Spent a fun relaxing weekend with Jos and friends, Captain Larry Lawley and his wife Marilyn. Great food, conversation, weather, scenery... and of course, fishing!

Here are a few of the variety of sunfish we caught at Athens, Purtis and Bluegill cabins where we stayed...

























If any of you are interested in the scenic, dining and lodging part of this trip, I'll be doing a video on Vimeo later this week. Strongly recommend Bluegill Cabins for lodging in this area!

Thanks, man! Yep, it's been a pretty good year. No monster blues or bowfin, but plenty of nice fish. Glad you like the pics. If you are interested, here is the video of the three locations... https://vimeo.com/142461478
