Former Hinesville mayor and state representative Buddy DeLoach is back in the mix of Georgia state politics.
I have several fishing reports from anglers who have braved the heat recently to get out on the water.
WAYCROSS - Since the completion of the tagging portion of the flathead catfish project in April and as of Aug. 3, biologists and technicians have removed 2,572 flathead catfish from the Satilla River.
SOCIAL CIRCLE - Whether still-hunting, stalk-hunting or squirrel-dog hunting is your preference, squirrel season started Wednesday.
BRUNSWICK - One of Georgia's oldest artificial reefs known to most anglers and divers as G Reef has been renamed the "HLHA Reef" in honor of now-retired Coastal Resources Division biologist and artificial reef project coordinator, Henry Ansley.
Our fishing is improving every week. The fishing reports had bass, flounder and trout. The flounder have started to bite, and their favorite bait is minnows.
The 2007-2008 Georgia Hunting Seasons and Regulations Guide now is available, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division.
Coastal fishing continues to be slow because of the hot weather.
Georgia's State Parks, Recreation and Historic Sites Division is a finalist for the National Recreation and Park Association's "Gold Medal Excellence in Park & Recreation Management" award - the most prestigious award a recreation agency can achieve. Georgia shares the honor with state park systems from Utah and Tennessee.
The weather continues to stay hot, however, I believe our fishing season has started, judging from the fishing reports I have received this past week. The fishermen are catching bass, trout and flounder.
Recent improvements at Yeomans Bird Pond, one of East Liberty's showplaces, have brought more than just the desired visitors. Observers at the pond, home to a variety of coastal birds, have reported at least two alligators, which they suspect are being fed by visitors because of the fearless way they approach the boardwalk when people visit the area.
Alligators in Georgia currently have a population of more than 200,000, thanks to scientific wildlife management, according to the state DNR.
Women have three opportunities to improve various outdoor skills, including shooting (archery and firearms), fishing and camping, according to the Georgia DNR.
Well folks, I hope this week finds everyone healthy and happy.
15 nanometers. That’s how small the LIFESAVER® bottle 4000UF filters down to. What exactly does that mean? Well, the smallest known virus (Polio) is 25 nanometers. With this super-efficient filter, you can drink in peace knowing that it’s screened out all bacteria, viruses, cysts, parasites, fungi and microbiological waterborne pathogens known to man.
Hello, friends and fellow anglers all around the coastal region. Hope you were ready for the cold snap. At least you won't have to worry about the gnats biting.
