Thanks Jon! I have already gotten some pretty good advice. Now just got to get that yak and start putting it all too use. If this crazy weather will cooperate hopefully we can get a trip in soon!

I am new here and just wanted to introduce myself. River fishing south of the mountains is new to me. I have spent my life chasing reds, sea trout, and largemouth just to name a few. I love to fish but the cost of gas is driving me to more economical power that doesn't come from Saudi. Maybe Chic Fil A but not saudi. Look forward to meeting you guys and learning. :D

Tell you what, Celticfisherman, It doesnt get much more economical than paddling yourself down the river! Its quiet too which is a plus in my book. Hopefully this price of gas will get all sorted out soon.

We may all have to get a bus and start making group trips just to split the cost of gas!

Hi. I'm new to the site, but I've been scouring over it for a couple of days now. I became hooked on fly-fishing about 6 or 7 years ago, and have primarlily gone after trout in the chattahoochee and mountain streams of north georgia. As fun as that is, any good trout waters in Georgia get relentless pressure. My favorite way to fish is in my WS tarpon 120. You can imagine finding all these great floatable rivers nearby, and finding you've got the perfect boat to float them in is a great feeling!

Hi,

I’m new to GRF and I come from slightly north of Georgia…Connecticut to be exact. I was introduced to this site by my son and I’m certainly glad that he showed it to me. I am amazed at the quality of the bass (especially the shoalies) in your rivers. It’s great to see groups of people sharing info about the fish that you have caught. Since I am in the market for a kayak, I found your site very helpful in narrowing my search for a river yak. I truly appreciate the info.

Last week, I was fortunate enough to partake in southern fishing for the first time in my life and really enjoyed the experience. Perhaps I’ll get to meet some of you over the next couple of years during a float down the Flint.

Take care and most of all “Tight lines”…ehyac

My name is John and I moved from the Eastern Shore of Maryland to Atlanta at the end of September 2007. I have jumped in with both feet to kayak fishing and love it! This fishing down here is completely different so I am up for any help anyone can offer! I love light tackle and fish for anything! I really enjoy saltwater and have just started to learn this freshwater fishing. I did a little freshwater back in MD but it was just ponds. I have fished on the Shenandoah River which was a blast!

I hope to be able to meet a bunch of you all on a float sometime.

Robert - moved here with work and desperately missing the smallmouth waters on the New River. Looks like Shoal Bass fishing is almost identical, less the chance of a huge Muskee hitting your fish if you fight em into flat water.
