Hello friends and fellow anglers, I hope everyone had a good week and a nice weekend.
The (Bluff-Master) Timmy Blount and fist mate Lamar Beasley had a good day of fishing, landing 30 sheepshead, four black drum and two whiting.
That sounds like an evening of cold beer, hush puppies, cheese grits and a good old fish fry, South Georgia-style.
I plan on hitting the docks this weekend and with any luck I will be writing about it next week.
We did catch one spottail this week and as I was cleaning it like usual I checked out what it had been eating. I was surprised this one was hungry even for the shrimp I had as bait. This bass had eight minnows in his stomach. I am happy he had room for one more shrimp.
In the photo this week is a young angler on the rise. You can tell by Marcus Pugh’s face that he loves to go fishing. The photo was taken after a recent trip with his father and my friend, James Pugh.
Registration for the 2016 bass tournament at Metz Pond is open. The tournament is April 23 and is open to everyone. You can register at Pass and Permit offices on Fort Stewart and Hunter.
First place wins $250, largest bass wins $100 and there will be door prizes after weigh-in. Score will be determined by total weight of five fish.
Registration costs vary depending on when you sign up and whether you’re military or civilian. For details call 912-435-8061 on Stewart or 912-315-5163 on Hunter.
So get out there, register and wet a hook. Remember what Old Tight-Line always said, get out there and go fishing and, if you do, remember to always keep a tight line. That`s it for this week.
