Find Bream To Find Shallow Sinclair Bass
July is not a favorite month for most bass fishermen. Water and air temperatures are hot, and that makes most bass move deep. Fishing can be a sweaty frustration during the day, and many anlgers just don’t like to cast at night. But you can catch bass in July, especially at Lake Sinclair.

Sinclair is a 15,330-acre Georgia Power Co. lake on the Oconee River immediately below Lake Oconee. Sinclair is lined with docks and has a lot of water-willow grassbeds in the shallows....

Spring Family Fun Catching Whiting On The Georgia Coast
The barrier islands on the southeast Georgia coast are paradise for an outdoors enthusiast. They vary from the private and pristine to federally and state-protected reserves, but all share a degree of raw beauty that is tough to beat. In addition, they offer great recreational options for the locals as well as the hordes of tourists that frequent the area.

I had the pleasure of experiencing some great early season angling action with a local family who spends a lot of time in these waters. The Rykard family, of Colonels Island, spends much of their free time on the water, and once the early spring temperatures start to rise, they are likely to be headed out most weekends.

I met Mitch and his daughters Caroline, 13, and Caitlyn, 11, on a cool morning in mid-March at the Half Moon Marina not far from their Colonels Island home. Also aboard was Paul Raudenbush, of Jacksonville, Fla., a friend of Mitch’s and one of my frequent fishing companions.
