Allatoona Species

Thread starter #1
I was sitting around talkinv the other day thinking about fishing the Etowa to shoot some buffs and drum then I realized I have never saw or heard of anyone shooting buffs or drums in Toona. Anyone have a good explanation why they are not in the lake?

they are in lake weiss in the Coosa river system. Drum and a few other species migrate up in the summer. Small mouth buffs are native to the coosa river system, but not the etowah drainage. They can't make it up and over the dam so they stay below Allatoona. If you want more of a explanation call me.

:cheers:I like to get other poinions than your on some stuff Mark:whip: besides with the drum being a native species you would of thought a few would have been above the dam before it was built. :crazy:

Then, mark moved to cartersville, and put the gator gar on the endangered species list. Thus, leaving allatoona with it's rightful name "the dead sea",

You don't need no stinking drum to shoot, there's plenty of carp and goldfish to shoot at already, you just need to figure out where there hiding at!
I'm just suprised nobody is shooting more goldfish, I know we did not shoot them out by any means, they use to be everywhere, but I did not see any the last time out there as well, but I was in some different areas. I need to get up there and see if I can find them again and check on my "babies" as well to see how their doing!

Mark, Iv seen your goldfish. As far as your "babies", don't worry bout them. They are in good hands.:biggrin2: I just can't get rid of the stinking red horse suckers. Man those things had a great spawn all through out the state.

Chris, I don't think the state will stock any fish that aren't considered "game fish". Take a Friday off one day, and I'll show you how to shoot some drum. ;)
