two small channels jug fishing... are there any suggestions where to fish for the real big blues when there is a 70ft deep by 400 foot wide channel and a lot of 20-30 foot deep slews holding bait fish.. the slews are not producing anything but small channel cats,we just got lucky on the blue i guess..thanks for any info.
