Bert's Big Adventure

UO Staff hosted Waycross flatlander Bert Deener for a brief change of scenery.  Bert, an Okeefenokee, Altamaha, and Ossabaw expert from bowfin to tarpon, first grabbed a blueline rod and chased little wild rainbows at the top of the mountain. 

The next morning he changed to a stout 8-weight rig and enticed a few Nacoochee Bend stripers for a photo opp. White County got a big thumbs-up from this South Georgia fishing expert and lure maker.  


We believe he'll be back up here soon!

Shoalie Science

We are honored and grateful to be working closely with the Shoal Bass Genetics Project that is currently going on. If you are fortunate enough to catch a tagged fish, it is important to handle these fish with care, and to relay the information to GA DNR to help build a database for this valuable resource.

Consolation Prize, Indeed!

He started the evening throwing an 8 wt. for gar with no success. As expected, he dredged the bottom for this whopper at the end of the day. Was all he could handle on that 8 wt. rod.
