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.”

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...

GON's Tracking Dogs & Deer Coolers Lists
Here's GON's 2014-2015 Dial-a-Tracking Dog and Deer Coolers lists. Some folks have dropped off the lists this year, but there are some new faces, as well. If you have a deer down, these lists should provide everything you need to find it and get it to a cooler for storage or processing.
