Re: Scamp Grouper--Fish I Have Yet to Catch

Have always found them in over 100’ and as deep as 300’. Found a limit of gags in state waters Monday. While they coexist to some degree, scamps are deeper.

Re: Juan sighting on Hoochie The Other Day!

Nice! My parents just moved to CSB, bought a 17’KW and my dad is reminiscent of his days fly fishing for bream in the locks around Lake O (and occasionally hanging big bass). The Hootch seems like a decent option.

Re: Huge Disappointment

Big trout have vicious head shakes, but usually only good for one run if you don’t put a ton of pressure on them. Xtra fast rod and loose. The drag. Let them wallow.

Re: NFGFC August Tournament: Rock Landing

Pretty much all the details are in the “NFGFC” section of this forum. Questions welcome at the Capt’s meeting. Michael Aman is pretty active on the FB page and will answer questions there. I’m happy to answer questions here. What kind of details are you looking for? 5 trout. Side pots for big trout ...

Re: 2021 Scallops

RB-do you keep them in saltwater? Livewell? If so, why? I’ve always just emptied them into a cooler of ice, but you seem well versed in sea food treatment.

Re: ST George Island--places to eat

IP is a good recommendation. For a quality seafood meal the Owl in Appalach can’t be beat. I’ve never been, but my parents just had some beers and listened to live music at Paddy’s on the island. They had a good time. Up The Creek and Scorpio Marina in Appalach are both good too. Have fun.

Re: Blue Ridge Guide

Thanks for all the suggestions. Thinking about staying closer to BlueRidge. Anyone fish the Noontootla or Toccoa?

Looking at an outfit like this

Blue Ridge Guide

Bought 6 days in Blue Ridge at the CCA banquet. Looking for a guide recommendation. Open to float trip or wading. I’ve done independent trips in N GA before with decent success. Not looking to do that as the house sleeps 12, and we’ll have a bunch of family visiting. Just looking for a day of escape...

Re: Fishing thru floating grass

Several options:
Throw top water and although frustrating look for a hit in you first couple twitches…then keep splashing with grass attached. Don’t think it won’t still get hit.
Throw weedless jerk bait.
Head to a creek or a flat protected from the wind where grass can’t form lines

Re: BOTTOM MACINE QUIT WORKING

Run a pretty large Hummingbird on my Ranger. Love the graphing and side imaging in those depths. Better than the Lowrance HDS I had previously. Can’t speak to the unit you reference. Let us know what you decide.
