Sam and Cathy Gardner of Colquitt went to Lake Seminole last Tuesday, July 21, and caught a fine mess of shellcracker and bream.

"I can tell you right where to go. I left a big X in the water by the stump we caught these from around," Sam stated. "By the looks of their tail being worn down and the eggs coming out when we unhooked them, we were on a bed," he continued.

Sam said all you need is a bucket of crickets and a can of worms and just the right spot on Fish Pond Drain. He said Cathy might have caught a few more than he did since her end of the boat seemed to be in the best place.
