  • Getting chilly

    After exchanging a few messages here, then via text, @maverick and me (call me goose) got out on the hooch today. More trucks in the lot than I anticipated and my suspicions were confirmed. There were anglers all over, spin and fly. It's all good.

    We jumped in, still wet wading weather for me, mav got one on his first cast.

    Wasn't able to get a picture of the fish, but got an "in action"shot



    He was Euro/tight lining the heck outta the water. I was using a bobber/indicator, because I was too lazy to re rig from the trout hunter 18 outing.

    I wasn't planning on keeping any fish for the study today, but then I hooked a nice 14" brown, so I pulled out the stringer. All the other browns were small, kept a few rainbows too. They're bagged (literally) and tagged at this point, ready to be dissected



    Another great day on our awesome river with a new fishing bud.
    Tight lines!

        14" and larger browns are only caught on experience!

            Are you allowed to keep any size bow and brown in the hooch?

              Yup. No size limits on the hooch. Just a daily limit of 8 fish.
              Hi my name is Charles and I'm a fishaholic.

              Some days I'm the hook and some days I'm the fish.

                Yeah, no size limits across most of GA, but honestly I am not sure what one could do with those little 6-8 inchers: maybe frat party swallow them whole while still alive... chased by a few kegstands... but other than that #LetEmGoLetEmGrow

                    Wonder if you can use a small brown as bait for a big brown on a spinning rod?

                    But like you set let them go to grow bigger.

                      No.
                      You cannot trout fish with live fish anywhere in Georgia

                        You asking me?
                        We are doing a multi faceted trout study.
                        The bows are the control group
                        We are looking at growth, genetic drift based niche specialization, pathogens, diet by growth. Now that we've got fish we have about half dozen researchers on the project.

                          No reason you couldn’t do it on a fly rod either. Lots of people throw wigglers and wax worms
                          I like em big fat and sloppy.

                            I've had a big brown come out from under a fallen tree and chase a little brown - it was about the most exhilarating .25 seconds I've had in a stream.

                            But, I thought you couldn't use live fish to fish for trout in designated trout waters... I could be wrong.
