    We can start planning for it, dependent on what the season will be. Still say a 6/60 this year is my guess.

    I've got a boat with a blind, that will hold 3 if necessary. January hunts are tough for me though, as that starts my "busy" season. Could do a Sunday one pretty easy though at that time of year.

    I shot a banded Black Duck over there last season on the "TUNA". All the GA hunters are headed off to OOS some sucker from Bama or Arkansas, or S. Carolina out of their honey hole for 1 lousy shot at a duck..........

    And I'm sitting less than an hour from the house popin divers and an occasioal bonus duck like a Pintail or Black or Wiidgeon.

    NO pressure = Blood Bath.

    Believe it. But you didn't hear it from me. :no

    Coosa = Pintails

    TUNA = Blood Bath.

    I planted a mud flat with Millet over there this time last year and nobody ever hunted it but me. NOBODY. Like a private hole on public land. :yes

    Well, Market, you know it's always safer to hunt with a buddy. Out of concern for your safety, I'd be willing to tag along with you for a hunt or two.

    I don't know if this applies anymore, but when the lake was low in the mid-late 80s, the mouth of the Etowah River was a great place to hunt.

    Shot mallards and teal.

    You would probably have to have a layout boat to hunt it today since the water is high again.
