Winter is finally here, at least it felt like it last Sunday! Pretty good chance that this coming Sunday will be chilly as well. The funny part was that it was one of our highest average weight per fish and all but just a couple of boats weighed fish! The message is that the bigger spots are starting to show up again, as they do about this time every year. Come on out and join us, dress warm though!
From I-75 North or South, Take Exit 290 (Cartersville/GA20 Exit) Travel East on GA 20 approximately 500 feet and take a right on GA Spur 20 (Between Kangaroo Grocery and Wendy's), travel approximately 3 miles and take a left on Bartow County Beach Road (the Corps signs no longer exist, so look for the small Gatewood Ramp sign)or turn left on Jim Knight Rd. and go till it dead-ends to Bartow County Beach Rd and turn left. Travel to the end of Bartow County Beach Road and the ramp will be on your left

Cold Clearing skies, mid to low 40s and a stiff WNW wind up to 20 MPH! Water temps ranged from 50 to 52 degrees, the main lake in front of Gatewood has a heavy stain, but McCaskey Creek was starting to clear pretty good around the campground area. I would assume the same could be said of most of the other creeks too. Last week the Allatoona arm was pretty clear. This week's rain raised the level up about a foot, but they are already back to pulling it again, current level is 837"MSL.
We had 11 paid entries, 12 boats with mine. 20 anglers brought 33 fish to the scales for a total weight of 60.84lbs (average 1.84lbs per fish). It's starting to look up, a lot of folks reported catching fish fairly shallow in spite of the high pressure and post frontal conditions!
Here's the way it paid out today:
3rd place went to Jim and Joe C with 3 fish for 5.96LBs for $33
2nd place went to Mike G. with 3 fish for 5.97lbs (2nd and 3rd were CLOSE!)for $50
1st place went to "legendary" Jason Mullinax with 3 fish for 8.63lbs, his Big Bass was a beast that weighed 6.32lbs (a Largemouth)! That awesome creel netted Jason $82 for first, $120 side pot and $55 for Big Bass! Great Job to Jason, and to everyone who got out there and brought fish to the scales!

Come on out and Join us next week, the lakes is settling down and the fishing should improve even more.
