Lake Seminole??

Does anyone know if where the mouth of the Chattahoochee meets the big water is in Georgia?

How's the hunting there?

Unfortunately that map is of the hooch around Atlanta. The 'hooch runs along the AL/GA line and pours into Lake Seminole in the SW corner of GA. Most of Lake Seminole is considered part of GA, with small bits being considered FL and some bits considered AL. You'd need a map of the Lake to determind the exact state lines because ignorance is not considered an excuse by the local DNRs for being in the wrong state with a license for a state 100 ft away. Go to a local Walmart for a map..or Bainbridge Sporting Goods and stores around the lake have them if you're a local. We do a lot of hunting in the big lake in GA and have some good hunting. Where are you located?

I looked online for you. Hard to find lake maps w/o buying them. Try this. The mouth of it is pretty much split b/t GA and FL..so it depends on which side you wish to hunt. The best I came up with for now is this.
http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?co ... ++Search++

Just copy/paste it into your addy bar.
You'll have to click on Lake Sem. to get it centered then zoom in a bit and it will show you roughly which part is Jackson Co. FL and which part is in GA. But like I said, you probably want to buy a detailed map to find out the exact lines.

I live in Statesboro and have been hunting Seminole for about 5 years. I'm just now really figuring out how to hunt Seminole. I bought 3 dozen cheap greenhead decoys and painted them coot color; and have a dozen bluebills. The key is a large amount of coots and a lot of scouting.

Whats the best way to set the decoys out? I usually put the coots in line (kinda like a triangle) with the big decoys away a couple of feet and in the back of the group.
