  • River south of Morgan Falls

    Stopped off at the river to grab lunch after an interview and I just happened to have a rod with me. Literally the third cast the line went tight. Nice bucket mouth trout. Guessing around 4 lbs.

    Not five minutes later another blow up and this one had much much bigger shoulders. This fish immediately decided to head for West Point and I couldnít turn it. Fishing from the bank I was SOL. Snap... oh well

    My friends fishing with cut bait started cussing in Spanish as they had been out there a few hours without a bite. One of them reeled in his bait cut it off and put on a buck tail to match the hatch. Bait had obviously been washed thru Morgan Falls as I watched them float by.

    Didnít have much time, but it was a nice way to kill 30-40 minutes and to suck down a quick bite.

    Very nice. Those 30-40 minute surgical strike missions are so satisfying when they come together!

    Those ones you canít turn around are the best, and worst feeling.
    I like em big fat and sloppy.

          I was thinking alligator or a gar. May have to sneak out with the kayak. My time on the river down here has been limited this summer.

                    I think the sturgeon stocking is limited to the rivers in the coosa and Tennessee watersheds.

                          A little known part of the USA - China trade agreement was a side deal with Mongolia that involved the importation of taimen into a few quietly selected waterways of the USA. The middle Chattahoochee was selected as the fish cannot tolerate the warmer temperature south of the metro area and cannot travel upstream past the dam. It was felt the taimen which grow as large as stripers should be able to hold their own against the invaders from the south. Obviously, our friend hooked one of the imports. At least, that's a rumor.

                            Hoping to hook into a F1 Triploid Striped Sturgelunge

                            Going out below MFD this afternoon and hoping to get towed around by one of these horrors. (Will post a report if I make it out alive)

                              How late do the stripers hang out below the dam? I want to give it a shot but Iím not sure when they head back to west point
