Please excuse huntingwife's spelling, for she is fairly new to the sport of fresh water fishing. It is bream and my uncle's pond was not made by beavers, but by humans and bulldozers. There are lots of beavers in it, though and there are beaver ponds above and below it. Despite these small errors huntingwife is doing a heluva job adjusting to the hunting/fishing whenever I get a chance lifestyle. She is also a very quick learner at everything, but especially at all of this outdoor stuff. Despite the way that this may sound she is not afraid or unaware of the outdoors, she had just never been as exposed to hunting. SHe is a great saltwater fisherman though and use to spend summers fishing with her grandad in the Keys. Back to the topic at hand, there is some some great hybrid fishing in lake Oconee. :thumbsup:HuntingWife said:Lakes Sinclair and Oconee, but the fish are not really much to brag about. Some bass, catfish, brim, and crappie. Oh, and some water mocassins. The skiing and beer drinking are better! My husband might disagree, but I think the best fishing around here is in his uncle's beaver pond. We have an 8-pound bass on our living room wall that he caught in it.
