Coots are coming in

Hot off the press, “Bassing Times” from the White House; Recreation Fishen on the following lakes could be a thing of the past if the laws intended are passed, Pymatuning on the Pennsylvania Ohio border, the upper Mississippi River, Lake Castic in California, Okeechobee in Florida, the Delta in California, Amistad in Texas, the Buffalo River in Arkansas, Table Rock in Missouri and Guntersville in Alabama.

I must say that it is likely, Mr. Oboma don’t know about this, since he has hired some, “Dillies” to work for him, tis not likely he would want to stir up a hornets nest like this will be.

I just got to read the FFA book October-November issue, Mule Day just having past with 50 wagons from Moultrie and 10 from Bainbridge, we note the over 30 riders left Mexico just west of El Paso Texas on April 21, 2009, and arrived in Canada on Sept. 5, 2009, on horseback, with stops along the way, a trip more than 1,800 miles.

The coots are coming in every nite now, lots of ring necks coming in now, we will see how good they stick when they find a lot of the Hydrilla gone in the Flint. Duck season opens 21 of November for a few days.

The big snails are all over the lake now, thousands in ever cove and along the docks. We’ll see how that helps or hurts the bass fishen.

Eddie Ditto placed fourth in the Forida State Federation and gets to go to fish the Regional on Lake UFalla in June.

The Bainbridge Bass Club fished Saterday on Talquin and then Sunday on Seminole the same fisherman Stan McCollum of Havana won both tournements. Sunday Seminole fell near a foot and that ain’t good in nobodies pond.

Crappie has turned on in good fashion, many catches were taken on minnows in shallow water. We also know that hybreds and stripers are on the prod again some 8- and 10-pounders are coming in on crank baits.

Black bass has been on the slow side for most of the week.
