Two Different Flavors Of Coastal Redfish
September is the time that the big redfish seek a mate and spawn. It’s during this time that some oversized reds—upward of 30 pounds or more—can be caught. The trick to catching these behemoths is knowing where they will be located.

Georgia is blessed with the best coastal estuary system along the Atlantic shoreline. While only about 100 miles long as the crow flies, it is immeasurable when you consider all of...

High School Bass Teams Help Create Fish Habitat At West Point Lake
Like wet Johnny Appleseeds, bass-fishing teams from Alexander, Central, Harris County, Crosspointe Christian, Breman, Carrollton and Newnan high schools literally jumped in the lake to create important new fish habitat at West Point Lake.

As a young boy who often visited his grandparents, Lelia McDuffie and Eddie Tennesse Smith, in Wilcox County back in the 1960s, I thought that mullet was the best tasting fish to ever be pulled from the water and put on a plate. But hey, the pure fact was that I was starving at the time, and that probably had a lot to do with that assessment. The ladies of the family would sit around and talk all...

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.
