Seminole Ramlins

by Jack Wingate

This week has been a constant week of big catches of Bass on Spinner Baits, Shellcrackers on Wigglers and loads of Catfish on Wigglers & Cut Bait. The Crappie has taken a backseat to the other fish. It's my opinion that they are backing out of the coves and pockets, easing out to deeper water where it's cool all summer long. The one exception to that one was 26 Crappie by a 6 year old boy from Waverly Hall, Mr. Olin Nelms, who sed, "I know how to catchem but I don't know how to cleanem yet."

Betty Hobbs has taken 2 6 lbs. Bass standing on the bank in 2 different places in the past two weeks. Good for her.

The Big Shellcracker Tournament went something like this: 154 signed up to fish, 38 kids were there. 1st Kim Miller with 18.55 lbs., 2nd Randy Welderex with 17.95 lbs., Big Fish went to Spencer Culverson with 1.4 lbs.

May Flies were seen in two places this week, time to get out your Fly Rod and polish it up, grease the reel and get ready, in case you don't know there is over 200 different species of the May Fly.

The Bainbridge Bass Club fished Lake Andrews on Coheelee Creek with the results of 1st Richard Predmore with 21.18 lbs., 2nd Lance Whiddon with 15.89 lbs., 3rd Stan Mc- Collum with 12.90 lbs. Big Fish went to Richard Predmore with 5.11 lbs.

The Rose City Bass Club fished Sunday, it went something like this: 1st went to Chad King and Sean Neel with 15.95 lbs. of fine Seminole Bass, 2nd Hatton and Hatton with 14.85 lbs., 3rd Brinson and Jarvis with 14.30 lbs. Big Fish went to John Sheafer with 4.50 lbs.

The Big Backwoods Outdoors Saterday was won by Billie Thompson of Albany with a whopping big 31 lbs. plus. Sorry, this is all I have on the 70 boat tournament. Wish I could do better.

The story I must tell of a man and his in Coffee Co. in the mid to late 40's. The reason was there was 1 who lived in Faceville where I was born and raised and one in Recovery also. The older sister and brother went in to Enterprise in 1946 where everyone got a job and went to work. They had been living in a well hidden cave on one of the many creeks in Coffee Co. up until then they were afraid to come out. They were full blooded Indian. However, the Michi tribe of the lower Creek does bizness in 17 states.
