The Palm Sunday Massacre took place over the Mederainian Sea in 1943 when Allied War planes intercepted slow moving German transport planes carrying troops and supplies to General Rommel in North Africa. They shot down all they could before having to return to base. He later stood on a hillside and watched a fuel tanker bringing fuel for his tanks being torpedoed by an allied submarine.

Buddy Bethea, Dylan Bethea and Kevin Bethea of Bose Springs, Fla., using homade jugs that they tie themselves on Spring Break, ate all the Bream, Shellcrackers and Crappie they could eat every nite and carried home 250 mixed and fileted.

Pore Old Fish, the Culverson twins (father and son) took 65 Bream, Crappie and Shellcrackers on Crickets.

30 Bass taken, 1 at 7 lbs. on Plastic from the info we’re getting Big Sow Bass has gone on the beds in many places. Strange things happen.

The Valdosta Bassmasters weighed in at Wingate’s Lodge with Earl Roberson having 11.14 lbs., Ed Deane having 10.4 lbs and a 3.1 lbs. Big Fish, Jerry McKinney had 8.1 lbs.

The Valdosta Kids Club had David Parker taking 1st Place with 4.15 lbs. and Dekota Rayell taking 2nd Place with 3.4 lbs. There was about 8 of the kids but the rain and wind was just too hi for them. They took some short fish but culled them all.
