Summertime Catfish Memories at Oconee
The rod sticking off the back of the boat started to gently wave as though a fish might be messing with the bait, and guide Chad Smith urged patience and said, “Wait for it. Wait for it.”

Within a few seconds, the rod doubled down in a deep bend, and a big catfish was on! I have caught more than my share of good fish in years’ past, so now it was time for my grandson, Jack Trussell, to step up to the rod and do...

Will Altman Wins GON’s Youth Shoot-Out
Will Altman, 12, of Statesboro, wasted little time going to Adventure Outdoors in Smyrna with $3,000 in his pocket. Will was enjoying his big shopping spree less than 24 hours after winning GON’s Youth Big-Buck Contest Shoot-Out on July 24 at GON’s Outdoor Blast at the Gwinnett Center.

For winning the Youth Shoot-Out, Will also won an additional grand prize—a dream deer and hog hunting trip with Woods-N-Water in Wrightsville. In addition to some quality father-and-son stand time, Will and his dad will be staying at a remote and quiet lodge, will be well fed, and they get to fish during the middle of the day.

Christmas came early!” said Amy Altman, Will’s mom. “He is also looking forward to another dream experience with Woods-N-Water Hunting and Fishing Adventures when he gets to spend a weekend in the woods doing...

The first archery shoot I attended was in the early 80s. The targets were large square bales of straw or cardboard with photos of...

Fishing
Beat The Heat With Inshore Pot-Luck Catching
Every saltwater angler worth his or her salt knows the best all-around fishing is to be had in either the spring or the fall months. If it’s too cold, fish seem to acquire a case of lockjaw. And if it’s too hot, they seem to just disappear. Well, July is here; it’s hot, and the saltwater fishing will be completely shut down. Those were my exact thoughts as I drove to Richmond...
