Joe Booker says: "There are a few big kitty's on the Flint...This one was 37 1/2 lbs. We took a couple more that were 33 and 28.... "

"We call it summer-time fishing.....We start with a can of red wigglers and some ultra-lite gear. Catch a few nice blue-gill; rig with free weight and let them swim in the deep holes on the Flint north of Albany, GA. Just sit back, tell a few stories and wait to hear the clickers play their tunes."

I am actually from the North Atlanta area myself but when my good friends from Albany introduced me to the big kitties, I have become obsessed. Now all my business trips include over-nite stays, most of which is spent on the Flint seeking out another big App. Just good ole Southern fishing!!!! Wet a hook!"
