A lot of fishing…

And not any catching… Came home for the weekend and decided since the flats go dry during the winter, it was time to hit the home waters. The weather has been crazy here in Ga and most of the waters were blown out, so I decided to hit the hooch Tailwaters. I hit Settles by 8am and was breaking ice heading to the water. I tried Settles for a little over an hour and had no luck and no prospects for anything. So I decided to switch to the Dam and give it a try. I fished there for about an hour and only saw one riser and nobody catching fish. By 1030, it was time to pack it up. I will say it was great to hit the water, although it was cold as can be. It was 33 degrees on the way to the river…

Settles Bridge 8.20.11

I got to hit the Hooch today around Settles Bridge…man it was nice to be on the water again. It was definitely a hot one, I was glad to have my Simms Convertible waders which makes it much cooler. I started at one of my honey holes and I must say that today wasn’t one of it’s better days. It did produce me a one brown, it took five or six good drifts I got to watch him rise and chase it a few times before he took my EHC. I tried this hole with not much luck and decided to move up stream to another spot. One my first good cast I missed my indicator going down, so I shot another long cast and hooked up. This time I brought in good rainbow trout. I tried a little more at this hole with no luck and decided to do some exploring up above the bridge. I found a few good holes that I’ll have to try next time I get to go up there.
