Sheri Venters with a nice spotted bass she caught at Lake Russell on June 5.


“Thought I would send this picture of my almost 90-year-old mother, Allie Minor and her big 6-point, 4 1/2-year old Clay County buck. She loves to hunt deer and turkeys,” said Larry Minor.


An albino catfish? Shahrokh Fard, of Atlanta, was fishing with Kyle Townsend when they reeled in this unusual catch. They were fishing private property on Big Haynes Creek above Randy Poynter Lake (Black Shoals) in Rockdale County.


Bryan Davis got this gobbler in Putnam County on April 2—the much later-than-normal opening day of Georgia’s turkey season. The 23-lb. bird had a 10-inch beard and 1 1/8-inch spurs.


Steven Cleveland, of Elbert County, took a trip to Clarks Hill the day after father’s day with his son Aubrey Wheeler, of Commerce. Nice catfish!

Birthday bream! Susan Hodges, of Oxford, caught this 1-lb., 3-oz. bluegill in May at a Newton County farm pond on her birthday.


Sylvan Anderson, of Hiram, killed his personal best buck on his first hunt Oct. 26 last season in Paulding County. “Hung my climber stand at lunch break and left work early,” Sylvan said. “He came in and ran off a spike chasing a doe. God put me in the right place at the right time!”


Amy Maddox boated this tagged bass at Big Lazer PFA. The tag was reported and the fish was released.


Christy Rainwater caught this hefty redeye bass while fishing the Tallapoosa River with a Mepps spinner.


Holly Floyd killed this nice 8-point buck on opening day last season in Burke County. What a fine first buck Holly!

Jackson Miller with a nice buck he killed in Miller County last season.


A Ned rig drew a bite from this 4.2-lb. Lake Lanier spotted bass for Loran Crabtree during a May trip.
