Hey UnckleBud, I saw your teeth chattering as I was fishing across from you dockside. I figured you were on fire to withstand the lighting strikes. I too have been fishing Athens for 5 or so years and never caught a sand bass until this weekend. I caught 4 sandies, 1 @ 18" basically doing the same technique. Thanks for the pics and glad you avoided the jet ski convention that followed soon after the weather passed. Good times!
