Riverdog
Just wanted to say that I really enjoy this site. I started fishing the Flint last year. I am fairly new to river fishing and have learned quite alot about where to start from yall. I currently have a old Gruman 17' square back, one day hope to get a SOT. I have a 9 yr. old son and a 12 yr. old daughter that usually want to tag along, so I have to have room for them. Looking foward to meeting some of you.

New To GA

Postby flashg08 » Wed Apr 23, 2008 1:02 am

Hello All,
Just moved to Georgia (Marietta to be exact) about a month ago. Lived in MA my whole life and grew up fishing the rivers/lake/salt up there and in Wisconsin, where I went to college. Largemouths (smallies/pike/muskie in WI) are primarily what I targeted in freshwater and stripers in the salt. New to the whole online fishing community and obviously I am new to fishing down here. Hoping to learn and get out as much as possible. Site seems to be full of all kinds of resources and I am looking forward to catching my first GA fish. Tight Lines.

Hello all,
I am new to the forum and new to the fun of kayaking. I have been a saltwater
and bass fisherman for the past 25 years and a friend introduced me to kayak
fishing. I have seen the light! I haven't had this much fun in years. Anyhow,
I look forward to learning some tricks of the trade from you "seasoned veterans"
and hope to join some of ya'll on a trip in the near future. Anyone know where I
can find a used kayak?
And them Limey eyes, they were eyein' a prize, that some people call manly footwear.

I'm new

Postby orey10m » Thu May 08, 2008 10:07 pm

Hey there! I'm new to this forum and figured i'd say hello. I fish for largemouths, mainly in ponds and lakes. I fish jon boat tournaments and i did a BFL last year.
But next year i'll be at UGA and i figure i want to do more river fishing. I do some already. I mean i have a float tube and I definitely will fly fish for anything.
So yeah, I heard there's some guys from athens on here and that i could probably get hooked up with some spots. I"ve been fishing the yellow more frequently now, thanks to my boosted interest in the river fishing game.

O and btw, i am yet to catch a shoalie ;)

Thanks guys

I live in Gainesville, Ga. I would rather drive across the state and float down a river than mess with the lake. I hooked a 2-3 pound spot my first trip down a river with my uncle and Dad. Since that Day, I have always gravitated towards moving water. I stumbled across this website a couple of weeks ago & have spent way too much time reading articles and looking at pictures. I am in the process of adding a native watercraft to my collection and look forward to making some new floats.

Goodday Guys, Name is Allan and I live in Conyers, been in Georgia for the last 22 years but spent the last 2 overseas . I'm from Michigan originally and have been a river and stream fisherman since I could hold a rod. I just spent 2 years working in Australia and did a lot of fishing while I was there. It was mostly salt water but they have some great trout fishing and some of the best perch fishing in the world, some up to 4 pounds. Looking to learn a bit and meet new people.
