Britta Strom said that her son Carter caught this 7 pound bass in their pond this past weekend. His ugly stick was about 3 feet long and set real lose. Needless to say, she said, he beat out his Pawpa on the first cast. It was so big he couldn't even hold it up hardly. My congrats to Carter on a fine looking fish in our great outdoors!
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.
