Kevin Charleston grew up on Lake Michigan, and he’s catching Lake Burton trout using the same methods he learned up there. He’s trolling the main-lake channel during the heat of the summer with a watermelon-colored trolling spoon 25 feet deep on a downrigger. This rainbow weighed 7-lbs., 3-ozs. on Kevin’s digital scales, well above the certified lake record of 5 1/2 pounds.


Jim Blackmon, of Elberton, enjoyed a day of fishing at Clarks Hill Lake in July.


David Barrow, of Senoia, killed this 11-point buck in Meriwether County on Nov. 19.


Craig Morrison, of Ball Ground, killed a big Cherokee County gobbler opening morning last season. The bird had 1 1/2-inch hooks and an 11 1/2-inch beard.


Chuck Morgan got this gobbler March 27 in Murray County after three days of tight-lipped toms. The mountain bird had spurs 1 2/16 and 1 1/16 inches long, and he weighed 19-lbs., 7-ozs.
