Trout Stocking Options

Rainbow Trout

With the cooler weather setting in this weekend, it is time for trout stocking. Rainbow trout are super aggressive and easy to catch out with some effort.  Because of this you can stock your pond no matter where you are in Georgia and enjoy them for six months and even longer in north GA.  They […]

2019 Crayfish Stocking

Chilly Start Another spring has wrapped up and with that comes crayfish stocking. This spring was odd and it even continued into our stockings. Past crayfish stockings are usually accompanied with Gatorade, 90 degree temps, and the dreaded swamp funk we get from releasing a couple thousand pounds of crayfish. The very first delivery went […]

March 19th-23rd Electroshock Recap

Another great week is in the books for the shock team. Erratic weather continues to plague the Southeast but the fish are still making their migration towards the shallows.

Winter Chores

Ever wonder why the Midwestern United States grows such huge deer versus other parts of the lower 48? A little hint is good dirt grows big deer. The same concept applies for growing trophy bass. Unlike the Midwest, here in the Southeast we are not blessed with good dirt. Being famous for having red clay […]

Winter Fish Habitat Improvements

The holidays have wrapped up and the dread of taking Christmas decorations down has sunk in. Most of your decorations are headed back to the attic or for curbside pick up. Think twice before chunking that Christmas tree away. When bluegill first hatch they are less than one inch long and extremely vulnerable to bass. […]

Threadfin Shad Kill

As temperatures continue to plummet in the Southeast many lakes are reaching unheard of temperatures. Most fish will hunker down in the deepest portion of the lake and ride out the storm. However, some fish are more susceptible than others. A key food source that becomes vulnerable in extreme cold is Threadfin shad. Around forty-five […]
